Paul Merson has declared that it will be ‘unbelievable’ if Arsenal leapfrog Tottenham into third place in the Premier League table as the top four battle reaches its climax.
Mid-February saw Tottenham hold a ten point lead over their arch-rivals as the focus around Mauricio Pochettino’s side was on a potential title race as opposed to a fight for a spot in the Champions League places.

Merson, a former Arsenal midfielder, revelled in Spurs’ woes as he spoke about the race for the top four on Sky Sports’ The Debate Podcast, as quoted by HTC.
