Gary Neville, a Sky Sports pundit, believes Arsenal will not win the Premier League this season.
The Gunners extended their lead at the top of the table to eight points on Sunday.
Mikel Arteta’s men extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in a tense North London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Arsenal now sit eight points ahead of reigning champions Manchester City, with Newcastle and Manchester United trailing by a point each.
“No,” Neville said on his podcast when asked if Arsenal would win the Premier League. But I predicted that Leicester would not win the Premier League. They are not going to win the league. Manchester City will win the league, and I believe Manchester United will finish second, which will irritate Arsenal fans!
“I’d rather Arsenal win the league than Man City. I think it would be absolutely sensational for the Premier League.
“I think about watching the Premier League, we’ve seen City sweep up, apart from Liverpool, over the past five years. To think Arsenal could come and win it, it adds to our league, it makes our league great.
“I’d love Man Utd to win it, but I don’t think that’s going to happen this season.
“The reality of it is, I think at some point Man City will hit a run. Once they do, they’ve got to play Arsenal twice. With City, is Erling Haaland not getting the service, or does he need to do more? I’ll ask that question.
“Does he need to do more, or does he need to be patient?
“If Erling Haaland starts to kick on, if City start to purr, if the defence starts to shore up a bit more than it has done, and they need Ruben Dias back if they can, I think City will win it.
