STEVEN GERRARD has weighed in with his views on who will finish in the top four this season.
Gerrard’s former side Liverpool clinched Champions League football last term with a fourth-placed finish in the league.
Chelsea stormed to victory ahead of runners-up Tottenham while Arsenal and Manchester United missed out on a top-four finish.
Many pundits believe United and Manchester City are the frontrunners for the trophy this time around with both clubs having spent big in the transfer window.
And while Gerrard feels Pep Guardiola’s side will be lifting the trophy come May, he reckons Liverpool will have the bragging rights over rivals United.
Asked to predict his top four he put City first, Liverpool second, United third and Chelsea fourth.
On Liverpool, the former Anfield great told BT Sport: “Adam Lallana’s injury is a huge blow because he was a player in great form and confidence.
“But Salah is coming in, Mane back fit and hopefully Coutinho will stay.
“Liverpool look really dangerous on the counter. If they can learn how to break teams down at home and defend a bit better, I think they are a force.”
Gerrard doesn’t think Arsenal or Spurs will secure Champions League football – a view fellow pundit Robbie Savage shares.
