WATCH - Blimey… Paul Merson left embarrassed as FA Cup prediction goes horribly wrong
Paul Merson’s credentials as an unfathomed expert analyst of the game took a slight blow today as all three of his FA Cup predictions on Soccer Saturday fell flat in hilarious fashion.
Asked by host Jeff Stelling to give three sides from today’s round of 25 FA Cup third round fixtures that he would tip to lift the trophy in May, the former Arsenal winger firmly decided on Everton, Stoke and AFC Bournemouth.
“Give us three sides you’re putting your money on," said Stelling.
Everton lost 2-1 to Premier League champions Leicester City at Goodison Park, Stoke were defeated 2-0 away to Championship side Wolves and Eddie Howe’s Cherries were dumped out 3-0 away to League One minnows Millwall.
