Chelsea won the EPL last season with 8 points and Gary Neville has named them as favourites for the next campaign.
Though Chelsea have not been busy during the transfer window so far, signing Falcao on loan, while their counterparts have been busy.
Still, Neville feels Mourinho’s men can still fend them off and could still perform wonders before the window closes.
“We’re in July when teams haven’t completed their business yet; that’s something I think you’ve got to be very careful about at this stage,” he told Sky Sports News.
“But as I stand here today, I think it would be very difficult to look to past Chelsea. However, who knows what is going to happen in the next month in terms of signings and how those signings will then come in and adapt.
“Things can always happen and you could look at a team in a month’s time and think ‘they’re going to take some stopping with the people they’ve signed’, we haven’t seen the transfer market flush itself out yet.
“But certainly now, without the business having been done, you aren’t as informed as you’d like to be, but Chelsea would be the team to beat and I think everyone would say that.”
