Paul Merson predicts the Premier League top four…and it’s very bold

Big call!

We wouldn’t go putting any money on Paul Merson’s predictions for the top four.

The pundit has made an incredible claim about how the Premier League table will look come next May and we just can’t see it happening.

Merse reckons Manchester United, who are currently camped in fourth spot, will drop out of the top four by the end of the season.

That’s not too crazy a shout because a poor run of form could easily see that happen but Merson’s expectations of Chelsea are a little bit off-the-wall.

The Blues are struggling in 16th place but Merson can see the reigning champions, who are 13 points off the pace of the top four, turning it all around.

Merson obviously didn’t see this Opta stat on just how much work Chelsea have to do even to make top 6.

Merson’s predicted top four. 

  1. Manchester City
  2. Arsenal
  3. Spurs
  4. Chelsea

So Leicester aren’t going to win the Premier League? We’re not having that for a second.
