Gary Neville thinks that as a result of Man City’s error, Arsenal will win the Premier League championship.
Gary Neville is ‘encouraged’ by Manchester City’s gaffe on Saturday and thinks Arsenal will win the Premier League this year.
After being eliminated by Newcastle United from the Carabao Cup, Pep Guardiola’s team suffered a second straight loss as they were downed 2-1 by Wolves.
The Arsenals, meanwhile, defeated AFC Bournemouth 4-0 and are now only one point behind City after seven games.
For the first time since 2004, Mikel Arteta’s squad came agonizingly close to winning the Premier League the previous season. They held the top spot in the standings for 248 days, which is a record for a club that finished second in the English top division.
In the end, City prevailed, completing a historic triple, giving Guardiola’s team five out of the previous six Premier League titles.
Neville declares on his podcast that he has Arsenal winning the league this year.
That post-triple emotion would have been extremely draining on those City players and personnel, according to them.
Even though it was only one game, results like that give the other clubs optimism that they may win the league this year.
We can’t write City off because we are aware of their history of both victories and losses, but this will instill a lot of confidence in Arsenal.
“Pep Guardiola fielded a serious team against Newcastle, and against Wolves, they’re giving up a goal or two, falling behind in games, and they seem human.”
‘It’s going to be fascinating. If Arsenal can maintain its players healthy, they will have a great chance this year.
“I thought Arsenal [against Bournemouth]] responded well.” The North London Derby would have disappointed them. They’ll have to manage
They will be assured that they have rejoined the title race. The distance won’t close to four or six points when you’re doubting your ability to overtake them.
Up until there are nine or ten games left, stay with them.
‘Arsenal won’t simply run away with the league; instead, you usually have to crawl your way to victory.
They committed mistakes and came apart late in the season, but they must not make the same error again. We’ll then check to see if they’ve matured. I think they’ll do it.
I only ask that they maintain composure and exercise a little more ruthlessness. I’m eager to see what happens as we approach some significant tests.
