Arsenal have been backed to end their 20-year wait for a Premier League title by Gary Neville, despite what the right-back claims has been a slow start to the season.
The Gunners are currently 3rd in the Premier League after 12 games but are just one point off table-topping Manchester City and have conceded fewer goals than the Sky Blues. Back Arsenal to win the Premier League at 11/2 with bet365.
Gary Neville on Arsenal winning the Premier League
Arsenal spent much of the 2022/23 season top of the table, only for the north Londoners to collapse in April and hand Manchester City yet another league title.
Arsenal are now without a league title for 20 years, last lifting the trophy when they were crowned the Invincibles. Despite this, Gary Neville believes Arsenal can win the Premier League this term:
“I think that Arsenal can win the league this season,” Neville said. “Despite starting slow, the football will come, the football that we saw from them last season. The fact that they’ve started a little bit slower, I never think is a bad thing, they’re sat there in the pack behind [top].
“But I do think that when the football comes, and it could come after Christmas in March which is the right time, they could be the opposite of last season – a bit of a slow start and stronger finish.
“My worry with Arsenal is a centre-forward, I like [Gabriel] Jesus and [Eddie] Nketiah but for me they are a number two and three, they need a number one,” he contiued.
