Gary Neville reacts to Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Villa

 Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has insisted that Arsenal are not out of the Premier League race despite their 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday.

Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins scored for Unai Emery’s men as they sealed a shock win at the Emirates.

The result left the Gunners in second place with 71 points, two less than leaders Manchester City.

It led to pundits claiming City are now firm favourites to win it for a fourth consecutive season, after Liverpool also lost 1-0 at Anfield.

But Neville said on Sky Sports: “You have to trust them you think [to respond to the Aston Villa defeat].

“They need to call upon last season’s experience when they dropped points people didn’t think they would.

“They need to get back on the bike because they’re not out of the title race. It’s going to be tough because of what Man City are but it’s about how Arsenal Recover.”
