The Blues have lost some ground in the title race after they dropped points again on Sunday, December 19, after they were held to a goalless draw at Wolves.

The Stamford Bridge dwellers had requested the postponement of the fixture after they were hit by COVID-19 but the Premier League rejected the request.

The draw at Wolves saw Chelsea fall six points behind league leaders Man City who seem to be out to take full control for the title race.

The Blues' dip in form come just weeks after they had emerged as favourites to win the domestic crown after becoming early pacesetters at the top.

And when asked if Tuchel is under pressure after the frustrating run of results, Neville noted the tactician has "some credit in the bank."

"I know it’s a club that does things very differently, but I’d hate to think that Thomas Tuchel is under pressure and they’re thinking of making a change, I can’t believe that to be the case," Neville told Sky Sports.

However, the former England international was quick to admit the former PSG boss must be "a little worried."

"I think he’ll be a little bit worried. I think mentally when you try to get a game called off and you’re then told to play it, I can’t think that will help the mindset in that game," he added.

Man City backed to retain EPL

Earlier, Legit.ng reported former Chelsea star Tony Cascarino has backed Man City to retain their Premier League title this season.

City are among the frontrunners for the domestic title this term but will be wary of stiff competition from Liverpool and Chelsea.

While there is little separating the three frontrunners, Cascarino contends City are on course to retaining the Premier League crown.
