Arsenal are back in the race for the Premier League title following wins over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea FC. Paul Merson anticipates one of Mikel Arteta’s star players to be nominated for the Player of the Season award in England’s top flight.

The victory against Chelsea on Tuesday evening has propelled the Gunners further ahead at the top of the table, although second-placed City have played two fewer games.

Despite the season’s outcome, Arsenal’s progress under Arteta remains evident, signaling a promising future for the club.

Last summer, Arsenal made a significant investment by acquiring Declan Rice from West Ham United for a reported fee of £105 million. The impact of the England midfielder on the team has been immense, with his performances justifying his hefty price tag.

Paul Merson, in his analysis on Sportskeeda, praised Chelsea’s Cole Palmer for his impressive displays this season. He endorsed Palmer as a contender for the Player of the Season award alongside Declan Rice, Virgil van Dijk, and Phil Foden, among others.

Merson highlighted Rice’s exceptional contributions to Arsenal, emphasising his intelligence and skill on the field. Despite the hefty transfer fee, Rice has seamlessly integrated into the team, garnering praise from fans and pundits alike.

“He (Palmer) is such an intelligent footballer,” said Merson. “And should be in contention to win the Player of the Season award alongside the likes of Declan Rice, Virgil van Dijk, and Phil Foden, among others.”
