Gary Neville has commented on the title race between Manchester City and Arsenal. It will be uncertain until the very end, and it is difficult to predict who could take the title. ‘I thought City had a more difficult game.
They were more likely to drop points in my mind. I didn’t think either team would to be fair. So City did their job and then you expect Arsenal to go and comfortably win. The fact that they’ve won in that way gives them that extra spirit and extra momentum, because it is a game you’d expect them to win 2-0 or 3-0 just because Bournemouth are second from bottom.
But they made it really difficult for themselves. They’ve got a real momentum, there’s a spirit building, the fans are with them, I would say to them they’ve got to stop conceding goals. It sounds like a really simple thing to say but when you concede goals on a run-in it’s really tough and they’ve conceded two against Bournemouth, they’ve conceded against Brentford, they’ve conceded against United, Villa, City.
They’ve conceded quite a few goals, I think 11 in the last eight games. So they just need to manage that a little bit because I think they’ve got 12 games to go now. City still aren’t playing at their fluent best.
We’ve got a hell of a title race.’- he said, as quoted by metro.co.uk
Gary Neville on Arsenal
Neville doesn't seem overly optimistic about Arsenal. ‘No, I made my prediction at the start of the season and I’m not going to change my opinion of Manchester City.
The reason I’ve not turned on Jurgen Klopp is because what you do over a period of five or six years you build up a trust and you earn the right to be thought of in a way that you’re a winner and you don’t write him off.
I would never write off a Jurgen Klopp team and say that’s him done at Liverpool, he’s finished. Arsenal haven’t proven to me that they can handle the last 10 games of a run-in. They haven’t proven that to me. And when they do, I’ll take my hat off to them and say congratulations.'
