Arsenal legend Paul Merson takes a swipe at the Gunners

- Arsenal legend Paul Merson thinks the Gunners' recent winning run won't last

- They have won their last six Premier League games after defeats against Man City and Chelsea

- But 50-year-old Merson is not convinced with the fine form of Unai Emery's men

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has taken a swipe at his former club despite their recent impressive performance winning their last six Premier League games.

Although the Gunners started their campaign this season with two straight defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea, but they found their rhythms after defeat against the Blues.

But former Arsenal star Paul Merson does not think the Gunners' current form can last claiming that the North London club are in for a drubbing soon.

“Sooner or later, they will be on the end of a big score. Defensively they are all over the place.

"The one thing that gets them out of trouble is that they’re always going to score goals.

"But defensively, they are just not good enough,'' the 50-year-old who is now a television pundit explained according to UK Sun.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will not be playing this weekend because of the international break, and their next game will be at home against former Premier League champions Leicester City.

The Gunners are currently occupying fourth position on the Premier League standings with 18 points after eight games played.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Manchester United legend Michael Carrick revealed how his mega move to Arsenal in 2004 was blocked by Spanish football star Cesc Fabregas who now plays for Chelsea.

Carrick was playing for West Ham United then and he was a target for Frenchman Arsene Wenger who was ready to bring him to the North London club.

But Cesc Fabregas' superb display for Arsenal in the Community Shield against Manchester United that year made Michael Carrick's move to the Gunners to collapse.
