Manchester United legend, Gary Neville still believes Arsenal will win the Premier League title this season and will be ‘encouraged’ by Manchester City’s latest defeat over the weekend.
Man City suffered a shock 2-1 defeat against Wolves on Saturday, making it back-to-back losses after they were eliminated from the Carabao Cup by Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, Arsenal won 4-0 against Bournemouth and are just a point behind leaders Man City after seven matches this season.
“I have got Arsenal to win the league this year,” Neville told his podcast.
“That post-treble feeling, what it would have taken out of those City players and staff would have been enormous.
“They could easily win the league this season and obviously it is just one game, but little results like that give the other teams encouragement.
“We know City have lost games in the past and gone on long winning runs so we can’t write them off but it will give a lot of encouragement to Arsenal.
“Against Newcastle, it was a serious team that Pep Guardiola took up there and at Wolves, they’re conceding a goal or two, they’re going behind in games and they look human.
“It will be interesting. If Arsenal keep their players fit, they’ve got a great chance this season.”
