Gary Neville claims Man Utd will finish above Arsenal as Man City tipped to win league | Football | Sport
“Of course, I’d love Manchester United to come through and win it. But I don’t think that’s going to happen this season. I’d love Arsenal to win it more than Manchester City, but I think the reality of it is that, at some point, Manchester City will just hit a run.
“Once they hit a run, they have to play Arsenal twice, [and] Arsenal have got all the big games to come.”
Neville pointed out that Arsenal are yet to suffer a difficult run this season, with their form almost perfect since August. “At some point, there will be a very difficult period for Arsenal this season. Is it conceivable that Arsenal are going to continue as they are? I don’t think it is.
“Is it conceivable that they will draw two and lose one in a three-game period? If they did that, their lead is gone. All of a sudden, the pack is up with them. That’s what I think is going to happen – we will see a traditional Premier League season with a pace-setter and they get drawn back in a little bit.”
