Gary Neville predicts where Man United, Chelsea will finish this season

But Wright said the Blues appeared to be in a worse position compared to last season due to the extent of upheaval in the squad that won the Premier League title. I think he's capable of dropping deep or playing in an old-fashioned midfield two but he can get further forward and I expect him to be more effective this year.

Nemanja Matic made 112 defensive actions in the Premier League last season.

"United were crying out for a central midfielder with the qualities of Nemanja Matic".

As for Valencia, who captained United in Michael Carrick's absence against Real, the incredible physical strength of Lukaku, combined with a good level of footballing intelligence, should give the 24-year-old the platform to have a good season.

"Whether Conte knows something different to us, I don't know", he said.

"You would applaud that but those players aren't even at the club now".

But doubts are creeping in over whether they have enough depth to retain their trophy as well as compete with Europe's elite in the Champions League.

Democrats appear to be playing a unsafe game of using the threat of nuclear war as a way to tear down Trump. I mean, his rhetoric might make Kim Jong Un think that he needs to strike first.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte doesn't want any sympathy
Another pointer towards a low-scoring affair perhaps is the absence of Eden Hazard who will miss the game with an ankle injury. That's not a cop out, it's just how I feel given "form" is the main thinking behind most of my bets.

"I think he brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they have been lacking".

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Tuesday, Neville said: "I said last season that the title will come to Manchester and was badly wrong but I do feel it will be between City and United this time".

"Pogba teased us past year".

"It amazes me, why would you sell Matic to Manchester United? But he is a great loss for us".

"We just develop that and we played in a couple of matches, Sampdoria and I think the LA Galaxy, because it is something during the season we are maybe going to do". He's a very select player who's a top, top striker, but when the position goes so far it's hard to put it back. "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much".

"Once he gets into that, and comfortable with the surroundings - and the magnitude of what's expected of him - he'll be a good signing".
