- Match Analysis
These days, any of the top six teams in the Premier League can easily make the top four Champions league places in the league given the amount of money involved.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all strong contenders every year for a top four finish.
And legends Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand have both agreed on their top four predictions (okay so there’s obviously going to be some bias there from them).
Ferdinand and Lampard both picked Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and surprisingly Tottenham as the top four teams.
Ferdinand said: “I’d go Man City, Manchester United, Spurs and I think I’ll put Chelsea in there.The Eden Hazard effect I think if he continues to perform, if he stays fit, I think he’ll carry them [Chelsea] into the top four.”
Asked why Liverpool missed out, Ferdinand said: ‘I think defensively, goalkeeper, I don’t think they’re strong enough at the moment. Going forward they’re fantastic, great to watch, I just think they won’t have enough defensively.”
While Lampard was short and sweet with his assessment; “Man City are a shoe in, we can forget about them. Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham.”
