After defeating Southampton 2-0 on Sunday courtesy goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, Chelsea became the only team to beat Southampton at the St. Mary’s this season.
Former Manchester United player Gary Neville insists Chelsea can win the title this season after keeping a fourth clean sheet in a row.
“The very, very top teams make the fewest mistakes and that was a team performance today (Sunday) of no mistakes,” Gary Neville said on Sky Sports Gary Neville Podcast.
“That clean sheet mentality has definitely been forced into them. It’s a way of being, it builds so much confidence. When the goalkeeper and defenders are happy, when they are comfortable and relaxed, the crowd aren’t getting anxious.
“I’m seeing Chelsea players do the right things, staying with their runners and they’ve got two very, very good central midfield players from a defensive point of view, they’ve got a wonderful ability to read the game and fill in the gaps.
“Are they the finished article? Probably not but I wouldn’t rule them out of the title because I don’t trust the others enough to think that Chelsea can’t win it.”
