Gary Neville wants to sign petition banning himself from commentating on Arsenal

Gary Neville has joked that he "will sign" a petition to get himself banned from commentating on Arsenal matches moving forward.

The Manchester United legend was in the gantry alongside Martin Tyler for Arsenal's dramatic 3-2 win over the Red Devils at the Emirates on Sunday and obviously managed to rub a fair few Gunners fans up the wrong way with his commentary.

When an Arsenal fan account tweeted: "Like this tweet if you would sign a petition to have @GNev2 banned from commentating on Arsenal games," Neville playfully responded: "I will sign it," before adding that he thought he was "fair" throughout the contest.

Neville's claim that he was unbiased was disputed by a number of Gunners supporters on social media, one of whom accused him of "gaslighting".

"Fair? You must be joking Gary," one fan tweeted. Another agreed saying: "Lmao this guy likes gaslighting."

Others however agreed with Neville and argued that criticism of his commentary was unjust, with one writing: "Neville is spot on. Arsenal fans being far too sensitive here." A second added: "Got to agree with Neville here, was 100% fair. Gave Arsenal credit when they deserved it."

Mikel Arteta's side re-established their five point lead at the top of the Premier League thanks to a 90th-minute Eddie Nketiah winner.

The young striker had initially opened the scoring in the first half, but a stunning Marcus Rashford strike from the edge of the area drew the visitors level. Bukayo Saka then mirrored his England team-mate by firing Arsenal back into the lead from 25-yards out before a Lisandro Martinez equaliser briefly squared things up prior to Nketiah's late strike.

The defeat was United's first in seven league matches, though Erik ten Hag's men remain a reasonably-comfortable six points clear of their nearest top four challengers Tottenham.
