Arsenal have sunk beneath the waves in the Premier League title race in the past ten days, with back-to-back defeats against Watford and Chelsea ending any slight hopes of the Gunners finally putting an end to their long wait for another league crown.
Things don’t get any easier this weekend as they face a Hull side who have been revitalised in recent weeks, drawing with Manchester United at Old Trafford and sensationally beating Liverpool last weekend. Under the guidance of Marco Silva, the Tigers are roaring.
That raises the pressure for Arsenal, who also face the impending challenge of a trip to face Bayern Munich next week, but Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson is tipping the Gunners to blow Hull away.
“This is typical Arsenal. They will win 3-0, everything will be great again and Arsene Wenger will be the best manager in the world. The pressure is on, though, as if they lose this game I don’t see how he can keep his job. It would be that toxic that I couldn’t see him staying. Hull are doing very well but Arsenal tend to beat these teams.”
Predicting a comfortable 3-0 win that would put Arsenal on the straight and narrow again, a victory here would ease the pressure off the Gunners and a positive result is desperately needed if they are to keep their spot in the top-four.
