Their performances have impressed the former Manchester United defender, who has predicted Mikel Arteta’s side will lift the trophy in May.
Speaking on Sky Sports ahead of Sunday’s North London derby, Neville explained: “Arsenal, I think, I’ve got them down as title winners this season, which is ambitious.
“An ambitious prediction but I just feel there’s something here.”
Neville also went on to add: “Mikel Arteta knows he’s got a very strong squad.”
His backing of Arsenal has gone down well with their fans on social media.
One supporter reacted by tweeting: “Gary Neville is now making sense.”
Another added: “Wow Gary is saving himself early on this one.”
A third fan also wrote: “Blud realised Man U are bums.”
Meanwhile, one more commented: “He used to be a hater Gary, it’s good you finally fell in love with Arsenal, best club in the world.”
Neville had angered Arsenal fans last season for doubting their title chances.
The Gunners topped the table for large parts of the campaign as they challenged Manchester City for the title.
However, City ultimately went on to clinch the league by five points on their way to an historic treble.

Arsenal have made a strong start to the new season, though, avoiding defeat in their first five league matches.
They also took the lead against Tottenham on Sunday thanks to Cristian Romero’s own goal.
Spurs pegged their rivals back before half-time, however, with Son Heung-min getting on the scoresheet.
