Paul Merson's Premier League predictions - Round Four Paul Merson says Man Utd will beat QPR, Liverpool might edge Villa and Arsenal will beat Man City.

                      Man Utd v QPR, 3.30pm, Sunday


If you’re a neutral then Man United are the team to watch this season. They will let in goals because they’re nowhere near good enough at the back, but they could be as good as anybody going forward if all the players click. Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao are both out-and-out centre-forwards and like playing up front on their own, so if he plays them both you might see them running into each other. Then you’ve got Wayne Rooney, Angel di Maria and Juan Mata – can you play all three of them? Louis van Gaal is getting paid a lot of money to make those decisions, but I do wonder why they sold Danny Welbeck for £16m when they’re buying wing-backs for £30m?
I think this is the ideal game for the new players to come in, though. QPR had a massive result against Sunderland and if they can come away with a respectable score they’ll be happy. They will set themselves up to be hard to beat, but I don’t think they’ve got the ammunition to score in this game.
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0
