Ex-Gunner predicts home wins for Arsenal and Man Utd.


It's home wins for Arsenal and Manchester United, according to Paul Merson.

The Gunners host Everton on Sunday, looking to bounce back to winning ways after their disappointing Wednesday night performance in the Champions League last 16 first-leg against Monaco which saw them lose 3-1 to the French side.

Arsenal have won two in their last ten matches in all competitions and are third in the Premier League table, twelve points adrift of league leaders Chelsea.

However, Merson thinks a 3-0 win to Arsene Wenger’s team will be the final score, increasing Arsenal’s chances of cementing a top-four spot.

"Arsenal will win this match quite easily. Everton are struggling quite badly at the moment and only got out of jail last week with a last-minute goal at home to Leicester," he told Sky Sports.

"It is Arsenal all over really, they will get back to normal and then their disastrous Wednesday against Monaco will all be forgotten about.

"So I do not see anything other than a 3-0 Arsenal win here."

When asked what he thought about the Manchester United tie against Gus Poyet’s Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, he replied: “Sunderland are struggling badly at the moment and they cannot score goals, while Manchester United had a bad result last week at Swansea.

“However, while United have not been playing well recently, I still expect them to beat Sunderland 3-0.”
