| Last updated
Gary Neville has made his Premier League title race prediction ahead of the North London derby between Arsenal and Spurs.
Champions Manchester City are looking to win a historic fourth consecutive title and have started the new season with six wins out of six.
Arsenal ran City close last season and led the way for large spells before Pep Guardiola's side kicked on at the business end of the campaign and claimed a stunning treble.
They finished just five points behind but former Manchester United captain Neville believes the Gunners will go one better this season.
He has tipped Mikel Arteta to deliver a first Premier League title for Arsenal since the Invincibles in 2003/04.
"Arsenal, I've got them down as title-winners this season which is ambitious - an ambitious prediction," he said on Sky Sports.
"I feel there is something here.They've stopped conceding goals, they've only had ten shots on target against them."
Speaking on the Overlap, Neville had made the same prediction at the start of the season - changing his tune from last term and bolding stating: "Just because of the three thing and never winning a fourth, I am going to go Arsenal to win the league, City second. I think Arsenal can beat them."
But predictably his comments picked up a lot of reaction online.
One said: "Gary Neville is now making sense.
A second added: "Wow Gary is saving himself early on this one."
A third commented: "Gary Neville predicting Arsenal as title winners? Did he switch teams in his sleep?"
A fourth fan disagreed, writing: "He's never been right before."
A fifth user stated: "Spent the whole of last season saying City were gonna win it and he was correct. Hopefully he's right again."
A final person was dismissive, saying: "Too early to talk about that mate!!"
