Paul Merson has made a score prediction for Arsenal's next Premier League game which will hold on New Year's Day.

The Gunners will host Sam Allardyce's Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday and having secured victory in their last against West Brom, they will be on high morale.

They currently sit in fourth place, a point above Tottenham Hotspur, two more than Manchester United and nine behind league leaders, Chelsea.

A win is all they will be going for on that day and even though Merson is of the opinion that it won't come easy, he still expects them to win.

I worry for Arsenal. They fall over the line against West Brom, thanks to Olivier Giroud. But the good thing I like about them, if they’re struggling, they put the ball into the box – unlike the last few years when they played it around like a power play in ice hockey, going from side to side.
At least they put it in for Giroud and have a Plan B. But I see Palace causing them major problems, Arsenal won’t be able to live with Christian Benteke and they have pace as well.
It will take Sam Allardyce a while to get used to Palace, but two away games in a row is perfect because he doesn’t have the pressure of having to win a match. 

Sam is someone who will win, lose, draw, win, lose, draw, and before you know it, they’ll be out of trouble. For me, this is his biggest job in club football so far. It’s a great job, especially with the calibre of players he has at his disposal. He can’t believe his luck. 
Arsenal have to win. Look at the table. They lose two games on the trot and they’re fighting for fourth, and they were 1-0 up in the first one they lost, about to go top of the league. Draws are just no good anymore, because these teams are ruthless and will run away with it.
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-2
The positive from this prediction is that Arsenal will escape with all three points and score three goals but conceding two goals in that encounter will not be a good one for them.
