Gary Neville predicts who will win the Premier League this season

Gary Neville has reiterated that he still feels Arsenal will win the Premier League ahead of Manchester City and Liverpool this season.

The Manchester United legend, speaking on Sky Sports, believes the Gunners are the “only challengers” for the Citizens, while the Reds have an outside change at best.
As we edge closer to the halfway point of the Premier League campaign, the title race remains incredibly open. Just six points separate the top five at present.

Arsenal are top of the table on 39 points, while Liverpool and Aston Villa are second and third respectively on 38 points. The Reds have a slightly better goal difference than the Villans.
Then we have Manchester City, who are fourth on 34 points, followed by a resurgent Tottenham Hotspur, fifth on 33 points. Newcastle United are four points behind in sixth.

Neville, speaking on Sky Sports, says he believes Arsenal will triumph because of a number of factors, including complacency setting in at the Etihad Stadium following the treble-winning heights.

“I’ve said Arsenal are going to win the league because I’m banking on those little bits of injuries you get post-treble, that post-treble complacency and drop-off, and I’m banking on Arsenal keeping their main players fit,” he said.
I do think Arsenal are the only challengers for City, I never bought into the Liverpool thing before [Sunday]. It could happen just because of purely Jurgen Klopp, if they strengthen that midfield in January, but I feel Arsenal are a better team.”

Honestly, it’s too hard to call. Man City may be struggling, which is something most neutrals will be delighted with, but you can never truly rule them out of the equation.

Arsenal are certainly stronger than last season, and Liverpool have bounced back from a mediocre campaign last time out and will fancy their chances.

As for Aston Villa and Tottenham, I feel neither are not quite the finished product just yet in terms of pushing for the title and strength in depth. But top four is certainly in their reach.

Let’s see what the January window brings. The likes of Spurs and Newcastle could well look to bolster their ranks, as their strength in depth isn’t a particularly strong point.

In terms of predictions, I’ll go with Arsenal, as they seem focused and eager to get over the line after coming so close last season, and they’ve got a good squad for it.
