Sky Sports pundit and Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes that Chelsea’s lack of European football gives the clubs the edge over rivals and that could be enough to see them come out on top come May. He believes that Chelsea and Liverpool have the edge over other title rivals.
“I think the fact that Chelsea have free weeks, and don’t have the confusion and disruption of European football, even though it is a good disruption being in the Champions League or Europa League, it gives them a big advantage,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“It will be an advantage,” added the Englishman. “I think Tottenham are as good as Liverpool, I think Tottenham are as good as Chelsea, there’s no doubt.
“But because Spurs are in European competition I would put Chelsea and Liverpool ahead of them in the Premier League for that reason.”
