Man Utd captain Neville will not write-off Arsenal title chances

Manchester United captain Gary Neville believes their clash with Chelsea at Old Trafford will be decision in the title race.

In his column for the Sunday Times of Malta, Neville wrote: "We played most of the match against Aston Villa with 10 men, but I thought we actually looked like the only team that could win the match. We were dangerous at set pieces and were dangerous when we attacked. We drew the match but we closed the gap on Chelsea to one point.

"We still have to play against Chelsea in April but the way things are going this season, teams are dropping points in between. We have to play Liverpool, Manchester City, Everton and Tottenham and we've got to make sure we do our job in all the games.

"History has always shown that two teams are practically always involved in the final race to the league. I don't know if that's already the case since Arsenal are still in with a chance to catch up with us. Once we get into March and April, the race usually boils down to two.

"People were saying we were facing a crisis four weeks ago. But we've been round the block too many times to show the crisis doesn't come in January; the crisis happens in May. The teams are still jockeying for positions and we still have a lot of hard work to do."
