Gary Neville hailed a massive victory for Chelsea after the Blues took a huge stride towards winning the Premier League title with a 3-0 triumph at Everton on Sunday.

Second-half goals from Pedro Rodriguez, Gary Cahill and Willian helped to wrap up the three points for Antonio Conte’s men and take them a significant step closer towards winning the title this season.

The victory left them seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham ahead of Spurs’ clash with Arsenal later in the day.

And former Manchester United defender Neville talked up the importance of Sunday’s win for the west London side.

Speaking during Sky Sports‘ coverage of the game, Neville said: “It’s a huge, huge victory.

“It was the biggest challenge, the biggest hurdle on Chelsea’s fixture list, and they overcame it. Antonio Conte knows how big it is.”
