Paul Merson makes his prediction for Arsenal’s game with Norwich
Former Arsenal winger Paul Merson has made his prediction ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Norwich City on Saturday and he’s backing us to pick up all three points.
Any remote chance of winning the title ended last weekend and the drab 0-0 draw at Sunderland has now left us battling for the coveted ‘top four trophy’ once again.
With Man Utd just five points behind with a game in hand, we need to beat Norwich tomorrow to cement our position and move a huge step closer to securing Champions League football next season.
Obviously Norwich arrive in deep trouble as they are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the league but former Arsenal winger Paul Merson thinks we’ll ease to a relatively comfortable 3-0 win tomorrow.
Writing in his column for Sky Sports, he said:
Arsenal v Norwich
Norwich will know what they have to do, if Newcastle and Sunderland have got results then they need to get something out of this game.
At the same time, Arsenal are fighting now. They’ve gone from trying to win the league to fighting for the top four. I expect Arsenal to win this game, I’m one of those people who think they’ll keep winning and most of the time they let you down.
But they need to win, because if Manchester United and West Ham win they could soon be out of the top four.
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0
A win would open up an eight point gap ahead of United’s huge clash with Leicester on Sunday. However, if they beat the Foxes and win their game in hand, then it looks as though we’ll have to get a positive result at Man City on the penultimate game of the season.
