Paul Merson Premier League Prediction: Merse Backs Arsenal Triumph

Former Arsenal forward Paul Merson has predicted that the Gunners will pip Manchester City to a first Premier League title since 2002. Read on see the full Paul Merson Premier League prediction.

Arsenal go into the international break eight points clear at the summit of the Premier League table, as Manchester City sit in second with a game in hand.

Mikel Arteta’s side displayed some poor form at the start of February, but have turned it around since.

Despite exiting the Europa League at the hands of Sporting Lisbon, the Gunners have won their last six Premier League outings.

Their exit from Europe certainly disappointed the majority of fans, but it can only be a positive for their push for the league title.

Manchester United just about remained in the title race for a while, but a drop in form has seen them move 19 points adrift of the league leaders.

Debates over who will be crowned champions of the English top-flight have been constant.

One who has now weighed in on these debates is former England and Arsenal striker Paul Merson.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Merse highlighted the importance of the TV fixtures to the title race.

“Arsenal’s destiny will be decided when the TV fixtures get released, in terms of who plays first on a weekend. I say that because if Arsenal play first they could go 11 points clear at the top.” he said.

“I know Man City would have two games in hand but it’s a huge swing. 11 points is massive, you can’t make any mistakes. The pressure can get to you. It’s a really big advantage to be able to play your game without distractions.”

The 55-year-old then went on to deliver his prediction as to who will lift the title come the end of the season.

“I see Arsenal winning it from here. The way they are dismantling lesser teams is unreal.

“You’d have thought Arsenal were playing against nine men at Fulham last week, that’s how dominant they were. The same against Crystal Palace.

“Arsenal are Rolls-Royce. I don’t see them getting caught.”
