Liverpool fans want Arsenal to beat Man City: Paul Merson gives his prediction for this game

Pundit Paul Merson is expecting a tough game between Manchester City and Arsenal. However, Paul Merson believes City are the favourites.

Merson has said Liverpool fans will be supporting Arsenal for this game, even though Man City are 3rd in the league – because of how good City can be.

He told Sportskeeda: “If Kyle Walker and John Stones don’t play, I don’t see Arsenal not getting a result here.

“If all the players are fit for City, they will win this, because they just turn up and win big football matches.

“This result will hinge on the fitness of the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Walker and Stones.

“Let’s not get ahead of ourselves – the Gunners are still well behind City in terms of overall quality, because it is scary how good Pep Guardiola’s side can be when they are on song.

“They’ve won 19 and drawn three since last tasting defeat against Aston Villa in December. That’s what Arsenal are up against.

“I know plenty of people fancy Arsenal to finally go to the Etihad and get a great result, but a fully fit City are about as tough as they come.

“If you’re a Liverpool fan, you’d want Arsenal to win this one, because City’s fixtures get ridiculously favourable after this match. I think they’ll go on and win another treble if they beat the Gunners this weekend.

“This is the match of the weekend. The goal difference between the two sides is massive right now. If Arsenal win this game, they go four points clear of City and with that goal difference, it could prove to be decisive in the title race. Both teams are evenly matched at the moment, however, and we could see a draw in this match.
