Paul Merson has warned Manchester United that Arsenal are capable of going “crash, bang, wallop” against any Premier League team at the Emirates Stadium ahead of their top-four clash on Saturday evening.

The Gunners have won their last three Premier League games since a disappointing 3-1 loss to leaders Manchester City in their last game before the international break.

Arsenal produced their best performance of the 2017-18 season in a 2-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium at the start of November thanks to goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez.

The FA Cup holders were fortunate to win 1-0 at Burnley thanks to Sanchez’s added-time winner from the penalty spot but Arsenal were deserved 5-0 winners against promoted side Huddersfield Town at The Emirates mid-week.

Arsenal have won their last 13 games at home including a 2-0 victory over Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United back in May, although the Red Devils had their eye on their Europa League final clash against Dutch giants Ajax.

Former Gunners midfielder Merson warned Manchester United about Arsenal’s devastating home form ahead of their top-four clash in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

“Arsenal’s home record is frightening. They can go ‘crash, bang, wallop’ against anyone and the game is over in 10 minutes – like they did against Huddersfield,” Merson told Sky Sports.

Arsenal won the FA Cup for the third time in four seasons last term thanks to a 2-1 win over Premier League champions Chelsea.
