Roy Keane and Gary Neville disagree on Aston Villa vs Arsenal prediction

Manchester United legends Roy Keane and Gary Neville have both offered their predictions for Arsenal’s Premier League clash away to Aston Villa. The north Londoners currently sit top of the table, two points clear of Liverpool in second, with third-placed Villa four points behind the league leaders.

Unai Emery’s men enjoyed an excellent Wednesday evening, dominating reigning champions Manchester City in a 1-0 win that could have been two or three-nil on another day. The west Midlands-based club boast an excellent home record too.

In fact, they have won each of their last 14 league fixtures at Villa Park. However, the game before the streak was actually against the Gunners, a match that ended 4-2 in favour of the away side back in February.

Ahead of Saturday’s highly-anticipated clash, United icon Keane has offered his thoughts. When asked for his prediction on The Overlap YouTube Channel, the Irishman said: “I fancy Arsenal.

“2-1 Arsenal.” But his former teammate Gary Neville was less confident about the away side securing a result.

Neville and fellow Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher predicted the scoreline to be 1-1, a result that could allow Liverpool to leapfrog Arsenal depending on their away fixture against Crystal Palace earlier in the day. The two Premier League giants will battle it out at Anfield later this month, with the Gunners travelling to Merseyside on December 23 in what promises to be a hugely entertaining match between two title contenders.
