Gary Neville has piled-up extra pressure onto Arsenal by terming them as the favourites in the all-important fixture against Manchester United.

The Gunners are fresh from a humiliating 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, the ramifications of which are still are not completely known. Nonetheless, former Manchester United player Gary Neville is still sure about who the favourite is, but unaware of the Arsene Wenger’s side’s physchological ability.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “It’s a game where the result is difficult to call”.

“If United were to score first it would be a very difficult atmosphere. I was there against Manchester City and the atmosphere was strange. It’s weird down there at the moment. If United were to go in front it would be a very uncomfortable afternoon for Arsene Wenger and his players.

“It’s also the sort of game where if Arsenal score first with United in town, then it could lift everybody.

“There is a lot on this game – United have got a lot of games coming up and there isn’t a respite for them. Arsenal have got to be favourites but – psychologically – you just don’t know where they are at.”
