Merson: Arsenal are going to get a hammering

Grant SmithOct 10, 2018

With Arsenal heading into the global break on the back of a positive run of results there is talk they could now finish back in the top four - if not challenge for the title - having missed out on Champions League football for the last two seasons.

They sit on 18 points after eight games, just two behind leaders Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool with the fixture against the latter on November 03 already looking like a tasty matchup.

Despite their impressive run of results though, Merson sees a big gap between Arsenal and the teams above them due to their lack of stability at the back.

The midfielder was only on the bench against Fulham, but came on to score a sumptuous backheel from a swift counter-attack, before setting away Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to make it 5-1.

Arsenal have reportedly withdrawn their contract offer for the Welsh global who has been at the club since 2008. How many of us really think through our pre-work routine in the morning for instance? "We've started doing it recently this season so it will help us adjust to that in our training session. We have worked and knew we could go forward so everything is better now".

"The team spirit is good, of course when you win it is better".

Aubameyang's arrival cast doubt on Lacazette's future at the club but the pair have clicked on and off the pitch, mustering 11 goals between them this season.

"It is good", Lacazette said of his relationship with Aubameyang.

"I believe in us, we believe in our process but also we must keep taking confidence". We will enjoy it, we are working well and we want to continue like this.

"Riyad feels deflated, he feels he has let us down", he said.
