Manchester United and England legend Gary Neville has poured water on Arsenal’s Premier League title credentials.
The Gunners can consider themselves lucky to have snatched a point away from their tie at Old Trafford today, having been dominated for much of the game.
Arsenal went into half-time with the scores tied at 0-0, but following the break everything was going in favour of the home side up until scoring the opener, and they continued to dominate right up until we scored a late equaliser against the run of play.
Gary Neville has now moved to play down our club’s title credentials having watched them a number of times this season, stating they do not look like champions in his view.
He said: “They are a resilient bunch as they always end up getting back towards that second and third spot come the end of the season.
“I didn’t get the impression today watching Arsenal that we were watching a team that would go on and win the Premier League.
“That is just how I feel in this moment. I watched them earlier in the season against Liverpool and I watched the game against Tottenham – I didn’t feel I was watching champions.”
We can hardly claim to have looked like deserving winners after our disappointing display today, nor can we argue that we will win what looks like the toughest Premier League title race in English history.
I can’t believe that you can completely rule us out of the title chase however, but we certainly did disappoint today, in what should have been a great opportunity to end our 10-year hoodoo away to United.
Is it too early to rule us out of the title chase? Did today give our rivals too much of an advantage?
