Gary Neville: Why I want Arsenal to win the title despite being Man United fan
The Manchester United legend explains why he would like to see Arsenal win the Premier League title
Gary Neville has admitted that he would like to see Arsenal win the Premier League title despite being a Manchester United supporters.
The Gunners have suffered a potentially devastating six days in the title race after Arsenal lost 2-1 to Everton at Goodison Park last week before a 2-1 defeat at direct rivals Manchester City on Sunday evening.
In both Premier League fixtures, Arsenal were leading 1-0 before Arsene Wenger’s side conspired to surrender winning positions to leave Goodison Park and The Etihad empty handed ahead of their home clash against West Bromwich Albion on Boxing Day.
The north London side are a staggering nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea after Antonio Conte’s men recorded their 11th straight Premier League victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
Wenger hasn’t led Arsenal to the Premier League title since 2003-04 despite finishing in second place last term.
Speaking to Sky Sports after their 2-1 loss at The Etihad, Manchester United legend Neville explained why he would love to see Arsenal win the Premier League title.
“It’s such a great club and he’s been a great manager. You [Graeme Souness] is a Liverpool fan, I’m a Manchester United fan, you [Thierry Henry] would want Arsenal to win the league,” Neville said.
“If there was another club to win the league other than our own, you would say you’d want Arsenal to go and do it. You just hope that they can get over that line.”
