Paul Merson gives his prediction on Liverpool Vs Arsenal

Paul Merson believes Arsenal would win the weekend tie.

The Gunners aim to extend their gap with Liverpool to 14 points by securing a win on Sunday evening.

Paul Merson claims Liverpool game is one of the toughest tests for Arsenal but backed his former side to win the game 2-1.

‘This is a tougher game for Arsenal than the Tottenham one and I say this because the fans and the players were naturally hyped for the derby,’ Merson told Sportskeeda.

‘If Arsenal win against Liverpool and manage to stay close to Manchester City in the coming months, they could well be contenders for the Premier League title this season.

‘The Reds will have a bit more rest heading into the much-anticipated Premier League clash, but on current form, Arsenal are probably favourites as things stand.

‘Liverpool played four forwards against Rangers and dominated the game as they secured a 2-0 win at Anfield.

‘I just fancy Arsenal, but I’m not as confident as I was against Tottenham. There was no way Arsenal were going to lose that game, I’m not as sure with this one as it represents a different test for the table toppers.

‘This is a massive game for the Gunners and could be one of the biggest tests of Arteta’s managerial career so far. I’m going for Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool.’
