EPL Table: Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves predict how Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester will finish
Former Manchester United players, Rio Ferdinand and Owen Hargreaves have backed Chelsea and the Red Devils to finish in the top four positions on the Premier League table and secure Champions League football next season ahead of Leicester City.
Chelsea sits in the third position on the Premier League table with one point ahead of Leicester City (fourth) and Manchester United (fifth) with two games remaining to conclude the season.
When asked which teams will finish in top four positions between Chelsea, Man United, and Leicester, Ferdinand told BT Sport: “Yeah I agree [Leicester would lose one of their two remaining games].
“I looked at it at first and thought Liverpool and Wolves, which are Chelsea’s games, they are going to struggle.
“But I think Chelsea will beat Wolves on the last day of the season, something to play for. And then I think that West Ham will do Man United a favour.
“I just think Man United’s run, the way they have been playing, they are scintillating at the moment and I just think they win both their last 2 games and then they definitely qualify [along with Chelsea].”
On his part, fellow pundit, Owen added: “Yeah, I think I am with the boys. Man United will beat West Ham, and I think they will finish the job against Leicester.
“I think Chelsea are going to get in. If United and Leicester win their next games and then draw the last one, that is entirely possible, but Chelsea have got to go to Liverpool.
“I know they are not playing as well, but that is going to be tough. But I think Chelsea and Man United just get over the line.”
