Neville Lauds Three Arsenal Stars After Win Over Man City

Neville Lauds Three Arsenal Stars After Win Over Man City

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has heaped praises on three Arsenal players after a brilliant performance in the win against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Gunners secured a first win over City in the Premier League since December 2015 thanks to Gabriel Martinelli's deflected late strike.

And with it, Neville believes Declan Rice, William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes are the three most important players to land Arsenal a long-awaited league title.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville said: "They've got to keep their players fit. They're 100 per cent better with Declan Rice in the middle of the pitch, without a shadow of a doubt.

"You want more from your centre-forwards, and it was hard for both of them [against City], but there's a question mark over whether that'll cause them problems in the end.

"They have to keep Rice fit, the idea of not playing Gabriel Magalhaes at the start of the season was an experiment that won't happen again. 

"Those two centre-halves - Gabriel and William Saliba - were pivotal against City, they were outstanding playing against the best player in the world in that position [Erling Haaland].

"To beat City, and give [injured] Bukayo Saka a three-week rest, that could be a really good thing.

"The two centre-backs and Rice are the most important players to keep fit. They won't win the league without them."
