Paul Merson: Soft Spurs will be an easy win for Arsenal!

Former Gunner believes it will be an easy day's work for the home team when Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal will be able to do what they did to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon what they accomplished against Aston Villa last weekend.

That is the opinion of Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson, who anticipates an "easy" 3-0 victory for his former club.

The Gunners have experienced stuttering form this month with a spirited 2-2 draw with Manchester City and a 3-0 rout over Villa offset by a 2-0 hammering defeat dished out by Borussia Dortmund and a 2-1 reverse sustained against Southampton.

Regardless, Merson boldly proclaimed: "I don’t see anything but an easy Arsenal win."

He added: "I just don’t think Tottenham are very good. Seriously, they got beaten at home to West Brom last week and when Sky Sports showed the highlights, the best Spurs chance was a pass going through and Emmanuel Adebayor getting tackled.

"They didn’t have any good shots and I’m not just saying it, I honestly think this will be an easy win for Arsenal.

"Spurs look very soft and haven’t got anyone who will go there and kick Arsenal off the park. If the game is “you-pass-we-pass” I don’t see how they can stay with Arsenal.

"Playing Mesut Ozil behind Danny Welbeck worked a treat at Villa and I expect more of the same. I’ll say 3-0 to Arsenal – and that’s being kind!"
