Merson believes Mikel Arteta’s men can defeat the Premier League champions because the Gunners are a “cup team”.

“The Community Shield is a benchmark for Arsenal to see how far behind Liverpool they still are,” Merson told Starsport.

“They could beat Liverpool and win the game. Of course, they could. But that’s what Arsenal are a cup team.

“On their day they can beat anybody. But how often is their day? Over 38 games it is Liverpool who are consistent. That is what Arsenal need to find. Consistency.
