Arsenal currently leads the league by 27 points after 10 games. The Gunners have won nine games and lost only one. With other clubs struggling, Arsenal appears to be the main title contenders to Manchester City.

Though Arsenal appear to be in command, Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes the Gunners will slip after the World Cup.

Asked if he still thinks City will run away with the title, Neville said on Sky Sports:

“I still think they will. I don’t think today changes it.This is a freak game playing at Anfield and I think for City it’s the most difficult game they have.”

“I still think City will run away with it. I think Arsenal will come back towards Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester United, Newcastle.”

“And I think City will just go away. This season is a very different season as well, post World Cup it could be completely different than it is now.”
