Pat Nevin says that it is a case of same old Arsenal in the Premier League title race.

The Gunners are in third place in the Premier League table and five points behind leaders Leicester City.

Arsene Wenger’s side suffered a 3-2 defeat by a weakened Manchester United side at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal are bidding to win their first Premier League title since 2004 but also trail second-placed Tottenham Hotspur by three points.

Former Chelsea midfielder Nevin questioned how Arsenal conspired to lose to Van Gaal’s under-strength United side on Sunday.

“Everything was there for them: a weakened United side, a lot of kids and centre-halves that shouldn’t be centre-halves,” Nevin told Newstalk.

“They don’t look like winning the league. It is a case of same old same old Arsenal.”

Arsenal host Swansea City in the Premier League on Wednesday night as Wenger’s side look to end a three-game losing run.

The Gunners played out a stalemate with Championship side Hull City in the FA Cup fifth round.
