Paul Merson believes that Arsenal could win the Premier League title if they win their upcoming three matches.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta has described Arsenal’s victory against Bournemouth as their most emotional moment.

The game saw Arsenal come from a 2-0 deficit to secure a crucial 3-2 win against the Cherries, with Reiss Nelson’s 97th-minute goal being the deciding factor. The outcome of this game may have significant consequences for the title race.


Arsenal’s lead over Manchester City at the top of the league remains at five points after their latest victory, while Manchester City also won their game against Newcastle with a score of 2-0. With 12 games left in the season, the Gunners are in a good position.

According to Sky Sports pundit and ex-Arsenal player Merson, the team’s chances of winning the championship have improved after their impressive comeback win, especially if they can win their next three league matches.

The team will play their next game against Fulham away from home on Sunday, which will be televised live on Sky Sports. After that, they have two home games against Crystal Palace and Leeds.

“I think they win the league,” Merson said on Soccer Saturday. “They just keep on going and don’t know when they’re beaten. It’s four [Premier League wins] on the trot and you’ve got to remember the roll they were on before they started winning those games.

“They went 1-0 down at Villa after 10 minutes when they hadn’t won for three games, had just been well beaten by Man City and they bounced back.

“They’ve been brilliant and the next three games will be defining for me. If they win them, I don’t see how they don’t win it.

“After Senesi scores [for Bournemouth’s second], you think the worst way out here is 2-2. Then [Thomas] Partey scores and [Benjamin] White scores, which was provided by Reiss Nelson. And what a goal it was from him.

“Bournemouth probably had the better chances at stages. They didn’t pick the right pass when they counter-attacked. They’ll be devastated in the dressing room.

“But what I like about Arsenal is they keep on going, they pen you in. When the ball goes in the box, there aren’t too many players in the box, they’re more all out of the box to keep them pressed in, then the ball comes out and they go again. It was relentless.”
