It would be an understatement to describe Arsenal’s current predicament as arduous. Wenger’s boys currently sit on the third spot, languishing 9 points behind table toppers Chelsea.
If this wasn’t enough, the Gunners will now have to face an inevitable uphill task at Stamford Bridge, which has become a fortress of sorts for the mighty Blues juggernaut.
Although it would be wrong to completely write off Arsenal before the Chelsea game, it seems Paul Merson has already made up his mind.
Based on Arsenal’s shocking 2-1 home defeat against Watford, Merson used some harsh words and predicted a big 3-1 victory for the Chelsea on Saturday.
But since the track record of former Gunner turned pundit is so extraordinarily bad, Arsenal fans took to social media feeling a little better about the game than before.
