Reports are out claiming that Arsenal hero Paul Merson rates Crystal Palace’s squad ahead of Liverpool and Tottenham.
The pundit has predicted how he thinks the league table will look at the end of the season – and thinks the Eagles will finish an incredible fifth and claim a place in Europe.
He told Sky Sports: “I like Crystal Palace and if they stay fit as a team, they won’t be a million miles off.
“They’re not in Europe and they’ve got very good players.
“People are going to say they won’t be up there because they’re not Tottenham or Liverpool, but half of their players would get into Tottenham or Liverpool’s team.”
