Gary Neville on Arsenal

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has expressed his belief that Arsenal’s current position as hunters rather than the hunted could be the ideal scenario for their Premier League title chase. 

Following an impressive victory over West Ham on Sunday, just a week after defeating Liverpool, the Gunners find themselves back on level points with Manchester City in second place and trailing Liverpool by just two points.

Arsenal’s commanding 6-0 win against West Ham, with Declan Rice scoring against his former club, showcased their dominance. Mikel Arteta’s team were four goals ahead by half-time, emphasising their resurgence in form. Last season, Arsenal struggled to maintain their lead at the top and ultimately succumbed to the pressure. However, this time, they are in pursuit and could benefit from having less pressure on them.

Gary Neville, speaking on Sky Sports, highlighted the change in dynamics for Arsenal this season: “It was around this time last year that there was a lot of pressure on Arsenal because they were so many points clear. Everyone thought they’d win the league. But now they are sat there in the pack, right on the shoulder, and it may suit them better.”

The former Manchester United defender encouraged Arsenal to stay focused, maintain their calm, and prioritise keeping their players fit. He acknowledged their potential, stating, “They’re good in a lot of areas. If their front players, who are really exciting, can start to score the goals they were not at the start of the season, they have a real chance.”

Arsenal, who last won the Premier League title during their Invincible season two decades ago, face a challenging task ahead. Mikel Arteta will need to navigate through Jurgen Klopp’s final campaign with Liverpool, while Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City aims for a historic fourth successive league success.
