Jesus, Gary Neville, tell us how you really feel about Arsenal

Did he go too far?

Manchester City have won their first trophy under Pep Guardiola.

City beat Arsenal 3-0 at Wembley to win the Carabao Cup. Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva got the goals, as the Premier League leaders made light work of the Gunners.

Guardiola’s side dominated the second-half, and Arsenal’s performance was torn to shreds by Gary Neville.

The former Manchester United defender was on commentary duty for Sky Sports, and spent most of the game criticising Arsenal’s display. Neville took aim at Shkodran Mustafi for his role in Aguero’s goal in the first-half. The German defender, who played under Neville at Valencia, failed to deal with Claudio Bravo’s long kick, allowing Aguero to get goal side of him and nudge him out of the way.

The Argentine striker then lobbed the ball over David Ospina for one of the softest goals you’ll ever see in a cup final. Neville labelled Mustafi’s defending as “pathetic”, “terrible” and “woeful.” If that wasn’t enough, he also called it “schoolboy stuff” from the World Cup winner.

But Neville was only warming up. As City took control of the match in the second half, and the game got away from Arsenal, Neville slaughtered their performance, calling it “disgraceful.”

He also hit out at the Arsenal players for walking when City had the ball.

Silva scored City’s third goal in the 65th minute. From that point to the final whistle, Neville criticised Arsenal, expressing disgust for their meek performance.
