The Gunners won 1-0 at Newcastle United thanks to a second-half goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Both Cole and Merson agree their former sides will not be challenging for the title this season.
“It’s crazy how we’re talking about finishing in the top four at the start of seasons,” Cole said on The Debate.
“Man United are going to finish in there.
“If Spurs lose Eriksen, they’ll struggle.”
However, he has been impressed by Arsenal’s summer transfer business.
“I don’t think Man United [will get in the top four],” Merson said.
“I think Arsenal will pip Man United.
Arsenal are next in action on Saturday when they host Burnley (12.30pm).
United are away to Wolves the following Monday (8pm).
