Manchester United legend Gary Neville says Arsenal prepare for big matches as though they are playing an 11 a side pick-up match in the park.
In what many Arsenal fans see as a must win match if they are to have any hope of winning the Premiership title following a dreadful performance against Olympiacos in the Champions League midweek which ended in a shock 3-2 loss for the home side, the Gunners really must get a win on Sunday if they are to silence the increasing amount of Wenger out fans at the Emirates.
‘[Arsenal] don’t prepare for a big game like it’s a big game. I used the words arrogance and naivety earlier in the season,’ Neville told Sky Sports.
“They prepare for a big game like they’re going out to play a game of football in the park.
‘What about attention to detail? What about respecting your opposition whereby you might have to change something yourself? I think they go out thinking about wonderful passing, how they’re going to nutmeg someone or score a great goal.
‘I never see anything different with Arsenal. It’s a wonderfully pure theory around football; its fantastic morals and principles but if it doesn’t work you have to challenge it.’
