Jose Mourinho’s men are flying high at the top of the Premier League table after an unbeaten start to the season left the Blues five points clear of defending champions Manchester City.
It’ll be their toughest game and Jose Mourinho would know that
Louis van Gaal’s side made a stuttering start to the season but moved up to fourth place thanks to a 2-1 win over Everton before the international break.
And former United defender Neville believes that the Red Devils have what it takes to beat the table-toppers at Old Trafford on 26 October.
“I’ve watched a lot of City and Chelsea, and Chelsea are the best team by a long way,” Neville told United’s website.
“”Make no mistake about that. But I’d like to think United are always the club that can beat a big team.
“Even in seasons when we weren’t great, like in the mid-2000s, I always felt we could upset Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ and Chelsea – I think Darren Fletcher scored one year when Mourinho was manager.
“I look at the game in two weeks’ time and United will be up for it. Chelsea will have been in Europe that week and, for me, United will cause Chelsea big problems.
“It’ll be their toughest game and Jose Mourinho would know that.”
