Merson Predicts A Goal Fest In Arsenal’s Clash Against Manchester United

Ex-Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson is predicting a high scoring game when the Gunners face Manchester United at the Emirates tomorrow.

Unai Emery’s side are coming off the back of a disappointing loss to Rennes in the Europa League, while the Red Devils will be still on cloud nine after their shock comeback win against PSG.

Merson believes, however, that both sides will see this as a chance to stake their claim for a top-four finish:

“I can’t say it will decide fourth place with Chelsea there. It’s in Chelsea’s hands really but I think whoever lost the game would be in trouble so it’s a massive game. I think both teams will have a go at each other and there will be goals.”

The TV pundit is going for a 2-2 draw; a score that would keep Arsenal a point behind United but could see them being leapfrogged by Chelsea, who face Wolves earlier on Sunday afternoon.

The race for fourth looks likely to go down to the wire, with the United game having a very important bearing on the Gunners’ season.

It could, therefore, prove to be a crucial week in Unai Emery’s reign in charge, with the second leg against Rennes coming next Thursday as well.
