Gary Neville still believes Arsenal will finish behind Man Utd

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville still believes Arsenal will finish behind the Red Devils this season.

The Gunners have been tipped to win the Premier League as they spend much of the term at the top of the standings.

However, Manchester City is following them closely and United is also having a good season.

The resurgent Erik Ten Hag’s team has won the Carabao Cup and could still clinch three more titles.

Most people believe the worst-case scenario would be Arsenal finishing the season in second place behind City.

But Neville believes the Gunners will finish behind United in 3rd place despite spending the most time at the summit so far.

He told The Overlap: ‘That’s my inkling earlier in the season, what normally happens is one team gets so close they realise they can’t win it and then they just go like that in the last two or three games.

‘You lose two games and then all of a sudden someone else goes above you. I thought City would win the league and United would finish second two or three months ago.

‘To be fair, I’m not going to change my mind on it. I still think City are going to win the league even though Arsenal, the closer it gets… but 14 games is still a long way to go. I still think United will finish second.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Neville is allowed to make his prediction and stick by it, but it does not change the fact we are favourites at this stage of the season.

The league term is not over yet, but if we keep winning, we will be champions at the end.

  1. You would think its between Arsenal and City, United are still a long way back. The only thing I would say is in terms of current form United look better than either of the clubs in front of them. Whether its possible for them to bridge the gap in the games remaining is doubtful. But if they could go past Arsenal they could go past City too.

  2. he could be right or wrong, we just need to have maximum concentration and give everything in our remaining remaining fixtures and see what happens.

  3. I dont know for this gary neville,today he wil support arsenal tomorrow man.u,how is it possible,they are lucky we are not meeting in the premier league.arteta know how to deal with man.u

  4. ManU is no more in contention,they got swatted away the moment Arsenal won against Leicester,if we win against Everton we extend the lead on ManU to 11points,,manU’s next game is against Liverpool at Anfield whiles Arsenal plays Bournemouth at home….ManU’s best results is a draw and with a win over Bournemouth Arsenal will further extend the lead to 13/14,this means Arsenal will have to lose 5 of our remaining 12 games then whiles ManU must win all of his 13 remaining games,which is literally impossible.. By Logical probability,ManU is out of the league contention and that happened when Arsenal won against Villa & Leicester..

  5. Sesmics has pretty much covered it.As for Neville ,why do you continue to give the arrogant,Arsenal hating git oxygen? It’s killing him that Arsenal are above Manure & fingers crossed ,will win the Prem.To see his sad boat every time Arsenal get a favourable result is a joy to behold.Hell slap it into him.
