Liverpool v Tottenham: Sky pundit says Reds are under major pressure

Paul Merson reckons Liverpool will be under major pressure against Tottenham but will win Sunday’s game.

Liverpool are vying with Manchester City for the Premier League title while Spurs are battling for a top four finish.

And pundit Merson has predicted a 2-1 win for the Reds.

In his predictions for Sky Sports, the former Arsenal and England forward said: “The pressure is going to be on Liverpool, draws are no good with Manchester City in front.

“It’s going to be a tight, entertaining game with Liverpool needing to win adding another layer – if Liverpool are drawing with 20 minutes to go they have to go for it.

“But I think they will get the job done, cranking up the pressure on Spurs in the race for the top four.”

Merson also predicted a 3-1 win for his former club Arsenal against Newcastle but seemingly does not rate the Gunners’ chances of securing a top-four finish.

“Newcastle are a dangerous side; they’ve been really good recently, are hard to beat and have a couple of match-winners in their team,” he said.

“But these are the kind of matches Arsenal finish off. If Liverpool had Arsenal’s remaining fixtures they would win the league, but you just know that Arsenal won’t win all of these games and that’s why they are not a shoo-in for the top four.”
