Neville tipped the Blues to have a fair chance at challenging Manchester City as they have a better squad than Liverpool. He expects manager Thomas Tuchel to do better. He further added:

“I’m not that disappointed with Liverpool, to be honest, because I think they have to be at full-pelt all the time to get [alongside] City, just for the fact they haven’t got the squad that City have got.

“But I do think the Blues have and I expect it to get close. I don’t expect this runaway lead.”
