With 6 round of matches played so far in the Premier League, Paul Merson has done a fresh top four prediction.

The Arsenal legend has ruled Chelsea and Manchester United out of the top four, and has instead backed Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal to make up the top four, in no particular order.

Despite Liverpool’s poor start to the season, Paul Merson is backing Liverpool to turn their season around, but isn’t sure of what to expect from Graham Potter’s Chelsea.

“It’s still early doors, but I think the Premier League top-four this season will be Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in whatever order,” Paul Merson told Sportskeeda.

“Chelsea will obviously have a thing or two to say, but we’ll have to wait and see how Potter performs at Stamford Bridge.

“As for Manchester United, I don’t think they’ll make it because they still have a lot of work to do in terms of their squad.

“They’ve won four league games in a row, including victories against Liverpool and Arsenal, but I’m yet to be convinced by them.

“Arsenal are good and I believe they are in there for the long run, while I’m still backing Liverpool to turn it around in the coming weeks to secure a UEFA Champions League spot.”
