Arsenal themselves have not qualified for the Champions League since 2016 and could miss out on European football full stop this season.

Gary Neville, who gave a passionate response to the plans, hit out at the Gunners who failed to beat relegation-threatened Fulham on Sunday.

He said: “Manchester United aren’t even in the Champions League, neither are Arsenal – you watched them earlier today, they’re an absolute shambles of a football club at the moment,

He continued: “Give the title to Burnley, Fulham. Let Fulham stay up and relegate United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

“Those three clubs, to be fair, are the history of this country. They’re the ones that should suffer most.”
