Arsene Wenger has played down Gary Neville’s comments about Arsenal after the former defender claimed that the Gunners are “a long way away” from a title challenge.

Speaking on Sky Sports after Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Liverpool, Neville said: “They do not understand how to defend their box and they do not understand how to stop people playing – and that is a massive problem.”

However, Wenger has responded to the former England international’s criticism by insisting that his opinion is “exaggerated”.

Wenger said: “You have to take that with a distance, because it’s judgement on one game. I believe it’s a bit exaggerated.

“[We have] to give absolutely everything in every single game until the end of the season.

“I believe that with the injuries coming back we will have a much stronger squad than we have had for the past two months.

“I believe 2015 can be very exciting [if] we manage to get our injured players back and have a good run.”
