And, when asked about the two sides' titanic clash at Anfield in two weeks' time on Sky Sports, Neville revealed his displeasure at seeing two of United's great rivals battling it out at the top of the league.
“[Head to head] for the title? It's like having a choice of two blokes to nick your wife!” he joked.
On a more serious note, Neville cast doubt on Chelsea's challenge in the wake of their shock loss at Selhurst Park, claiming their depleted forward line is “costing them a little bit.”
“I think Chelsea at this moment in time, that pain of the forward is costing them a little bit,” he said “and you just wonder whether they can get back from where they were on Saturday and losing at Palace.”
