Arsenal vs Tottenham: Paul Merson Predicts Premier League Clash


Arsenal hero, Paul Merson, has predicted the Gunners to beat Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in the Premier League derby at Emirates.

Merson believes Arsenal are the favourite to win the London derby because of their passing and movements.

Arsenal are currently seven points adrift Jose Mourinho’s side on the log.

“I think Arsenal are favourites against them this weekend. I really do,” Merson told the Daily Star.

“If both teams play to the best of their ability, I think Arsenal win the game. I think their passing and movement is better.

“Spurs rely too much on Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, and lately Gareth Bale. But Arsenal are a different team to the one Spurs beat in December.

“Bukayo Saka is playing really well. Willian looks like he has turned a corner. Nicolas Pepe had his best game yet against Leicester.

“And Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is scoring goals again and looks much more confident. Arsenal will have to keep the back door shut, but I give them every chance in this game.

“And if Spurs don’t win, that is it for their top-four chances. They can’t afford to lose this game. One hundred per cent.”

The kick-off time for the match is 5.30 pm.
