'I do think': Gary Neville has just given his very latest Arsenal title prediction
Gary Neville has refused to back down over his stance on Arsenal and their title chances, albeit he did concede he has been so impressed.
Neville has, so far, refused to say Arsenal will win the title. Despite sitting five points above City right now, Neville has maintained that the Manchester club will win the title with ease in the end.
However, speaking tonight on his Podcast for Sky, Neville says he’s sticking to his guns and believes Arsenal still won’t win the title.
“I said last week I thought City would win the title by 10-15 points and I’m going to hang in there with that prediction,” Neville said on his Podcast.
“Arsenal fans are killing me right now. I think they’re absolutely fantastic. They’re the best team in the league in the first 14 games by a mile. I was there in the first game and that first 25 minutes was electrifying between those front players, and they’ve maintained that. They’re really really good at the moment. They’ve got spirit, good football. I like what Jesus does. We won titles without players scoring 20-25 goals. Sometimes we had players not passing 15 goals. And what Jesus has done up front there is make the team better.
“I don’t think they’ll win the title, I think City will. I do think they’ll get into the top four. But I still think it will be interesting in February/March where they end up. I’ll say it time and time again until they prove me wrong. But, they’re the best team in the league now, the most consistent team.”
TBR’s View: Arsenal will love proving Neville wrong
It’s not that Gary Neville isn’t showing any confidence in Arsenal. It’s more the fact he – like us – is so used to seeing Manchester City dominate that it’s hard to see past them.
However, Brentford showed the blueprint yesterday. Ivan Toney dominated them and if more teams can do that, then Arsenal’s chances will keep on increasing.
Neville would probably be happy to see Arsenal prove him wrong. But for now, the Gunners won’t care and in the end, they’ll love to simply prove the Sky man wrong.
