Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has expressed his confidence in Arsenal winning their remaining Premier League games and securing the title. 

Speaking on his podcast, Neville praised Arsenal’s improved mentality and defensive stability, which he believes will see them through to the end of the season.

“It’s a far better Arsenal team than last season, a far bigger mentality, a stronger mentality,” Neville said. “People will point towards William Saliba [returning] and I will as well, but it’s more than that. There is a focus and discipline and attention to detail on the pitch in their defensive work – and six clean sheets on the bounce is a hell of an achievement in any season.”

Neville also highlighted Arsenal’s ability to bounce back from setbacks, citing their response to recent defeats against Aston Villa and in the Champions League.


“They maybe had a bit of a wobble, the Villa game and obviously in the Champions League, but that can happen. They’ve got back on the bike and demonstrated that they have moved forward as a club, moved forward as a coaching team, moved forward as a group of players and are nowhere near the position they were in last season.”

Arsenal’s remaining games include a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United, which Neville believes could be a challenging match. 

“You never know what is going to happen at Old Trafford and Old Trafford can be a graveyard for teams,” he said. “Even with the way Manchester United are at the moment, you have to regard that as a massive match and a big game.”

However, Neville ultimately expects Arsenal to take maximum points from their run-in and secure the title. “I think they will achieve a 100 percent record. The one doubt is the Old Trafford game. It will all depend for me on how City do in the next week or two as well.”
