Paul Merson Offers His Predicted Score Ahead Of Arsenal’s Clash With West Ham

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has made his prediction ahead of our Premier League clash with West Ham this weekend and he’s backing us to edge it at Upton Park.

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has made his prediction ahead of our Premier League clash with West Ham this weekend and he’s backing us to edge it at Upton Park.

The Gunners head in to the weekend action sitting 11 points adrift of league leaders Leicester City and four off Tottenham following last weekend’s impressive 4-0 demolition of Watford at the Emirates.

We do hold a game in hand over our rivals but with matches running out, we simply have to beat West Ham this weekend in order to keep alive our slim hopes of winning the title this season.

The Hammers won’t be an easy task though as they’re enjoying an excellent campaign and currently sit sixth in the table, just three points off the top four, so Slaven Bilic’s men are in desperate need of points themselves on Saturday.

It’s sure to be a tense game and former Arsenal winger Paul Merson believes that while it’s a difficult match to predict, he’s backing Arsene Wenger’s side to secure a vital 2-1 victory at Upton Park.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Merson said:

Both teams need to win. It’s a good game really because a draw is no good to either of them. If Arsenal think they are going to win the league then they need to win this and a victory is as important to West Ham if they are to get in the top four.

This is a hard one to call because West Ham are doing really well, but no one is better than Arsenal when playing without pressure.

PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2

We’ll have to wait and see whether Merson’s prediction proves accurate but I’d bite your hand off right now for a 2-1 win. This is arguably our second hardest game left this season, aside from the trip to Man City, so we have to keep the pressure on the top two by bringing home all three points on Saturday.

If you agree with Merse and think Arsenal will win this weekend, then….
