Gary Neville reckons that either Manchester United or Manchester City will win the Premier League next season – because Chelsea are set for a “dip”.

The Blues enjoyed a brilliant first season under Antonio Conte last season as they won the title in the Italian’s first campaign in charge at the club.

Manchester United and Manchester City both struggled to find consistent form under new managers Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola.

However, the former Manchester United defender is now expecting one of the two Manchester clubs to win the Premier League title next season, as Chelsea prepare for a return to the Champions League next term.

Neville told Sky Sports: “I said last season that the title would come to Manchester – and I was wrong – but I think this year it will.

“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!

“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.”

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge at the club back in 2013.

The Red Devils will be hoping to challenge next season as they also gear up for a return to the Champions League following their Europa League triumph last season.
