The Gunners capitalized on City’s defeat in Saturday’s Manchester derby to defeat arch-rivals Spurs in a comfortable 2-0 win.

An own goal from Hugo Lloris and a goal from Martin Odegaard separated the two sides on paper, but Arsenal overcame Antonio Conte’s side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Arsenal have picked up a whopping 15 wins from 18 Premier League games this season, the only defeat being a 3-1 loss to Manchester United in September.

Although they recovered from that loss and went on to take 32 points from a possible 36, Neville accepted after the game Sky Sportshe believes that Manchester City will overtake the Gunners and start one of their famous winning streaks.

“When Erling Haaland starts to play, when City starts to purr, when the defense starts to be a little bit safer than before – and they need Ruben Dias back – then I think City will [den Titel] will win,” said the United legend.

“There will be a very difficult period for Arsenal at some point this season. Is it conceivable that Arsenal can go on like this? I don’t think so. They can draw two and one lose in three games – and if so “That’s the case, the lead is gone and the pack has caught up with them. I think we’re going to see a traditional Premier League season where a pacesetter side goes out and then falls a little behind.”

“But I still believe this season will be a lot better for Arsenal than I ever imagined,” admitted Neville.

The former right-back added he hopes Arsenal win the league. Speaking of Mikel Arteta, he said: “I know the Arsenal fans are going to smack me like they’ve been doing for the last four months: I hope you win the league! I think it’s so difficult for Mikel Arteta as a young coach the phalanx of [Antonio] conte, [Jürgen] clop, [Carlo] ancelotti, [Pep] Guardiola, [Jose] Breaking through Mourinho and becoming one of those super coaches. You can’t break them.”

“If Arteta wins the league this season, he’ll be in that group. He’ll do it anyway because his football is fantastic. But he has to win this trophy,” Neville said. “A Champions League, a Premier League, those are the super coaches who win those trophies. So I’ll keep my fingers crossed for them that if Man Utd don’t do it, which I don’t think, they can. Then let them [Arsenal] rather win the Premier League.”

“Man City have won too many titles for me!”
