The former Manchester United defender gave his latest verdict on Arsenal’s title chances in the Premier League.

Gary Neville has revised his prediction for Arsenal in the Premier League title race.

Neville initially tipped Arsenal for success, but later changed his opinion because of the club’s lack of ‘killer instinct’. However, after the Gunners thrashed West Ham 6-0 at the weekend, he has once again altered his stance.

“It was around this time last year that there was a lot of pressure on Arsenal, because they were so many points clear,” Neville said on Sky Sports.

“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.

“They’ve not produced their best form to this point but they have in the last couple of weeks started to look like they will hit the same form as last season that put them into a position of winning the league.

“They need to stay focused, calm, and keep their players fit. 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.

“They’re a good team and they are more experienced after last year.”

Arsenal will be back in action this Saturday away to Burnley in the Premier League.
