Liverpool Will Rip Arsenal”
Liverpool will “rip Arsenal to shreds”, according to former Gunners star Paul Merson, with the Gunners “very fortunate” to find themselves on a 10-game winning run.
Unai Emery’s side have offered a perfect response to opening their 2018-19 campaign with back-to-back defeats, with Premier League, Carabao Cup and Europa League successes helping to rebuild confidence and raise expectations.
It has been suggested that Arsenal, who slipped out of the top four towards the end of Arsene Wenger’s reign, could force their way back into title contention this term, so impressive have they been of late.
Merson, though, believes that a return to Champions League competition represents the height of their ambition, with a side that can look like “the Harlem Globetrotters” on their day still considered to lack the consistency and talent to compete with the very best.
