Chelsea the team to beat in the Premier League, says Man Utd great Gary Neville.

Former Manchester United right-back Gary Neville says Chelsea will start the new campaign as title favourites despite their rivals strengthening their respective sides.

To get the Premier League title in the 2015/16 season, you have to go past Jose Mourinho's team - who finished the previous season eight points clear of Manchester City to become champions - according to the United legend, and that definitely isn't going to be an easy task.

Arsenal, Man City, Man Utd and Liverpool are keen to close the gap on Chelsea but Neville has no doubt the Blues will be favourites when the season kicks off.

"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 now, 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."
