Gary Neville thinks he knows what Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka are about to do before Arsenal vs Man City

Arsenal take on Manchester City in the Premier League right after the international break, and Gary Neville has made a prediction about Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka.

The Gunners are currently on top of the Premier League table, a point and two places ahead of Pep Guardiola‘s side

Mikel Arteta will be really pleased with where his side are at the moment, but their biggest game of the season is just over a week away, and they will have to win.

Neville has now made a prediction about Arsenal duo Rice and Saka ahead of the big clash at the Etihad Stadium next weekend.

Gary Neville’s prediction about Bukayo Saka and Declan Rice before Man City vs Arsenal

If you went up to an Arsenal fan and asked them to name their two most important players, many will say Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka.

The midfielder has arguably been the best signing in the Premier League this season. He has barely had a bad game and is among the biggest reasons why the Gunners are where they are.

Saka has had a fantastic season as well. Yes, he didn’t look at his best at the start of the campaign, but his numbers are out of this world. He is the highest-rated player in the entire Premier League at the moment.

The two England stars will be key for Arsenal when they head to the Etihad in a little over a week. Phil Foden will be just as important for Manchester City.

Gary Neville thinks the three of them will either ‘pull out’ or make a ‘deal’ with Gareth Southgate to get a break when England take on Belgium next week.

“I will make a prediction,” he said on Stick to Football.

“Either Declan, Saka, Foden – I have a good feeling they will pull out of the second game. Or they won’t play and Gareth will do a deal with them.”

Where Arsenal and Manchester City were in the table at this stage last season

Arsenal and Manchester City were battling it out for the Premier League title last season, and the two teams are at it again this time around along with Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s side are always the favourites, but Arsenal had a massive chance to get the job done last term.

After 28 games last season, Arsenal were five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. Injuries then cost them and they ended up losing their place.

This season, the Gunners are just a point ahead, but Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side have learnt their lesson and will be able to go all the way.
