EPL: You’re struggling – Paul Merson tells Chelsea, suggests two players to sign
Arsenal hero, Paul Merson has named two players Chelsea must add to their squad this January transfer window.
He believes Brighton duo Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma would help Chelsea challenge for the Premier League and Champions League titles.
Thomas Tuchel’s have slipped 11 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City ahead of Sunday’s clash with fellow title challengers Liverpool.
Merson believes the Blues are ‘struggling’ and ‘stuck in treacle’ and at this point, need to bolster their team.
“Chelsea were flying but it’s different now, they’re struggling,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“I went the other night [against Brighton], you watch Man City play and it’s ping, ping, ping. You watch Chelsea and it’s hard.
“They got well beat the other night. They drew but Brighton were outstanding.
“‘If I was Chelsea I would go and get Cucurella, I would definitely go and get him and I would get Bissouma.”
He said the fact these players play for Brighton should not be a problem, adding that they were the best performers when Chelsea played Brighton last week.
“Chelsea is stuck in treacle at the moment,” he added.
