Man Utd legend Neville slams Spurs - and Arsenal

Manchester United legend Gary Neville slammed Tottenham's defending for their 5-2 defeat at Arsenal.

Neville also wasn't overly impressed by Arsenal.

He wrote in the Mail on Sunday: "Even with 10 men, you would have expected them to be tighter and more solid in the 20-minute spell before half-time in which they conceded three goals.

"Sending-offs happen. You can't just accept that it's game over at that point. You have to stay strong and stay in the game.

"Even though Tottenham did well in the second half and showed some guts in the way they played, going to a back three, I don't think their fans will be fooled by Villas-Boas's comments that they controlled the game.

"And although Arsenal will, of course, be happy with an important win for the club, there still isn't a conviction about this team that you would expect to see."
