Gary Neville has now shared who he wants to win the Premier League this season after victories for Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal this weekend.
Liverpool then got their title hopes back on track with a straightforward win against Burnley, even if Jurgen Klopp may not be happy with how many chances his side conceded.
And then very little needs to be said about Arsenal’s trip to East London yesterday, especially if you are a West Ham United fan.
Mikel Arteta’s men were in ruthless mood, and showed the kind of tenacity of a Guardiola side at its peak.
Interestingly, there was a difference between who the pundit thought would win the title, as opposed to who he wanted to win it.
Gary Neville wants Arsenal to finally win another Premier League title

Neville said: “I had Arsenal as champions at the start of the season, not many did. I still think City at this moment in time look ominous.
“But Arsenal, I want Arsenal to do it – for obvious reasons I don’t want Liverpool to win, as much as it would be a fairytale for Jurgen Klopp and what that would mean for Liverpool and him.
“But I just think in terms of what Arsenal did last season, where they just crumbled at the end, I would like to see them this season.”
Of course, it does now feel as if things are really heating up as we reach the ‘business end’ of the season.
Perhaps, if Arsenal are to win the Premier League, as Neville hopes, they will need to lean on their extended squad.
And to that degree, Arteta will have been delighted with the new role Ben White played yesterday.
