Paul Merson states his prediction for Watford v Arsenal

  • Paul Merson

His comments come after Merson took aim at the Frenchman by claiming the Gunners could win the Premier League if he was a bit more like Harry Redknapp.

And Merson pointed to one particular match at Portsmouth as evidence of Redknapp's understated tactical genius.

Defending In Numbers is a new Deezer Originals football podcast, created by Squawka.

Wenger's men responded with a goalless draw at defending champions Chelsea but doubts remain about whether Arsenal can challenge for the title this term.

And the French boss hit back with the response: "These debates that I hear are a joke, a farce".

"I tried to text Paul this morning, but he was busy at work".

When asked to comment on the 49-year-old Sky Sports pundit making a return to the game Wenger snapped: "We speak about professional football here".

"People say he's a wheeler-dealer and it's so disrespectful", he said on Sky's A League Of Their Own.

'Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with.

The World Cup victor is again available for selection but Arsenal legend Merson believes Arsene Wenger should take the extreme action of excluding him from the starting line-up on Saturday.

He thinks Arsenal would have won more trophies under Wenger if he was as astute as Redknapp is.

"If you have got talent you have had a result - and he has talent - but I have seen players with much less talent than him have a bigger impact on games, which can't be right".
