Wayne Rooney predicts who will finish in the Premier League's top-four


As usual, the race for the top-four in the Premier League looks set to be incredibly exciting this season.

While Manchester City look like they’ve already wrapped up the league title, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal are all looking to join them in next season’s Champions League.

And after Liverpool and Tottenham played out a dramatic 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday, it’s almost impossible to call who will rally in the final few months of the season and qualify for Europe’s elite competition.

United are in the best position, sitting on 56 points with Liverpool five points adrift. However, if Chelsea can beat Watford, they will move on to 53 points.

Meanwhile, currently outside the top-four is Spurs - on 49 points - and Arsenal four points further behind. Incidentally, the two north London clubs meet at Wembley on Saturday.

Like we said, it looks incredibly exciting and almost impossible to call.

However, that hasn’t stopped one man by attempting to predict the top-four - Wayne Rooney.


Ahead of his appearance on Monday Night Football, Rooney was asked which four English teams will have the chance to compete in the Champions League next season.

And, rather than sitting on the fence, the Everton striker actually gave a very honest answer.


“I think Chelsea are a great team,” Wayne Rooney said.

“I think they will make the top four definitely. I think obviously there seems to be a few issues with (Antonio) Conte but I’m sure they’ll get sorted out and they’ve got enough quality there to finish in the top four.”

Presenter Dave Jones then pressed Rooney, saying: “You’ve got to say Man United as well presumably.”


“You’d think so. It’s tight, Tottenham have come into it, Liverpool. 

“So it is going to be tight, two of those big six teams are going to miss out. I just think Chelsea, Man City, I fancy Liverpool and Man United.”

There we have it - Rooney thinks it will be Arsenal and Spurs missing out.

There will be plenty of twists and turns before May before we find out whether Rooney is correct.
