EPL table: Paul Merson predicts Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool and Leicester City position – TBEN


Arsenal hero Paul Merson has predicted the position Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Leicester City will finish this season.

Manchester United currently sit second in the Premier League table with ten points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Leicester City are third ahead of West Ham (fourth) and Chelsea (fifth), while Liverpool sit sixth on the paper.

Providing his prediction for the EPL top four this season, Merson told Sky Sports: “Man City is, obviously, that’s the easy part! Then I have to stay with Manchester United and Leicester, which are a very good team.

“The top three will stay there now, in my opinion. After that, it’s so difficult. You know me, I don’t like to sit on the fence, but I find it really hard to pick a team for the last place.

“Despite their great season so far, I don’t see West Ham going the distance and that means a place is up for grabs.

“Moyes’ side were brilliant, but I saw enough in that second half against Spurs to tell me it’s too much for them to do the rest of the season.

“Everton have the list of games for a challenge, but I’m worried about their consistency. For me, it’s between Chelsea and Liverpool for this last place.

“If Chelsea have a good March, that’s it. They left. But I’m afraid Chelsea will score enough goals. I can’t see them wowing the teams.

“I’ve always said Liverpool will get there, but when the going is going it’s so hard to stay with them, right now. It is difficult to stray from their form and the point is, luck is not with them.

“You watch the games they’ve lost and you watch the games they have coming up and you wonder if they can turn the tables. They should beat Sheffield United, but there is doubt there, especially without defenders.

“I have shown so much self-confidence, but the players keep dropping like flies. The only player I want on the field out of all of their players right now is Jordan Henderson.

“When things aren’t going well, he’s the leader. It is the player who makes people move. With him now out of the squad, it’s a bit worrying.

“I feel like I’m just going with the name and not looking at performance and results. The teams they did not beat are very worrying.

“I don’t know why, but I have to stay with Liverpool. Please don’t ask me why, but I still have faith in Jurgen Klopp and by his side.
