The Premier League title race looks like it could go to the wire.
It’s early proceedings, yes, but Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all look like worthy contenders.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham are fifth in the table and they’ve been without Harry Kane for five games.
Meanwhile, Manchester United, eight points adrift of the leaders, shouldn’t be counted out just yet, either.
So it would be foolish to put all of your money on one team right now.
City, Arsenal and Liverpool lead the way on 23 points. Yet that hasn’t prevented Gary Neville from voicing his concerns about two of those teams.
The ex-Manchester United defender, winner of eight Premier League titles, believes City and Arsenal cannot be trusted.
On his Sky Sports Podcast, Neville added that Tottenham’s European commitments could create problems.
“I think Manchester City and Arsenal are the better teams, but can you trust either of them fully yet? I don’t think you can,” he said, per Goal.
“That’s not to say they won’t go and deliver, but because they’re in Europe, and that they’ve shown glimpses of the old Arsenal and old City, they’ve got to give me more yet before I trust them.
“I think Tottenham are as good as Liverpool, I think Tottenham are as good as Chelsea, there’s no doubt, but because Spurs are in European competition I would put Chelsea and Liverpool ahead of them in the Premier League for that reason.
“That’s without even mentioning United, who have fallen behind a little bit.”
We will see next year whether City and Arsenal’s European commitments end up costing them, although both appear to have enough depth to compete in the Champions League and sustain a title charge.
