Arsenal’s Dortmund win boosts league title chances, says Gary Neville
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville says Arsenal's victory at Dortmund gives them a chance of winning league title
Gary Neville believes Arsenal’s 1-0 victory at Borussia Dortmind gives the Gunners “more of a chance” of winning the Premier League title.
Wales international Aaron Ramsey was yet again the match-winner in Germany as the midfielder’s 11th goal of the season sealed a win against last term’s Champions League runners-up.
Arsene Wenger’s men travel to defending champions Manchester United on Sunday, and Neville believes the Gunners showed vital “resilience” against Dortmund on Wednesday night.
We all know they can play great football.What we saw from Arsenal last night gives them more of a chance of winning a league. Resilience !

Meanwhile, Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes there is “no better time” for Arsenal to be facing United.
“It’s been a good week for us so far,” Szczesny told Arsenal Player. “[We’ve had] two clean sheets and two results against two quality opponents, one away from home at one of the toughest venues in Europe, I believe.
“Real Madrid got battered here [in Dortmund] last year so it’s a good feeling to come out of here with three points.
“We’re looking forward to Sunday and we’re going to try and make it a perfect week.
“It would be an amazing week to get nine points out of the three games. Probably not a lot of people expected us to do so.
“There’s not a better time for us to go to Old Trafford, we’re confident, we’re enjoying our football, so we’re looking forward to it.”
