Former Arsenal player Paul Merson has said that the Gunners' Premier League trip to Chelsea on Wednesday could make or break their top-four hopes.

After a poor start to the new year, Mikel Arteta's men went on a decent run of games, making them favourites for the fourth spot, ahead of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, losses in their last three games mean the Gunners face a battle to finish in the top four. The Chelsea assignment is being seen as a 'make-or-break week for Arsenal' by former Gunners star Paul Merson.

He feels the Gunners should look to get a win at Stamford Bridge, given the stakes involved. In a column for Sky Sports, Merson wrote :

"Arsenal are still in the top-four race. This isn't a big game for Chelsea in terms of the league. Third is all but wrapped up for Thomas Tuchel's side. They are in the top four now."

"If Arsenal go out and show something, they've got every chance at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have had a hard week after their Champions League exploits and their FA Cup semi-final win. It might be a game where Tuchel rests a few players, and the Gunners may just get a bit lucky."
