Chelsea will clash with Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday evening at the Wembley Stadium.
Chelsea head to the game following a 2-0 win over Lille in the Champions League.
Liverpool, on the other hand, defeated Leeds United 6-0 in the Premier League.
But Merson believes both teams will play a 2-2 draw and will go all the way to a tense penalty shootout.
“When I look at the two teams and how they have performed this season, I think this could be an absolute humdinger of a game with lots of goals,” Merson told Sportskeeda.
“Predicting a game like this is an impossible task, but I’m going for a 2-2 draw! As for penalties? Flip a coin because there’s absolutely no one on the planet who can predict which one of these two sides would prevail in such a situation.”
