GARY NEVILLE will keep questioning Arsenal's title chances because they're yet to prove themselves at the business end of the season.
Mikel Arteta's men returned to the top of the Premier League following an impressive 1-0 victory at Chelsea on Sunday.

If the Gunners beat Wolves on Saturday they will head into the World Cup leading the way and remain on course for a first title since 2003-2004.
Despite their outstanding start to the campaign, which has seen them drop just five points in 13 games, Neville still has doubts.
"We have to question them," Neville told the Sky Sports Premier League podcast.

"You have to question them. But what you cannot question is, that was a really, really good performance.
"We've seen over the last few years – this Arsenal group of players have found it more difficult in the last part of season. It's not overly negative. Let's see what happens in 20 games' time.

"They've got to show us as the season keeps on into January, February. That's when the interesting times will start to happen. I'm getting more confident by the week for them.
"But I don't think we're wrong to question that they haven't proven they can deal with the business end of the season."
