Manchester United legend Gary Neville has selected his Team of the Year for this campaign. The now Sky Sports pundit, who has gained quite the reputation in the world of media, has picked as many as seven Chelsea stars in his side, reports the Telegraph.
Chelsea, of course, under the guidance of Jose Mourinho, have enjoyed quite the campaign, currently sitting comfortably at the top of the division.
There's no doubt about it, despite still having eight league games to play, the Blues look set to secure the title sooner rather than later.

With a seven point lead - and a game in hand - over rivals Arsenal, they will take some stopping in the run in. And Neville has clearly been impressed with the Chelsea side, however he hasn't opted for the club's shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois as his shot-stopper.
In fact, Neville has picked Spanish international David de Gea as his No.1, while he's opted for a back-four of Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Jose Fonte, Branislav Ivanovic. Fonte, of Southampton, is the only man outside of Stamford Bridge to make his defence.

The Blues dominate the midfield, too, with Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic and Eden Hazard all selected, while Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez, who moved to England from Barcelona this past summer, also makes his team.
Unsurprisingly, he's picked the Premier League's top scorers in attack, with Diego Costa playing alongside Harry Kane.
Gary Neville's Team of the Year
David de Gea, Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Jose Fonte, Branislav Ivanovic, Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic, Eden Hazard, Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa, Harry Kane.
You can hardly blame Neville for filling his side with so many Chelsea stars. At the end of the day, they've been - by a long way - the best side in the division.
Terry looks set to captain his side to league glory once again, while Costa may well end as the division's top scorer. Hazard, meanwhile, has been the talisman for the club this term, and may even pick up the Player of the Year award at the end of the campaign.
The likes of De Gea and Kane will surely be in the running for that same prize, so it's not surprising that they've been included by the former Manchester United man.
