Ex-Man United forward Dimitar Berbatov makes his PL top-four prediction

Man United’s new signings

Manchester United look to be splashing the cash this summer, after a rather poor 2018/19.

United finished the Premier League season down in 6th spot, missing out on Champions League football.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also had the worst defensive record of the top-six clubs last campaign.

In an attempt to rebuild his squad ahead of the 2019/20 season, Solskjaer has already signed Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer.

The Red Devils also look to be very close to completing a deal for Harry Maguire, with the defender having been spotted in Manchester on Sunday:

Berbatov’s top four

Despite bringing in two young players with lots of potential, and being close to a Maguire move, Dimitar Berbatov hasn’t been too kind to his former club in his Premier League prediction.

The former Man United striker made his top-four call when speaking to the Mirror.

Berbatov backed Manchester City to win their third successive league title, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea following behind.

Berbatov then names Arsenal and Man United behind the top-four, before giving a mention to Wolves as a team that he enjoyed watching last season:

“Unfortunately I need to say it but I think Manchester City will be champions again, then Liverpool. They are the top two.

“Then I think Spurs and then Chelsea. I say Chelsea because I saw them play under Frank Lampard and I like his philosophy a lot.

“And then of course you have the usual suspects, Arsenal and Man United.

“Hopefully we see someone from the rest of the pack – the other teams who are coming up. For example Wolves, I enjoyed watching them last season.

“Hopefully there is no fatigue as they are playing in Europe.”
