Gary Neville is expecting to see Liverpool FC claim all three points when they travel to Chelsea FC in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds head to west London as the only team in the Premier League to have won all five of their opening games as they look to challenge for the title this term.

Liverpool FC are aiming to go one step further than they did last season after they finished second and just a point behind champions Manchester City.

Chelsea FC, meanwhile, are looking to make it back to back wins in the top flight for the first time this season after they were 5-2 winners at Wolves last weekend.

Former Manchester United defender Neville has talked up the importance of Sunday’s game for both teams – and has admitted that he expects to see the Reds shade it.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville said: “Sunday is a big game.

“The last two years have been completely unique in terms of title-winning seasons. City have been incredible, and Liverpool have been playing title-winning football for 18 months and it would be nice to see them [both] drop points.

“Not for personal reasons, but to actually see City and Liverpool drop points, it would make it more of a dramatic season where teams can get points off each other. That’s what’s made the Premier League famous all around the world.

“I still think Liverpool need to win a Premier League title – it is essential that they do that, particularly with this team that they’ve got now.

“I don’t know how any team can handle that front three. They are absolutely magnificent.

“From a Chelsea point of view, they’re going to struggle so they need to score goals. It’s a really intriguing game – but I think Liverpool will win on Sunday.”

Liverpool FC won their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp last season when they beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the Champions League final.

Chelsea FC, meanwhile, finished in third place in the Premier League table and won the Europa League under Maurizio Sarri last term.
