Tuchel’s side reached at the top of the Premier League table after a 1-0 win against Brentford.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville backed Chelsea to win the Premier League title. He believes Chelsea are right in the hunt to win the Premier League. Tuchel’s side reached at the top of the Premier League table after a 1-0 win against Brentford. The Blues have won six matches out of eight matches and kept clean sheets in five matches.
Neville told Sky Sports, “I think Chelsea can win the title. I know people will say Manchester City or Liverpool and you can’t disagree with that given what they’ve done over the last three or four years.
“City’s performance at Chelsea a few weeks ago was incredible, but I do feel this Chelsea team are resilient and are tough to play against. I can’t think that any team in the league would like to play against them,” He also added.
“I know Brentford have enjoyed the last 10 to 15 minutes, but this was a tough game for them for the first 70-80 minutes. They couldn’t get into it, they had to change and they had a bit of joy at the end.
“That was a Chelsea team that had a few players missing as well, and they’ve got so many to come back. They had so many good players coming off the bench too, so I feel they’ve got a great shout of winning the title.”
He also talked about City and said, “You’d have to still say Manchester City are the favourites for the title, and I picked them at the start of the season. But Chelsea have played Arsenal, Tottenham, City and Liverpool and only lost once. They’re top of the league despite having a really tough start.”
