Paul Merson makes bold score prediction for Arsenal vs Wolves

Wolves take on Arsenal in their final Premier League game of the 2022/23 season.

Wanderers are looking to finish the campaign positively, having already secured their safety earlier this month.

Just a few months ago, many Wolves fans were worried about the team needing to get a result in this game.

But thankfully it has not come to that, with Julen Lopetegui working his magic to get the points needed.

Wolves sit on 41 points, and a win over the Gunners could potentially take them into 12th. But that does depend on what Chelsea do tonight against Manchester United, and what they do on Sunday against Newcastle United.

Defeat for Wolves on Sunday could see the club slip down to 15th if other results go against them, which would be disappointing.

For Arsenal, there is nothing really to play for other than personal pride.

In the end their title challenge against Manchester City fell short. They will be finishing second no matter what.

But they’ll want to given their fans something to cheer at the Emirates.

Games between Wolves and Arsenal have been fairly spiky in recent times, so it could be a lively encounter.

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has made his score prediction ahead of the game. And he’s backing the Gunners to come through quite comfortably.

Predicting a 3-0 home win, he said (Sportskeeda): “Arsenal need to win and send the fans home well as it’s been a bad end to a season that promised so much just a few weeks ago. They absolutely have to beat Wolves and I think they’ll do so comfortably, so I’m going for a 3-0 win.”

Paul Merson’s score prediction for Arsenal vs Wolves is bold given Gunners’ poor form of late

Merson is sticking his neck out here.

In the last couple of months, Arsenal have looked a shadow of the team they were in the first two-thirds of the season.

They’ve won just two of their last eight games, and they were really poor against Forest last weekend.

But Wolves are also kind of limping to the end of the season, so there is potential for Arsenal to get some joy.

Wolves’ away form has been bad this season as well, so it will take a big effort to get any points here.

But Wolves do tend to raise their game against Big Six clubs, so perhaps there may be an upset.
