Ian Wright is expecting to see Chelsea take another giant stride towards winning the Premier League title by beating Middlesbrough 4-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The Blues head into the game having established themselves as the firm favourites to win the title in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at the club.

Chelsea boosted their title bid last weekend with an impressive 3-0 win at Everton to leave them needing three more victories to lift the trophy.

And former Arsenal star Wright is tipping the west London side to take another step towards the trophy by thrashing Middlesbrough in front of their home fans.

Asked to predict Chelsea v Middlesbrough, Wright told The Sun Goals podcast: “I’d go Chelsea to win 4-0.”

Chelsea are chasing a domestic double this season and will take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley later in the month.
