Liverpool face Tottenham in the Premier League, a match they need to win in order to keep up with Manchester City in the battle for the title.
Merson told Sky Sports: ”The pressure is going to be on Liverpool, draws are no good with Manchester City in front. It’s going to be a tight, entertaining game with Liverpool needing to win adding another layer – if Liverpool are drawing with 20 minutes to go they have to go for it.
“But I think they will get the job done, cranking up the pressure on Spurs in the race for the top four.”
Merson predicts a 2-1 win to Liverpool at home against Tottenham on Sunday.
