“At the start of the season everyone got asked who they thought would win the league and I said Man United.

“By the way when he makes his first big mistake, which could be any minute now, you will see it all over every television station and they will forget the fact they won 11 games in a row.”

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Boxing Day against Bournemouth.

The Blues will be confident of winning the title as the previous four times they have been top at Christmas they have gone on to lift the trophy.
