Ray Parlour states his prediction for Chelsea v Hull

Ray Parlour looks ahead to Chelsea's clash with Hull City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon

Ray Parlour is backing Chelsea to claim a straightforward win over Hull City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues head into the game looking to continue their recent impressive form and maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Chelsea are currently flying high at the top of the table and are seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham heading into this weekend’s round of fixtures.

The west London side have firmly established themselves as the favourites to win the title this season and were 3-0 winners over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium last weekend.

And former Arsenal man Parlour is not expecting to see Chelsea have any problems against Hull City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Up Front podcast, Parlour predicted: “You’d expect them to get all three points against Hull City.”

Cheslea’s remarkable upturn in form under new boss Antonio Conte is in sharp contrast to their struggles last season, when they ended up 10th in the table.
