Paul Merson believes the Liverpool FC “juggernaut will roll on” against Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening.

The Merseyside outfit have managed to build some impressive momentum in the Premier League title race following five successive victories.

Liverpool FC have beaten Everton, Burnley, Bournemouth, Manchester United and Wolves before a 4-0 win against Newcastle United on Boxing Day.

The Reds have only conceded seven times in 19 games in the Premier League this term, while Alisson Becker has kept 12 clean sheets in the top flight.

Tottenham are in second place and six points behind Liverpool FC, while defending champions Manchester City are a further point adrift.

Spurs will be hoping their north London rivals can do them a big favour and deny Liverpool FC a seventh successive Premier League victory on Sunday.

However, Arsenal have failed to secure a win at Anfield in their last five visits following two draws and three losses.

Liverpool FC were 4-0 winners against Arsenal in their last meeting at Anfield when Mohamed Salah scored a sensational wonder goal.

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson believes Liverpool FC will secure a 3-0 win against Unai Emery’s side at Anfield on Saturday evening.

“The juggernaut will role on here,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“Even when they play games like the other day against Newcastle they still don’t let in a goal. Arsenal’s strengths are scoring goals, but they are coming up against a really, really good defence.

“Look at Man Utd the other day, they are strolling at 3-0 and end up winning 3-1 – it counts in the end.

“This Liverpool team are just getting clean sheet after clean sheet. Arsenal’s Achilles’ heel is at the back, and with Liverpool’s firepower they will score goals.

“Arsenal struggled at Brighton and were fortunate on many occasion in the unbeaten run – you cannot keep going behind in games and expect to be winning football matches all the time. Arsenal are where I expect them to be.”

Liverpool FC are 16 points better off than they were at the same point last season to highlight their remarkable improvement.
