Paul Merson states his prediction for Arsenal v Hull

Paul Merson looks ahead to Arsenal's clash with Hull City in the Premier League on Saturday...

Paul Merson is tipping Arsenal to bounce back to winning ways in the Premier League by beating Hull City 3-0 at The Emirates on Saturday lunchtime.

The Gunners head into the game looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of back to back defeats at the hands of Chelsea and Watford.

Those results have left Arsenal 12 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea as they look to haul themselves back into the title race.

Arsenal have dropped down to fourth place as they look to try and seal a place in the Champions League for next season.

Merson is backing Arsenal not to have any problems against the Tigers and is tipping the Gunners to claim all three points at The Emirates on Saturday.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Merson said: “This is typical Arsenal. They will win 3-0, everything will be great again and Arsene Wenger will be the best manager in the world.

“The pressure is on, though, as if they lose this game I don’t see how he can keep his job. It would be that toxic that I couldn’t see him staying. Hull are doing very well but Arsenal tend to beat these teams.”
