Gary Neville backs Arsenal in fresh Premier League title prediction


Arsenal fell to a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Fulham on Sunday, meaning they have slipped off top spot after taking it for Christmas.

Liverpool then beat Newcastle 4-2 on Monday evening, moving them five points clear of Arsenal. However, the Reds are set to lose two key players to international duty for around a month, which is good news for the Gunners. Arsenal are currently 6/1 to win the Premier League title with bet365.

Arsenal to win the Premier League


Gary Neville makes fresh Premier League title prediction

Despite their recent dip in form, Gary Neville remains convinced Arsenal can win the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners have gone three games without a win, losing two of their last three games following defeats to London rivals West Ham and Fulham.

Neville has backed Mikel Arteta to secure the trophy all season and remains convinced the north London giants can still win the league, but admits the lack of goals is a real issue:

“They’ve had a difficult patch but they can come back, they still can win the league,” he told Sky Sports.

“The issue is at the top end of the pitch where they have had a problem putting the ball in the back of the net at this moment in time.

“The striker is an issue. They’ve got two good strikers in [Eddie] Nketiah and [Gabriel] Jesus but they’re both two and three striker. They’re not a No.1 striker and they need that.”
