Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has said that a top-three finish for Arsenal this season would be sensational, insisting that they should be “nowhere near title talk” at the moment.
Recall that Arsenal narrowly missed out on UEFA Champions League football last season after finishing in the fifth position.
The Gunners are eight points ahead of Manchester City after their 0-0 draw with Newcastle on Tuesday night.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville said: “To say we are even talking about the title now – we are nowhere near title talk.
“He [Mikel Arteta] will try to relax them; he’s been there before with Manchester City. That will help them. I think they will be ok.
“A good season for Arsenal would be to finish in the top three. That would be a sensational season.”
