Sir Alex Ferguson would have 'killed' Manchester United players for Arsenal error

Gary Neville claims that Sir Alex Ferguson would have 'killed' him or any of the Manchester United team for making the error that Arsenal did in their loss to Brighton.
On Sunday the Premier League title was ended in all but name, as Manchester City beat Everton and Arsenal were dismantled at home by Brighton.
It means that City are only one win away from lifting the title for the third year in-a-row, and becoming only the third team to do that in the Premier League era.
They could capture it without even playing, should the Gunners lose to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, which will hurt a lot for their fans especially the one who cancelled his holiday to paradise just to go to the final game of the season.
It's not too much surprise that City are going to win the league again, with the question about whether or not Mikel Arteta's team were 'bottling' the league raging for several weeks.
Piers Morgan certainly seemed to think that was the case following the home defeat to Roberto de Zerbi's very impressive Brighton team.
Arsenal fans were fuming that the visitors' opening goal, a close range header from Julio Enciso, because they believed Jakub Kiwior had been fouled in the build up.
The Pole did go down but Neville believes that the fact the defender got back up so quickly was proof the centre-back wasn't that injured.
"How harsh should I be on Kiwior?", the former United right-back questioned on the Sky Sports podcast.
"If I did that while I was at Manchester United, I’m getting killed for that. Any defender is getting killed for that in my United team.
"He wasn’t that injured, you’ve got to get up. He was up and running after Mitoma a few moments later. I’ve got very little sympathy for him.
"He needs to look at that and admit he needed to do better. Just get up and make sure you defend the attack. It was a poor moment for him and a poor moment for Arsenal, but Brighton deserved it."
Kiwior was stood on by Evan Ferguson and stayed down after the ball was played back into the box leading to the opening goal.
