Paul Merson states his prediction for Newcastle United vs Arsenal

Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming clash between Newcastle United and Arsenal. 

The Magpies are enjoying the season, sitting in 3rd place in the Premier League and being too close to securing a Champions League football for the next season. The Gunners, meanwhile, have already booked their place in the European top competition, however, are eager to finish the term as the leaders of England's top division. 

Mikel Arteta's side would need only a victory to compete with Manchester City for the league title, however, Merson still believes the two teams will share points as St. James' Park when they face each other on Sunday. 

"This could be the game that finishes Arsenal off in the Premier League title race, as Newcastle United are in incredible form. Eddie Howe and co have been unbelievable at home this season and are well-positioned to secure a place in the UEFA Champions League next season," the pundit said on Sportskeeda

"If Arsenal win this, I think the title race could be back on, as Manchester City have a bunch of interesting games coming up. Both Arsenal and Newcastle have played fantastic football this season and this will be a great contest, but unfortunately, I can't see Arsenal winning this one. The pressure will be on them and the Magpies are a tough nut to crack at St. James' Park, so I think this game will finish 1-1," he added.
