Jamie Redknapp makes his first Premier League prediction after Man Utd and Chelsea win


Jamie Redknapp believes Manchester United and Chelsea will finish in the top four of the Premier League this season. Both clubs won Saturday in what threatened to be a big day in the Champions League one-place race, United seeing Bournemouth 5-2 at Old Trafford and Chelsea on their way to a 3-0 victory over Watford at Stamford Bridge.

However, victories for Leicester at home against Crystal Palace and Arsenal outside the Wolves, sixth, also kept them in the race for the champions behind Liverpool and possibly the Manchester City finalists.

Leicester currently ranks third with 58 points, ahead of Chelsea, fourth, with 57 points, then Manchester United, with 55 points.

But Redknapp sees the reverse order coming at the end of the season.

Redknapp thinks Leicester City could drop to fifth place

“Chelsea matches certainly seem to be winnable. They have two tough matches – Liverpool away, then the Wolves at home could also be important, “said the former Liverpool midfielder at Sky Sports.

“Manchester United have dream matches in Leicester City. Leicester matches are difficult.

“If you could have someone meet there, you would probably choose Manchester United right now.

“I think Manchester United [are in pole position], by looking at these devices and with the form in which they are found. You look at Mason Greenwood and the impact that Bruno Fernandes has made on this club has been phenomenal.

Redknapp supports Manchester United and Chelsea for a place in the top four

“I think it will be Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester. ”

If Leicester finished fifth, they could still play in the Champions League next season, according to the results of Manchester City’s appeal against their two-year European ban.

The Sports Arbitral Tribunal is expected to render its verdict on this appeal on July 13.
