Sky Sports pundit has named his team of the season so far and he not included the Premier League top scorer Mo Salah.
In fact, Liverpool forward Salah – who has scored 14 Premier League goals this season – does not even merit a mention from Merson.
“My wide players are obvious choices again in Sane and Sterling,” says Merson.
“When you look at how much Sterling has improved under Guardiola it is incredible, especially when you compare to how little Theo Walcott has developed at Arsenal from a similar young talent.”
So he has picked Sterling just to have a pop at Arsene Wenger and Theo Walcott?
His team in full: De Gea; Walker, Tarkowski, Mee, Alonso; De Bruyne, Fernandinho; Sane, Silva, Sterling; Kane
