Former Manchester United player, Gary Neville has admit that Chelsea will be very difficult to stop in the Premier League title race this season.
Thomas Tuchel side are now seen as a major threat not only in the English Premier League but in World football with their current squad dept.
With the addition of Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez, Chelsea have now strengthen their squad more and are capable of winning the EPL these season as no team is ready to face the London Club.
The Blues earned a 1-1 draw away at Liverpool last Saturday despite having to play the second half with 10 men, with Reece James handed a first half red card.
Chelsea FC made a strong start to their campaign amazing a total of seven points from nine with a win against Arsenal and Crystal Palace.
Neville says he has been impressed by what he has seen from the Blues so far and he thinks that they will be one of the main contenders for the title.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville said of Chelsea FC: “They are a strong team.
“I’ve watched them twice already this season, away at Arsenal and away at Anfield.
“That is a really good team, a team that wins and is ready to win more.
“When they went down to 10 men at Anfield, I never really thought it was going to be easy for Liverpool to break Chelsea down in the second half. That’s when you know you are playing against a good team because that’s the toughest place to play.
“And the addition of Saul along with Romelu Lukaku makes them stronger and stronger and stronger.
“In the midfield with Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic they already look really strong.
“You only need two in there with the way they play but Saul’s addition means they can challenge on all fronts. It strengthens them enormously and makes them more formidable than they were at Anfield last Saturday.”
Neville continued: “You could argue that Chelsea may be a bit light at the back, but what they do have is a system of playing with those two players sat in front of that back three that makes them solid.
“So what Thomas Tuchel has done since he’s come in is maybe recognise that they can’t be a back four.
“If you were looking at them as a pair of centre-backs you wouldn’t be sure about them winning the league, but with the three they have at the back, and sometimes it becomes a five with the two protecting in front, Chelsea are more than comfortable.
“They’ve got a system of playing that protects the individuals from potentially being isolated and that now, with the confidence and the belief they have when you win a Champions League like they did last season and with the business they have done in the transfer window, they are going to be very difficult to stop.”
Chelsea will return to Premier League action on Saturday 11 September, as they take on Aston Villa at home after the international break.
