Arsenal suffered a 2-0 defeat to on the opening weekend of the season last week and the Gunners could continue to struggle.

That is according to former Arsenal defender Paul Merson, who told¬†Sky Sports¬†he was not surprised by the loss to the defending champions last week and tipped Chelsea to emerge as victors in Saturday’s London derby.

Arsenal have not won a match at since their famous 5-3 victory in 2011, where scored a hat-trick, and the long wait for bragging rights in west London will continue according to Merson as he has predicted a 2-1 victory for the Blues.

“Chelsea had a great result and Arsenal’s was disappointing. I say disappointing but I don’t know what everybody was expecting? That a new manager was going to come in and they’d wipe the floor with Man City?

“I’ll go with Chelsea, 2-1, I think they’ll just have too much for Arsenal.”
