Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville predict Premier League high 4
Both Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville have predicted Liverpool will keep their Premier League title this season.
The Reds lead the Premier League table after 14 games, and both Sky Sports experts believe Jürgen Klopp’s team would run away with the title again.
However, the race for the top 4 is extremely competitive this season. At least eight teams fight for their way. Leicester, Everton, Southampton, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are all separated by fine dot borders.
Carragher and Neville have predicted that both Manchester clubs – Manchester City and Manchester United – will “definitely” finish in the top three.
Neville believes fourth place is up for grabs and there could be tough competition between Chelsea and Spurs to secure last spot in the Champions League.
“I think City and United are definitely going to end up in the top 3. The last one … I think it would be Chelsea or Tottenham, it’s a coin toss to be honest,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
Carragher also thinks that Manchester United have enough depth and quality on their side and that the Red Devils should be in the top three. He believes Chelsea will oust Spurs for fourth place.
The former Liverpool defender said: “Yes, I think United will do it. I think they have a lot of attacking power, think it’s fantastic. Actually, I looked at the bench against Leeds over the weekend … they have a really strong squad. Manchester United, you always want them to really score goals in games. I think they would be there. “
Manchester United have made a strong recovery in the league after a stuttering start to the season. Although they sometimes seem like a team in desperate need of surgery, the Red Devils have done really well in recent games.
They have won six of their last seven Premier League games and could be just two points behind Liverpool if they win their game in hand.
On top of that, United can prepare well for a real Premier League title challenge eliminated from the Champions League group stage. Even so, it’s a bold prediction by both experts.
City are now eight points behind the Reds after playing less. Pep Guardiola’s side have struggled for consistency, but given the quality of the game they are likely to be in the top four too.
