Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Ince has given his prediction on who will finish in the top four in the Premier League this season.
Ince who now works as a football pundit believes that Tottenham Hotspur will finish above both Arsenal and Chelsea come the end of the campaign.
However, while Spurs are currently trying to put the pressure on the two sides above them, Manchester City and Liverpool, he does not believe Spurs will win the title this season.
Instead, he has tipped Manchester City to win their second successive Premier League crown. The former Liverpool player believes that the Anfield faithful will have to wait yet another season to win the title and will end up in second place.
In third place, he has Tottenham followed by North London rivals Arsenal which means that Chelsea would miss out on a top four finish and Champions League football.
Should Ince be correct with his prediction of Spurs finishing above Arsenal and Chelsea, it would mean they would finish as the top team in London for the second season in a row.
He told the Mirror: “It’s a tough one because everyone would say City.
“I’m going to say City because even against Chelsea they were so dominant in the first half, I just think they’ve got no [Sergio] Aguero and no [Kevin] De Bruyne at the moment and they’re still dominating teams.
“So I think City will do it and Liverpool second – I’d like to say Liverpool first to be fair but I think they’ll finish second.
“Then I think Tottenham and then Arsenal, I think. I don’t think Chelsea score enough goals. They’re so reliant on [Eden] Hazard and he’s gone off the boil a little bit.
“[Olivier] Giroud doesn’t score enough goals for me and [Alvaro] Morata is a bit of a sulker, doesn’t really run around, doesn’t want to move. They do lack goals.”
