SkySports Pundit and Premier League title winner no less than eight times himself, Gary Nevillebelieves that Chelsea overcame their final hurdle of the season with the 3-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.
Looking at our remaining fixtures before the game, Everton stood out as the most difficult having won their last eight games in a row at home.
So to Gary Neville and his opinion of the title race. Speaking on his published Podcast he said:
“There are always big moments in the season but when we look back, I think Chelsea’s win at Everton will be regarded as the final hurdle.
I know they’ve got to get over the line but just look at the fixtures they have.
The game didn’t materialise as I thought it would. I’ve played and worked at Goodison Park and seen a hostile atmosphere develop to where it could become quite intense.
Frank Lampard mentioned the word ’emotion’ in these types of games at Goodison Park, but it was a flat day. The performance of Everton never really connected with their fans, which suited Chelsea to play at a slower pace. The game drifted apart from the first 10 minutes. But Pedro’s goal changed the game. Chelsea controlled it from there.
You could see from the celebrations from the Chelsea staff and players how big of a result that was.” – Source: London Evening Standard.
