Former Arsenal midfielder, Paul Merson has said Liverpool’s title ambitions could be over in one week.

The Reds went five points clear at the top of the table on Sunday, following a 4-0 victory at Bournemouth.

But Merson is not convinced about their chances of winning the title.

He pointed to the back-to-back fixtures they will have against Chelsea and Arsenal in February.

“It could all be over for Liverpool in the title race in one week. They play Chelsea at home – you have no idea which Chelsea is going to turn up. They can play, so that’s a hard game.

“Then they go Arsenal away, and if it goes like the way the FA Cup game went then Arsenal will win that game. Before you know it, it’s all over for Liverpool,” Merson told Sky Sports.
