EPL Paul Merson warns Arsenal over Liverpool, singles out one player. The legendary Paul Merson of Arsenal has cautioned the Gunners that this weekend’s Premier League match against Liverpool will be more difficult than the match against Tottenham. William Saliba, an Arsenal defender, was singled out by Merson for appreciation in light of his outstanding performance this season for both club and nation.
Remember how Arsenal upset their London rival 3-1 last Sunday at the Emirates Stadium?
On Sunday, Mikel Arteta’s group will play the Reds at Emirates Stadium.
Merson said Sky Sports, “I always believed the Liverpool game this weekend would be harder than the Tottenham [Hotspur] game for Arsenal.
“Now that Liverpool and Arsenal are performing the way they are, and the supporters are showing up this weekend with high expectations to win that game, it gets even difficult.
“Arsenal finishing fourth would still be incredible after so long outside the top four. It’s a big game on Sunday, but Liverpool has been so competitive with the points they’ve scored.
Fair play to William Saliba, who was substituted for France’s match against Denmark at halftime the other day, the coach said. “To come back and play so well shows you the strength of the young guy; you would think he is old, but he is not,” he said.
