Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has expressed concerns over two Gunners’ players, Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah.

Merson also gave a new verdict on the Premier League title race this season.

Liverpool currently sit top of the Premier League table on 48 points.

The Reds are ahead of Manchester City, Arsenal and Aston Villa in the standings.

“I think Arsenal are still in the title race,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“They had a big result the other day and they are still there and thereabouts, so you have to put them in the equation.

“But Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah won’t score as many goals between them as Salah – and he is on the right wing. That is a massive advantage for Liverpool, who will be in the race for a long time if they keep playing as they are.”

He added, “I have always said Liverpool will be there at the end of the season. They just have loads of forwards – five of them in fact – and they all score goals.

“I won’t say Liverpool are title favourites though. [Man] City can just churn, churn and churn out wins. They can go 10 games without losing, easily. Look at them now, they’ve won eight out of their last nine matches [in all competitions].

“Their squad is just too big. They have had one of Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne out since the start of the season and they are still there.

“The difference between City, Liverpool and Arsenal is City can go for 10 wins in a row and nobody will pay any attention to it. If Liverpool and Arsenal do it, it’s a big thing.”
