Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has predicted that Chelsea and Arsenal will finish outside the top four places this season.
Ferdinand believes Manchester City will win the league ahead of Liverpool.
According to him, Tottenham will finish third, leaving Chelsea and Arsenal outside of the Champions League places.
“A subplot to those two trying to win the league is between Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs – and possibly Arsenal – for those third and fourth spots.
“I think that’s going to be a great race, as well.
“I’m sure someone from out of the pack will come up and jump into that area as well, like we saw with West Ham last season. It’s going to be interesting. I think it [the top six in order] will go Man City, Liverpool, Spurs, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal,” Ferdinand said according to BT Sport.
