Paul Merson Criticized for Suggesting Sky Sports Could Impact Premier League Title Race

The Arsenal legend expressed his belief that his former side is at a disadvantage by continuing to play after their title rivals, Manchester City and Liverpool. He highlighted that last season, Man City consistently played their matches before Arsenal, which he felt put them at a disadvantage. He also mentioned that rival fans had disregarded his observations at the time.

The legend emphasized his preference to play first in a title race and to secure three points before watching other teams play. The statement included a light-hearted joke and a reference to Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, who is known to dislike early Saturday kick-offs. Arsenal currently trails behind league leaders Liverpool by two points, but are level on 52 points with Manchester City.

They have played one more game than City, the defending champions under Pep Guardiola. This weekend, Arsenal will play after Liverpool, who have an early kick-off at 12:30pm. City will host Chelsea in the evening kick-off.
