Man City will finish second, Arsenal fourth – Brad Friedel predicts top-four
The teams to finish in the top four of the Premier League standings this season have been predicted by former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Brad Friedel.
Arsenal will come in at number four, according to Friedel, while reigning Premier League champion Manchester City will come in at number two.
He predicts Liverpool will win the championship this year and Chelsea will come in third.
Asked for his opinion on the Premier League title race this season, Friedel told Ladbrokes, “Man City are favorites, but I am going to go with Liverpool. I think they are going to get some things together and make a run for it.
“It is so hard to come off the back of winning a triple and go out challenging on all fronts without some mental fatigue creeping in there.
“Even though Pep [Guardiola] is just incredible, I am going to say Liverpool win it, then they will be followed by Man City in second and Chelsea in third.
“As for fourth place, you’ve got a few teams who will fancy themselves to sneak in there. You are looking at the likes of Manchester United and Newcastle, but I will put Arsenal in fourth place, and Man United just missed out.”
