EPL: Why Arsenal will win title ahead of Man City – Gary Neville


Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has said Arsenal could win the Premier League if Manchester City suffered a hangover from winning the Treble last season.

Neville was speaking on Sky Sports after the Gunners claimed a 1-0 win over the champions on Sunday.

City have now suffered back-to-back league losses for the first time in five years.

Neville believes this is down to the after-effects of winning the Premier League, FA Cup and the Champions League last season.

He said: “The reason I predicted Arsenal to win the title is because I felt they got close last year, I thought they’d be close again and I thought there’d be a slight treble hangover for City.

“What’s City’s cause this year? They’ve achieved utopia, they can’t do anymore. When you’ve fought so long and hard to win a Champions League like they have and won the treble and repeated what Man Utd have done, there’s got to be that little bit of a sigh of relief.”
