Gary Neville praised Arsenal after their win over Chelsea, but he doubts they can maintain their form for the next 20 games.
Arsenal has won 11 of their last 13 Premier League games, earning praise from both pundits and rival fans. As a result, they lead the league by two points over Manchester City.
Neville, who has criticized Arsenal since the start of the season, still insists he is not yet convinced.
“We have to question Arsenal. Arsenal fans come at me every single week, every single week, because I will still continue to question them until I don’t see a moment like I did with five or six games to go last season and they get through those moments and they finish in the top-four.”
“They haven’t proven it yet. It’s like a boxer who hasn’t won a title. You have to question them. But what you can’t question is that was a really, really good performance. It’s still very early in the season and we’ve got this unique break for the World Cup, we don’t know how players are going to react to that.”
“There has to be questions because we don’t know what will happen after that but Arsenal have been fantastic in this first part of the season.‘They’re a real value team, they play great football, I love watching their forward players. I love Jesus, I love Saka, I love Martinelli, absolutely fantastic. Odegaard is class, he’s class.”
“But I want to see it over 38 games and we’ve seen recently they’ve found it tough in the last part of the season. That is not being overly negative. It’s just saying let’s see what happens in 20 games time.”
