"That's an absolute no-go, even though Man United need him more than any player."
Paul Merson believes Frank Lampard is to blame for Antonio Rudiger deciding to leave Chelsea after the way he "treated" the defender.
"It wouldn't make a difference. They have no chance of winning the Premier League title now."
"I didn't see this Leeds collapse coming. I didn't. They are completely and utterly in panic mode."
"He's quick and direct and if he loses the ball he works his socks off to get it back. Suarez was the same. He ticks every box."
Paul Merson claims Mikel Arteta's biggest "flaw" is that he "wants to be Pep Guardiola" after Arsenal lost 3-0 against Tottenham.
"This affects them hugely now. I don't know how they recover against Newcastle this weekend."
"So they should move on. And when he leaves, I'm intrigued to see what his teammates say."
"I think the way Liverpool play suits Tottenham as Antonio Conte wants teams to come at them."
Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson insists that Chelsea "haven’t got much choice" but to keep Romelu Lukaku at the club for next season.
Paul Merson has made his prediction for Monday night’s game at Old Trafford…
"Antonio Rudiger is the one player Chelsea couldn't afford to lose, but he clearly didn't love the club enough to stay."
"I think that’s a lot. He’s played 36 times for City this season. And started a lot of big, big games."
"They cannot drop points here. Liverpool must win this game because a draw is no good."
"They still need a midfield player who can sit in front of the back four and pick a pass. Arteta did that beautifully."
"PSG could go for him and make him their short-term replacement for Kylian Mbappe"
"He is a better finisher than Alexandre Lacazette and should score more goals, so I'd leave him in there."
"They weren’t and they aren’t good enough to win their last eight games each."
"But look where they are. It was a bad signing, 100%.”
Merson has predicted that Liverpool and Man City will meet in this season's Champions League final.
Liverpool and Man City face off at Wembley on Saturday in a huge FA Cup semi-final.
"I still feel Arsenal are in it because Tottenham have still got a Tottenham in them."
"It needs to stop sooner rather than later, otherwise this club is just going to fizzle out from being the biggest in the world."
Tottenham have come alive in recent weeks under Antonio Conte...
"I think this game will end 2-2, meaning the two sides will carry on just as they did."
"Everton's next few games are absolutely atrocious and I think they'll probably get relegated if they lose this."
"You feel for these players. No matter how much you train, it's not the same as playing."
"When he doesn't turn up at Burnley away, they get beaten. Tottenham are a one-man team."
“I am completely and utterly shocked. I cannot believe what is happening. Everything is just being done off the cuff."
"You'd get him a bit cheaper and he's a better player now than he was when they tried before."
