Pundit gives honest Manchester United prediction ahead of Arsenal clash

Fabrizio Romano names surprise new suitor in Jordan Henderson transfer race following Newcastle links

Paul Merson does not hold high hopes for Manchester United in their clash against Arsenal on Sunday after their disastrous result at the start of the week.

Erik ten Hag’s were humbled at Selhurst Park on Monday night in arguably their most disappointing result of the season so far, losing 4-0 against a struggling Palace side.

Currently sitting eighth in the table, the Red Devils are on course for their worst-ever finish in Premier League history after Chelsea leapfrogged them in the standings.

Although they hold a game in hand over the Blues, they must try to stop Mikel Arteta’s title-challenging Gunners at Old Trafford, an unenviable task with their last away defeat occurring on New Year’s Eve when they shockingly lost at Craven Cottage.

Speaking to Sportskeeda in the build-up to the game, former Arsenal star Merson gave his prediction for the contest, not holding out too much hope for Ten Hag’s men.

“Manchester United, I couldn’t believe what I was watching against Crystal Palace.” He said.

“It was an absolutely shocking performance and if they play like that against Arsenal, they’ll concede four or five goals again.”

After yet another dominating performance from Manchester City on Saturday, all eyes turn to Arsenal with only a win good enough to keep them in the title race.
