Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson is expecting Arsenal to come out comfortable winners when they face Everton tomorrow afternoon.
The Gunners know that anything other than a win will put pay to their slim chances of finishing in the top four, and Merson believes they will play with the shackles off at the Emirates:
“The pressure is off for Arsenal, they’ll win this one comfortably. Will that be enough for a top-four spot? Only time will tell.”
Merson has gone with a 3-0 win to Arsenal, which is probably a fair prediction, especially as Everton have now secured their top-flight status following their dramatic comeback win against Crystal Palace.
Whether it will be as straightforward as Merson is assuming it will be for Mikel Arteta’s side, we shall have to wait and see. The Toffees will be able to play with a lot more freedom now they don’t have to worry about relegation.
However, they are very poor at the back and, while there is a possibility that Everton could get on the scoresheet, you would back Arsenal to outgun them.
