Manchester United legend Gary Neville has claimed that Arsenal are more of a title challenger than Liverpool this season.

Having narrowly missed out on winning the league title last term, the Gunners have enjoyed a stellar start to this season, sitting at the top of the table with 33 points from 14 games and are two points ahead of second-placed Liverpool.

So, they have been showing signs that they are the two clubs that can challenge Manchester City for the league title this campaign.

After enjoying a brilliant start to this campaign, Pep Guardiola’s side have now lost ground in the title race after drawing the last three consecutive games and are currently third with 30 points from 14 games.

Now, speaking on his podcast, when Neville was asked which of the teams are likely to be taking the most advantage of Man City’s slip, Neville said that Liverpool aren’t expected to challenge for the league title this season but Jurgen Klopp is a really good manager and he could help his side mount a title charge.

However, the pundit states that it’s Arsenal – who are more likely to win the league title this term and they could go all the way this time, bypassing Man City, having gained experience from last season’s slip-up.

Neville says Arsenal more likely to win the title than Liverpool

Neville said:

“Liverpool I’m not sure about but they’ve got Klopp so I think that’s a factor because he can win and he’s proven he can win. Arsenal have still got to demonstrate that they can win, they got to get that running first. They look like on track to be on the running again that they can handle the running.

“I’m more confident in this year that they can handle the running than they did last year. I think they have got more this season, more experience after what happened last year. I think Arsenal has what it takes to win the league.”

It has been suggested that Arsenal haven’t been able to showcase their best this season. But, their first-half display against Wolverhampton Wanderers suggests that they are returning to their best and it’s likely they will get better as the season progresses. So, it is going to be interesting to see how the campaign unfolds over the coming months and whether they can eventually win the title this term.
