The race for the 2018/19 Premier League Golden Boot is wide open with six players separated by only three goals.
Aubameyang is in the hunt to finish top scorer in his first full season in the competition.
Neville believes the Gabon international has benefited from being one of the only contenders for the award to regularly play with a strike partner.
"With Aubameyang playing slightly to the left-hand side it's allowed him to drift in sometimes unmarked."
Even though Neville thinks he will fall short of this season's prize, Aubameyang may well be licking his lips ahead of Arsenal's run-in.
That's because in matches against their remaining opponents this season, the 29-year-old has scored an impressive seven times.
If he can replicate those numbers the 2016/17 Bundesliga top scorer could end 2018/19 as the Premier League's best.
