EPL: Matt Le Tissier identifies clubs to finish top-four this season

Sky Sports pundit, and former Southampton midfielder, Matt Le Tissier has identified Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as teams to finish top-four in the Premier League this season.

According to Le Tissier, the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal will miss out on the top-four finish in this campaign.

City, Liverpool and Chelsea are currently joint-top on the log this term with goals difference separating the three clubs.

“I think I will go with Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs for the top four,” Le Tissier told Sky Sports.

“As long as Christian Eriksen doesn’t spend to long out of the team for Tottenham… because I think they miss him quite a bit.

“Manchester United have got some ground to make up if they are going to be in contention.”

He added: “I still think Manchester City will win the title.

“They have so much quality and strength in depth and over the course of the season that will give them the edge.

“Even without someone who was considered to be their best player last season in Kevin De Bruyne, they’re still sitting top of the table after eight games.

“Many people thought they were going to miss him a lot and obviously that quality of player is going to be a bit of a miss.

“But their strength in depth is just incredible and what they’ve got in terms of quality forward players and being able to hurt teams in different areas of the pitch.

“They should be a couple of points clear but Riyad Mahrez’s penalty against Liverpool was an absolute shocker.

“I don’t think they will win it by 19 points again like last season but I’d expect Man City to win it by a handful of points.”
