Manchester United legend Gary Neville barely has positive things to say about Chelsea. The United legend was made to eat his words last season as he predicted that Chelsea won’t win the Premier League.
Even after Chelsea rose from seventh position to the top, Neville didn’t tip Chelsea to win the league until the latter part of the season when it was clear to even someone as young as an infant that Chelsea will become champions of England.
Neville has again re-played his words of last season by giving the Premier League title to either of the Manchester clubs.
“I said last season that the title would come to Manchester and I was wrong — but I think this year it will,” said Neville while speaking on Sky Sports.
“I think Chelsea will dip a little bit. Not in a negative way, but just having the Champions League will bring different challenges. I think Tottenham will be strong, but I feel that either United or City will win it, but I’m not sure who.”
He added: “I say it every year, whoever recruits best wins the league. Chelsea getting N’Golo Kante was a masterstroke and Eden Hazard and Diego Costa came back to form. All the clubs are going for the same players, they’re all expensive and controlled by agents.
“So, whoever has the best relationship, the best contacts and is willing to put the money in will probably do it.”
I love it when they underrate Antonio Conte and his soldiers. The Blues will surely prove them wrong again next season.
