Gary Neville has urged an Arsenal fan to ‘hibernate for the summer’ after they took issue with his criticism of the Gunners.

The Manchester United legend had taken to social media to deliver his damning verdict on Mikel Arteta’s side after they fell to a 3-0 home defeat against Brighton.

That result all-but ended their hopes of winning the Premier League title, with Arsenal now four points behind Manchester City having played a game more.

A big talking point in the media has been the idea that the Gunners have ‘bottled it’ after holding such a dominant lead in the title race, something that Neville believes is the case.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “Arsenal have had a great season but when the going got tough they struggled.

“It seems now the narrative is that it’s City’s strength, injuries and a tough run in is the cause.

“These are normal factors that need pricing into a title race. Arsenal have dropped 12 points in 7 games! Won 9points from a possible 21.

“All the characteristics of it being too much have appeared. Loss of form, giving up leads, energy and legs going, making unforced errors not seen earlier in the season, young players becoming tense and losing their freedom of expression and others showing too much emotion when calmness is needed.

“I understand why we want to use less emotive language in 2023. However in a high performance environment and at elite level we must still recognise when pressure has taken its toll.

“That league table below was only 7 games and 5 weeks ago. I hope these Arsenal players are there again one day (if it’s not United) and can see it through.”

But while one Arsenal fan wasn’t willing to accept Neville’s verdict, the Sky Sports pundit delivered a dismissive response.

He wrote: “Are you the guy that’s been abusing me all season? You should hibernate for the summer and start against next season.”
