Manchester United legend Gary Neville wants Chelsea to beat Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday because it will improve the Premier League title race.

Liverpool hold a five-point lead over Pep Guardiolas side following Manchester Citys 3-2 defeat to Norwich City last Saturday.

Sundays trip to west London is Liverpools first on the road against another member of the top six this season.

Jurgen Klopps men only won one of their six away encounters last season against members of the top six which came against Tottenham in the early weeks of the season.

Liverpool, of course, lost the title race by one point and Neville says a win for Chelsea will make the race more interesting this year.

Sunday is a big game. The last two years have been completely unique in terms of title-winning seasons, said Neville on Friday Night Football.



City have been incredible, Liverpool have been playing title-winning football for 18 months and it would be nice to see them drop points.

Not for personal reasons, but to actually see City and Liverpool drop points, it would make it more of a dramatic season where teams can get points of each other. Thats whats made the Premier League famous all around the world.

Liverpool lost the league by a point last season and you look at where they slipped up, but they only lost one game, said Carragher.
