Football pundit Paul Merson has made a bold statement after he predicted Arsenal’s win in the upcoming North London derby. Merson said that currently, Tottenham is under immense pressure from losing back-to-back EPL matches and so they are vulnerable to a defeat at Arsenal.
“No offense to Tottenham fans, but Arsenal for me are going to win the derby. If you look at Arteta’s squad especially the new signings, you will see that Arsenal have a new strength at the back. Tottenham on the other hand, contradict Arsenal’s improvement; they are weak defensively. If Arsenal score first in the game, I’ll consider the match done and settled because Tottenham will not crack a goal against Arsenal."
