Unai Emery warned Arsenal will be ripped to shreds by Liverpool
Paul Merson has sent Unai Emery a warning over Arsenals recent run and says the Gunners will be ripped to shreds by Liverpool.
The Gunners have won ten games in a row in all competitions to climb to fourth in the Premier League.
They are also in control of their Europa League group and can pull clear at the top of the table when they face Sporting CP on Thursday evening.
But Arsenal hero Merson is not getting carried away by his former clubs run and says he will still be amazed if they finish in the top four.
He told talkSPORT: They havent played anybody yet! If they finish in the top four theyve pulled up trees.
Theyve done well to win ten games on the trot, dont get me wrong.
But when they come up against Tottenham and Liverpool, and especially Liverpool at the Emirates, I would be shocked if Liverpool didnt win by three clear goals.
They will rip Arsenal to shreds.
Im scratching my head, because Arsenal have won ten games in a row and in half of those games they could have been behind by so many in the first half.
But when they get going in the second half, when everything is rolling, then theyre the Harlem Globetrotters.
I mean look at Mesut Ozil, he was phenomenal. If he played like that every week, hed be the best player in the world.
So no, I cant buy into it. I think theyve been very, very fortunate.
They havent played anybody yet, and you cant play like this against teams like Liverpool.
