Speaking after the game, Neville said: ‘I think Chelsea can win the title. I know people say City and Liverpool, you can’t disagree with that after what they’ve done over these last three of four years. 

‘City’s performance at Chelsea a couple of weeks ago was incredible. But I do think this Chelsea team are resilient and they’re tough to play against. 

‘I can’t think that any team in the league would like to play against them. That was a Chelsea team that had players missing as well, they’ve got so many players to come back.
