Gary Neville gives Arsenal condition to win title ahead of Man City


Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has said Arsenal will only win the Premier League title this season if they defeat Manchester City on Sunday.

The Gunners go into the game at the Etihad top of the table with 10 fixtures left.

Mikel Arteta’s men came close to winning the league last season after leading the table for 248 days, but fell away in the last weeks of the campaign.

Neville feels Arsenal can get the job done this time around, but only if they leave Manchester with all three points.

“With the run-in, I think [Arsenal] have to win on Sunday,” Neville said on The Overlap.

“You always have to imagine that City are going to be perfect.

“Unfortunately, we’re at the point in the season where they could win eight games on the bounce. I don’t think Arsenal will.

“But that’s why I think [Sunday is] so important. City would be disappointed with a draw but I think to damage them, and to give you the full belief, I think you need to win.”
