Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Paul Merson has his say on Chelsea vs Arsenal which will be played on Saturday.

According to the former player it will be crucial, for both teams, scoring the first goal of the game: “It’s all about the first goal”. – Merson wrote – “If Arsenal score first you will watch and think ‘wow, they look decent’. They will be confident and they have good players who look decent when they are winning. But when they are losing too many of them just go completely and utterly missing. The shape goes out of the window and if they let in the first goal it could be anything.”
