Gary Neville is still expecting to see Chelsea win the Premier League title ahead of Tottenham this season despite the weekend’s results.

Chelsea saw their lead cut at the top of the table down to seven points after they suffered a shock defeat by Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge and Tottenham were 2-0 winners at Burnley.

The results will have given Tottenham renewed hope of catching Chelsea in the race for the Premier League title this season.

Chelsea are aiming to get back to winning ways when they take on Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, while Spurs are preparing for their Premier League trip to Swansea City in midweek.

However, former Manchester United defender Neville is still expecting to see Chelsea win the Premier League ahead of Tottenham this season.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ on Monday morning, Neville said: “They [Tottenham] are a young team with no experience of winning Premier League titles.

“I love the job that Mauricio Pochettino does, I love the team and the way they play. Their budget is nowhere near the others at the top of the league.

“I’d love to see them challenge Chelsea and push them towards the line, for us and for the league in general. Can they? Harry Kane is back in a couple of weeks. The drop between Tottenham’s first XI and beneath makes it difficult.

“I’m not quite sure they can mount a challenge for Chelsea this season. I hope they can but I’m not quite sure they’ll be able to do it, they’re too far away. You’ve got to remember Tottenham have to play some tough games as well.”
