Gary Neville makes fresh EPL title prediction


Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has claimed Manchester City could win the Premier League before the last day of the season.

Arsenal are still top of the table following a 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday lunchtime.

However, City responded hours later with an emphatic 5-1 victory over Wolves.

The Gunners only hold a one-point lead over the champions, going into the final fixtures of the campaign.

But it is City who play next, when they travel to Fulham on Saturday.

Arsenal clash with United at Old Trafford.

Should Arsenal drop points against the Red Devils, Pep Guardiola’s men could potentially wrap the title up before the final day of the campaign.

Neville, speaking on his podcast, said: “It (the title race) may go down to the final day, and if it went to the final day, that would mean Arsenal have gone and beaten Manchester United at Old Trafford.

“While we can laugh and we can giggle about how Manchester United have been, but Arsenal going to Old Trafford and winning, that’s going to be a hell of a win.

“So, yeah, I have the fear that the title could be over in a week on Tuesday when in terms of sort of the neutrals, I am neutral when it comes to it, I don’t support City or Arsenal, but I want the title race to go to the final day, obviously.

“My fear is that if City win against Fulham on Saturday, which I think they will, and United take points off Arsenal on Sunday.

“Because I think if Arsenal go the last day of the season and they have beaten Manchester United, this is a massive increase in their performance level.

“It is anyway, Arsenal have already proven that they are a different side than last season, but it just feels like there is an inevitability to it that City will just be perfect towards 

the end or to the end.”
