GARY NEVILLE has made a bold prediction about the Premier League title race.
The ex-Man Utd star believes Arsenal will fall off the table after the World Cup.
The Gunners are top of the table after beating Leeds 1-0 on Sunday.
And their closest rivals, current champions Man City, are four points behind after losing to Liverpool.
Some predict Mikel Arteta’s men will go all the way after winning nine of their ten games this season.
The Winter World Cup in Qatar poses an interesting dilemma for the title race that will surely leave some players tired.
However, ex-Man United star Neville reckons the tournament will definitely hamper Arsenal’s progress.
And he believes rivals City will feel less of the impact.
Pep Guardiola has a lot of experience when it comes to winning silverware.
Meanwhile, this is Arteta’s first-ever title challenge in the dugout.

And Neville believes Arsenal will slowly fall away as the season progresses, adding that City will “run away with it” once the World Cup is over.
Neville told Sky Sports: “I still think so [City] will [run away with it].
“I don’t think that changes today, this is a freak game at Anfield and I think for City it’s the toughest game they have.
“I still think City will run away with that. I think Arsenal will come back towards Tottenham, Chelsea, Man United, Newcastle and I think City will kind of walk away.
“This season is also a very different season, after the World Cup it could be very different than it is now.”
