Gary Neville engages in Twitter spat with fans over Arsenal’s Premier League title bid

Gary Neville has responded to criticism from Arsenal fans on Twitter after their title bid was derailed.

The Gunners’ unexpected Premier League title challenge took a turn for the worse on Sunday after they were comfortably beaten by Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates Stadium.

As a result, Manchester City are inches away from winning their third consecutive Premier League title.

Pep Guardiola’s side know that a win against Chelsea on Sunday will seal the deal.

Throughout the season, former Manchester United defender Neville has been adamant that he believes City will eventually beat Arsenal to the title.

On Monday, he explained on Twitter exactly what went wrong for the Gunners.

He wrote: “Arsenal have had a great season but when the going got tough they struggled. It seems now the narrative is that it’s City’s strength, injuries and a tough run-in is the cause.

“These are normal factors that need pricing into a title race. Arsenal have dropped 12 pts in 7 games! Won 9pts from a possible 21. All the characteristics of it being too much have appeared. Loss of form, giving up leads, energy and legs going, making unforced errors not seen earlier in the season, young players becoming tense and losing their freedom of expression and others showing too much emotion when calmness is needed.”

However, some Arsenal fans were left unimpressed by Neville’s words as they expressed their own feelings towards the former England international.

Neville replied to one fan saying: “Are you the guy that’s been abusing me all season! You should hibernate for summer and start again next season.”

Before adding: “You’re starting to crack now my friend. Breathe! In Out In Out.”

Arsenal are back in action this weekend as they look to delay the City party for as long as possible, starting with a victory against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
