Paul Merson

Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has predicted some of the Premier League match-day 16 fixtures.

Chelsea will host Leeds United on Saturday evening at Stamford Bridge, while Liverpool will tackle Aston Villa at Anfield. Norwich City will face Manchester United at home on Saturday evening, while Arsenal will clash with Southampton at Emirates Stadium.

Manchester City will host Wolves on Saturday afternoon at Etihad.

Providing his predictions, Merson told Sportskeeda: “I don’t see Wolves scoring a single goal against Manchester City. They can hold on for quite a bit and have been tight at the back, but they just aren’t able to find the back of the net. I thought Wolves did very well against Liverpool last week, but they’ve got to take their chances when they push forward.

Antonio Rudiger has been offered a whopping £400,000-a-week deal to leave Chelsea.

The German defender is entering the final months of his current deal with the Blues and will be free to talk and reach contract agreement with foreign clubs from next month onwards.

Thomas Tuchel’s side had hoped to persuade the Germany international to extend his stay, but are increasingly resigned to losing him.

Chelsea have made an offer believed to be worth around £140,000-a-week but the defender felt he deserved a much bigger salary on par with the club’s highest earners.
