Paul Merson slams ‘bad VAR’ decisions in ‘shocking’ score prediction for Arsenal v Wolves

Paul Merson has criticized VAR as he predicts Wolves’ Premier League match against Arsenal this Saturday.

Wolves will try to return to winning ways against Arsenal this weekend, but the league leaders could prove a difficult assignment.

This comes after the Molineux club’s 3-2 setback to Fulham on Monday. Although they were eventually unlucky in that game, a succession of harsh refereeing decisions proved expensive.

Wolves will be confident going into the game against a top-four team after recent victories over Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, they will be severely lacking in midfield with both Mario Lemina and Joao Gomes suspended.

Paul Merson has predicted the weekend’s slate of games.

Merson on Arsenal v Wolves

Paul Merson predicted Wolves’ trip to The Emirates in his weekly SportsKeeda predictions post.
He began by praising Wolves before criticizing VAR: “Wolves should be a lot higher up the Premier League table if it weren’t for bad VAR decisions.”

Merson went on to say that Arsenal should be weary of this game, saying, “If I were an Arsenal fan, I’d be happy just to win this difficult game and get it out of the way.” Gary O’Neil’s team is difficult to play against.”

When looking at Arsenal, Merson identified Declan Rice as the dangerman, which is even more concerning given Wolves’ midfield suspensions.

“However, Arsenal has enough quality to beat them.”
Declan Rice has been absolutely brilliant for Arsenal. He will be key here again.

“This will be a hard-fought game but I’m going to go with Arsenal here.”

He ended with a prediction of Arsenal winning 3-1, but that won’t deter any Wolves fan from believing three points is possible.

Wolves can beat Arsenal, but one man needs to be on top form


Liverpool leave it late to punish wasteful Wolves


Jean-Ricner Bellegarde will be crucial if Wolves are to defeat Arsenal. He demonstrated his ability to pick up the ball deep and drive ahead against the Spurs.

With both starting midfielders missing, Bellegarde will be critical in controlling the ball and transitioning from defense to attack.

Bellegarde has also demonstrated outstanding creativity and finishing in recent games, most notably his wondergoal against Sheffield United.

However, he is our pick to be Wolves’ important player.
