Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard have both predicted which teams will secure the top four finish in the Premiere League this season. And as per them, Arsenal and Liverpool will be missing out. The pundits have made their predictions after a dramatic night of Chelsea’s marvellous home defeat of 3-0 against Bournemouth. This didn’t shake their belief that the reigning champions would snatch a top four spot to qualify for next seasons Champions League.
Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard believe that Tottenham will secure a place in the Champions League football for a third successful season after their impressive win of 2-0 against Manchester United at Wembley. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, has inspired Lampard to leave them out of his picks and to join the champions-elect Manchester City in the top four.
According to Lampard, he doesn’t think that Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea have dealt with their weaknesses yet. Rio Ferdinand, the Manchester United legend followed Lampard’s lead as he picked his top four teams while he suggested that Eden Hazard could save a Chelsea season that is in danger of unravelling Antonio Conte sniping at the club’s transfer policy.
Ferdinand stated that he’d go for Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United and would throw Chelsea in there. He also thinks that Eden Hazard will have an effect on Chelsea by keeping them over the line if he stays fit. He also stated that he thinks Liverpool will miss out, as he thinks their goal keepers are not strong enough and that’s what will keep them down.
Manchester United are now three points ahead of Liverpool in third, who are themselves on join points with Chelsea in fourth. Tottenham are positioned in fifth but are only two points away from the top four and are the only top six club unbeaten in their last five games. Meanwhile, Arsenal are six points behind Tottenham in fifth and eight points behind Chelsea in fourth. Giving them the need for an incredibly strong finish to secure a spot in the Champions League.
It looks like the race to finish the top four will last until the final game of the season, while two Premiere League legends have predicted a difficult finish to the end of the season for Liverpool and Arsenal. Klopp’s side are currently third while the duo has said that they will miss out on an automatic qualification into the Champions League.
