Arsenal fans have slammed Gary Neville for being “delusional” after the Manchester United legend underplayed the Gunners’ chances of securing a top-four finish this season.
The Gunners showed how far they have come under Mikel Arteta this season by playing scintillating attacking football in the 3-2 win over Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday.
Rising stars Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli all combined magnificently in the attacking third and each had a goal to show for their brilliance.
But despite grabbing another crucial three points in the race for Champions League football next season, pundit Neville claimed he didn’t “trust Arsenal” to beat the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham to the top-four.
Neville said on Sky Sports: “I still think Man United could do it, I don’t trust Arsenal fully, I think it would be brilliant for Mikel Arteta and those young players. They’ve been fantastic.
“But I do think they’ve still got some big games to play. Manchester United have still got to go to Arsenal as well.
“There’s a long way to go.”
The ex-Red Devils defender’s comments unsurprisingly triggered some Arsenal fans, who thought he was being biased towards his former side.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “He’s so delusional”.
Another tweeted: “He's a comedian! How can he watch the game like that, know Arsenal have games in hand and say that?”
Arsenal have now won four games in a row on their way to sitting fourth in the Premier League table ahead of United with three games in hand.
However, the Gunners will face a tougher test in their next three matches as they play Leicester, Liverpool and Aston Villa.
