English Premier League legend, Alan Shearer has named favorite four clubs to occupy the Champions League places and also predicted the three teams he thinks will get relegated this season.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are already 10 points clear at the top of the table with Chelsea in second place.
Liverpool are occupying the third place while Arsenal are currently in fourth spot with West Ham, Tottenham and Manchester United breathing down their neck.
And Shearer is backing City, Liverpool and Chelsea to form the top three and Tottenham to finish in fourth.
“Before a ball was kicked I did say Chelsea [to win the league] – I’m having severe doubts now,” Shearer told Optus Sport.
“I’ll probably have to say Man City [will win] I don’t think anyone will beat them now,” he told Optus Sports
“Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea… I’ve been really impressed with Arteta and Arsenal and how he’s handled things, but [Antonio] Conte going into Spurs and with Harry Kane and Son [Heung-min] up front, I think I might say Spurs into fourth position.”
On which teams will be relegated, Shearer said, “Probably Norwich, Watford and I always say Burnley will have enough but I’ve watched Burnley a few times in December and been really surprised at how poorly they’ve been defensively.”
