“Messy”: Paul Merson now makes Manchester City claim ahead of Sunday’s clash against Manchester United

Paul Merson has now shared his predictions ahead of the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Manchester City on Sunday.

The 55-year-old was writing in his column for Sports Keeda.

So, what did Paul Merson say about Manchester City and Manchester United? Let’s take a look…

What’s the story?

Well, the Sky Sports pundit thinks Erik ten Hag could be on the end of a “messy” scoreline at Old Trafford on Sunday when Pep Guardiola’s treble winners come to visit.

Merson said: “Manchester United’s results have papered over their cracks in recent weeks, I give them absolutely no chance against Manchester City. The Citizens will have the lion’s share of possession and United will look to hit on the break, which is how I see the game being played out.

“The Red Devils are going to get well beaten soon, so they need to be careful against City to avoid a messy scoreline.”
