Paul Merson backs Chelsea to win Man Utd.

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson is backing Chelsea to seal a win over Manchester United on Monday.

The Red Devils host the Premier League champions at Old Trafford as they look to end their seven-match winless run, while the Blues are getting better under their new boss Guus Hiddink – who is searching for his first win since his return to the west London club.

"It was another bad day for Manchester United on Boxing Day and with Chelsea improving, the roles have sort of been reversed, the Arsenal great told Sky Sports HQ.

"Chelsea, now under Guus Hiddink, are rolling along and I expect that to continue at OId Trafford, although the absence of Diego Costa through suspension is a big blow. I'm going for a clear away win by two goals to nil."
