Manchester United legend Gary Neville is adamant Chelsea can win the Premier League title this season after Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Brentford.
According to Neville, other teams will dread playing against Chelsea because the Blues are ‘resilient’ and ‘tough to play against’.
Ben Chilwell’s excellent finish on the stroke of half-time and Edouard Mendy’s masterclass in goal earned Chelsea all three points against Brentford.
Neville said: “I think Chelsea can win the title. I know people say City and Liverpool, you can’t disagree with that after what they’ve done over these last three of four years.
“City’s performance at Chelsea a couple of weeks ago was incredible. But I do think this Chelsea team are resilient and they’re tough to play against.
“I can’t think that any team in the league would like to play against them. That was a Chelsea team that had players missing as well, they’ve got so many players to come back.
“I think they’re in with a great shout of winning the title, I really do.”
