No one gave Chelsea a chance at the start of the season with most pundits claiming Chelsea will just finish in a top four position and return to the Champions League next season. No one expected Chelsea will be 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League with 12 games left to play.
Chelsea’s title charge has been built on a solid attack and a tight defence and Manchester United legend Gary Neville has revealed he has been impressed with our three central defenders and two wing-backs this season.
“The reason I didn’t think Chelsea would win the league this year is [David] Luiz,” Neville is quoted on Daily Express.
“Could he settle back into the Premier League, how could he not give goals away, how could he not make mistakes? [But] he’s a fantastic player and character.
“Azpilicueta had fallen off in the last year. Gary Cahill, you didn’t know whether he would partner Luiz.
“Alonso, we’ve not seen too much of him, he was at Bolton but we didn’t know how he would settle. Moses is a complete shock.
“Those five had huge question marks about them. The fact that they have done well has just shocked and surprised everybody.”
