Manchester United’s final position has been predicted ahead of the new season.
The Red Devils have had an exciting summer so far, spending big to land the likes of Andre Onana, Rasmus Hojlund and Mason Mount. Erik ten Hag led United to a big step forward last season, and he will be expected to do the same this term, especially given the level of investment in his squad.
Though, it will prove a tough task this season, with Chelsea and Liverpool looking to have a resurgence, while Newcastle United, Tottenham and even Aston Villa are likely to be serious top six - and possibly top four - candidates.
Still, United legend Neville is backing his old club for a third place finish. He told The Overlap: “I don’t look at Liverpool at the moment and think, ‘wow they’re going to be challenging for the league’, I don’t look at United with what they’ve done so far.
“So unless United, Liverpool or Chelsea do something miraculous in the next few weeks in the transfer window, Arsenal are for me are the only team that could challenge City at this moment in time. And I think they could get very close to them, but I still would go City, just.”
He added: “Just because of the three thing and never winning a fourth, I am going to go Arsenal to win the league, I’m going to go City second.“If I was putting my life on it I’d put City, but I’m just going to go Arsenal.
“I think Arsenal can beat them this year. Arsenal, City, Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea, [Aston] Villa.”
As for Jamie Carragher, the former Liverpool favourite is tipping a fourth place finish for Ten Hag’s men. He said: “I’ll go Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham.”
