Paul Merson has said on Sky Sports News (1:34pm, October 16, 2021) that Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal can finish above Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United.

The Sky Sports pundit believes that Arsenal can break into the Premier League top four this season.

The former Arsenal star has said that the Gunners could displace United in the Champions League places.

Merson said on Sky Sports News (1:34pm, October 16, 2021): “Man United. If there was anybody, yeah I do. I do.”

Could Arsenal knock Manchester United off?

United have a very good squad.

Just look at some of the players they have.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and David de Gea all are world-class footballers.

Now, of course, Arsenal have some good players, but we do not think that most of them are at the level of their United counterparts.

Not yet anyway.

In football anything is possible, and Arsenal are indeed playing well at the moment.

However, United have a better squad depth, and it would come as a surprise if they fail to finish in the Premier League top four. 

The Red Devils are actually aiming to win the Premier League title this season.

Arsenal would do well to get into the Europa League next season.
