Gary Neville: These two results typified Arsenal under Arsene Wenger

The former Manchester United defender is tipping Arsenal to miss out on the title but settle for a top-four finish

Gary Neville says Arsenal are where he’d expect them to finish in the Premier League table this season: fourth place.

The Gunners have lost ground on their title rivals Chelsea over the festive period to leave Arsene Wenger facing the prospect of another season without winning the Premier League title.

Arsenal saw their 14-game unbeaten run come to and end at Goodison Park after the Gunners squandered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to an out-of-form Everton side following Ashley Williams’ late winner.

The north London side were unable to make a swift return to winning ways in their next Premier League fixture at The Etihad after Manchester City came from behind to ease to a 2-1 in against Arsenal.

The Gunners managed to beat West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace in their next two Premier League fixtures to end their festive slump but Neville wasn’t impressed with Arsenal’s performances on the road.

“That week in Manchester and Merseyside typifies them,” Neville said, speaking on the Gary Neville podcast.

“You have to go up there and get four points and then people will really stand up and think this is different. Then they’re four or five points off Chelsea and not nine points off them. They are where you’d expect them to be. I think they’ll end up in the same position again.”
