Gary Neville: What impressed me about Arsenal in derby win
The Man United legend explains why he was so impressed with Arsenal in the north London derby
Gary Neville has praised Arsenal for producing their best performance of the season in the 2-0 win over Tottenham last weekend.
The Gunners welcomed Spurs to The Emirates in their first Premier League game since a 3-1 loss to title rivals Manchester City.
Arsenal have struggled with consistency so far this season following a run of four defeats in six games on the road in the Premier League.
Their home form has been sound, though, with five successive victories ahead of the visit of Tottenham in the north London derby.
Arsenal then produced one of their best performances of the season with a 2-0 win against title rivals Spurs at the Emirates Stadium last Saturday.
Arsene Wenger’s side made the breakthrough thanks to Shkodran Mustafi’s header before Alexis Sanchez doubled the home side’s advantage.
Former Manchester United defender Neville praised Arsenal for producing their best performance of the Premier League campaign in the north London derby.
“I didn’t expect to see that from Arsenal,” Neville told Sky Sports. “That is as good as I’ve seen Arsenal.
“I wonder whether they would be able to keep it up after a bold start. Arsenal were fantastic. There wasn’t a poor performer.”
Arsenal are looking to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2003-04 when the Gunners finished the campaign.,
The Gunners have won the FA Cup in three of the past four seasons under Wenger.
