Chris Sutton’s 2019/20 Premier League top-four prediction

Sutton’s top-four

Ex-footballer and current BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton has recently made his Premier League top-four prediction.

Manchester City and Liverpool treated us to a superb title race in the 2018/19 campaign.

Both sides impressed massively, with City eventually earning their second successive league title with a staggering 98 points.

Liverpool finished just one point behind Pep Guardiola’s side in second place.

Unfortunately for Liverpool fans, Sutton has backed Man City to once again lift the title this time around.

Sutton then has Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal in 2nd, 3rd and 4th spot:

“I’m still backing City for the title, followed by Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal.” As quoted by the Mirror.

Sutton on Man United & Chelsea

Sutton also spoke about both Manchester United and Chelsea.

Sutton stated that United do not have the players to get into the top-four. He also expressed his shock at the Red Devils letting go of Alexis Sanchez.

Then, when speaking about Chelsea, Sutton points to their lack of summer signings, and Eden Hazard leaving, as reason for the top-four being beyond them:

“United haven’t got the players to get there.

“I can’t believe they let Alexis Sanchez go. They had already sold Romelu Lukaku and signed no replacement, so they were already light up front.

“I fear Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has cut his nose off to spite his face. He’s now relying on Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, maybe even 17-year-old Mason Greenwood to do a job up front.

“As for Chelsea , with their lack of signings and no Eden Hazard, the top four is beyond them.” As quoted by the Mirror.
