Chris Sutton’s Premier League title and top four prediction.

Former Blues forward thinks United and Chelsea won’t seal top-four place.

Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has backed Manchester City to win the Premier League for the third time on the trot.

The Citizens beat Jurgen Klopp’s Reds to the title by a point on the last day of last season as they went on to seal a domestic treble.

However, BT sport pundit Sutton has high hopes on City becoming champions again despite Liverpool’s brilliant start to the season. He also tipped Unai Emery’s Gunners to finish in the top four.

He told the Daily Mail: "I'm still backing City for the title, followed by Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal. 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."
