Gary Neville makes prediction about Chelsea and Liverpool’s title hopes

Gary Neville says Chelsea are the slight favourites to win the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool

Gary Neville believes that Chelsea are the slight favourites to win the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool this season.

The Blues have been in fine form in recent weeks and continued their impressive run with a thumping 5-0 win over Everton at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Liverpool have also caught the eye in the Premier League and Jurgen Klopp’s men are top of the table after having thrashed Watford 6-1 at Anfield on Sunday.

Former Manchester United defender Neville accepts that it is difficult to predict which team will pull out in front after just 11 games of the new season.

However, the ex-England international has clearly been very impressed by what he has seen from Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side in recent weeks, with the Blues having thrashing Manchester United 4-0 at Stamford Bridge last month.

Speaking in an interview with Metro, Neville said: “Those two teams [Chelsea and Liverpool] at the moment are probably the ones on everyone’s tongue but at this moment in time I couldn’t say wholly that I trust them to continue pushing it through.

“If anything at the moment I’d say Chelsea more than Liverpool but I wouldn’t rule out Arsenal or Man City either. It’s so open and so early I don’t think you can even say.”
