Paul Merson has revealed his Premier League predictions come the end of the season and according to him, he sees Manchester United and Liverpool finishing in the top four. While United have been in decent form in recent games and lie in second place behind Manchester rivals City, Liverpool have, on the other hand, been very poor this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have not won any of their last four games, losing all, including their home fixtures. They have been knocked out of the top four positions as a result of their woeful form and performances this season. With Chelsea closing in on the top four after their fine run of form, they are in fifth place, two points adrift West Ham United who are in fourth place.

But despite the losing streak and the poor form this season, Merson believes Liverpool still have what it takes to finish the season within the top four. Merson says he expects Manchester City to win the Premier League title this season, with United finishing in second place while he says Leicester City will be finishing in third place.

According to former Arsenal midfielder Merson, City have automatically secured their top-four spot and are the most likely candidates for the title this season. He said Manchester United will come next in second place and will finish just a few points above the Foxes, who he said have been great this season.

Merson says the race for the fourth spot which guarantees a Champions League appearance for next season will be a tough one Chelsea will prove to be tough candidates and will do everything to knock Liverpool off the race. However, he believes that while Chelsea will be on a great run, Liverpool will still edge them out and become the fourth-placed team when the season ends.
