Arsenal fans want Neville banned

Neville's commentary, which aimed a dig at the Gunners, saw one angry supporter launch a Twitter campaign calling for the banning of the former defender from Arsenal games.

"Like this tweet if you would sign a petition to have @GNev2 banned from commentating on Arsenal games," the Twitter user posted.

The tweet went viral and finally caught the attention of Neville, who responded that he would sign it, before adding that he felt he was fair in his commentary during the match.

However, a number of Arsenal fans still disagreed with the assertion, with one saying:

"Fair? You must be joking Gary."

Another commented:

"Lmao this guy likes gaslighting."

Be that as it may, there are those who agreed with Neville, with one adding:

"Neville is spot on. Arsenal fans being far too sensitive here."

Nketiah warns Premier League defenders

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Nketiah sending a cheeky message to Premier League defenders, after his heroics versus Man United.

The striker, deputizing for the injured Gabriel Jesus, has scored in every game except versus Newcastle since he was trusted to lead the Gunners' line.

He drew Arsenal level in the recent game and also narrowly beat the offside trap to score the winner in the 90th minute.
