Alan Shearer Predicts His Premier League Top 4 And Where Liverpool Will Finish

Alan Shearer, the Premier League’s all-time top scorer, expects Liverpool to finish second to Manchester City this season.Jurgen Klopp’s side are top of the table midway through the season, but when asked to predict what the top four will look like in May, Shearer said:”City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Villa. I wanted to add Newcastle but I can’t! United currently hold a five-point lead over City, but that lead could drop to two points if the reigning champions win the game, so Pep Guardiola’s men remain in contention. Hunt first.

Questions have been raised about their consistency after dropping points in recent months, but their performance against Everton on Wednesday suggests they can last. Liverpool haven’t always performed well this season, but they have found a way to get results.

Klopp’smen face Shearer’s former side on Monday nightThe Reds face Newcastle next and you’d normally expect it to be a tough game. After all, they needed Fabio Carvalho’s 98th-minute winner to win that game last season.However, the hosts are the most likely to win at Anfield as the Magpies find themselves in a difficult situation having lost four of their last five league games.

Liverpool play this weekend.City host Sheffield United this afternoon and Arsenal host Fulham on Sunday, so their opponents could close the gap on the Reds before the Merseysiders’ next game kicks off. It will be important for Klopp’s side to get into a rhythm and get a run of wins if they are to maintain their lead over their title rivals.
