But Blues fans don’t need to worry, the Scot was asked to defend the indefensible.
Speaking to the BBC, the ardent Chelsea fan was given the challenge of coming up with a number of reasons why Antonio Conte’s table toppers will fall away.
“If either of them get injured they’re stuffed”
Nevin told 5Live: “[There is an] over reliance on Diego Cost and Eden Hazard.
“60 per cent of the goals they’ve scored this season have been by those two.
“If either of them get injured they’re stuffed.
“Five of the last six games have been single-goal wins.
“They’re nothing more than lucky.
“Other teams are going to figure out that 3-4-3, every system’s got a weakness.
“They’re going to suffer it in a little while and any team can go on a run.
“Arsenal went 14 games unbeaten recently.
“And by the way, I don’t believe a word of it!”
