The Blues are on fire this season and currently boast a six point lead at the summit of the Premier League table.
The Italian has turned things around at Stamford Bridge after the Blues’ dismal Premier League title defence last campaign which saw them finish 10th.
“They have got the mental strength”
Gary Neville on Chelsea
And pundit Neville reckons Chelsea’s title experience mixed with their Christmas run of fixtures will work in their favour this season.
“They have got the mental strength,” said Neville.
“If they steer clear of injuries, they’ve got a great fixture programme over Christmas, they’ve got players who’ve won the league before, they’ve got a lot going for them.
“Does that mean to say I’m sure they’ll win the league? No.
“There are still too many variables for me. But I like what I am seeing from them, they are playing well, I like watching them and they have a really good balance.”
