Neville: City dropping points gives title rivals hope

Gary Neville thinks the fact Manchester City are dropping points this season will give their Premier League rivals hope in the race for the title.

And Neville, speaking on The Gary Neville Podcast, thinks City will still be challenging come the end of the season but the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool will believe they can push them all the way.

"The more Man City drop points, and they're not wobbling - but the more they drop points to give encouragement to others, the more the league will think there's a chance something could happen," Neville said.

"I've predicted Arsenal for the title this season, I just feel like post-treble, three times on the bounce, you may get days like [Saturday] where that clinical, extra bit of a finish doesn't come along.
