“Cannon” still maintains the status of the top team in the table despite some stumbles in European football. Chelsea face a London derby this weekend. And Merson believes Mikel Arteta’s side will be happy with the draw UFABET
“This is a big game for both teams for different reasons.” Merson wrote in his column for Sportskida. “If Arsenal win they are 13 points ahead of Chelsea. Look at the reality. Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea haven’t talked about winning the Premier League. The title race for them is over. And they’re looking at finishing in the top four.
“If Arsenal win this game they have to lose five games for Chelsea to catch up and Chelsea have to win them all. This is a big game for Arsenal, they must avoid defeat. They have to make sure not to be the dominant team but not win.
“If the gun don’t lose this game then you expect them to go on and on for the Premier League title. I’m not sure who will play for Chelsea this week. We all know how Arsenal will play and why they are top of the Premier League table.
“Right now, Arsenal are flying in the Premier League and they don’t want a World Cup break. They are doing well and they did a great job against Forest.
“I think the game will end in a 1-1 draw, which is a good result for Arsenal.”
