Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming clash between Manchester City and Arsenal.
The two sides are set to face each other in the Premier League on Wednesday, April 26, 2023. The race for winning the league title is on, with the Gunners now leading the table, five points ahead of the Citizens.
The midweek game will be vital for the two clubs, and Merson predicts them to share points at Etihad Stadium, playing a 1 - 1 draw.
"Arsenal have gone and tried to win every match this season, but you can't go to Man City and play gung-ho football. The season might catch up with City, and Pep Guardiola has already said that they're tired. When he starts saying it, the players start believing it." the pundit said on Sportskeeda.
"If this game ends in a draw, Manchester City will have to win both their games in hand to take the lead. It's a bit like when you're 5-3 down in tennis, and you need to hold your serve and make sure you don't break. Man City have been outstanding, but people do get nervous and the pressure can get to them," he added.
