Rio Ferdinand predicts where Arsenal and Man City will finish

Rio Ferdinand says both Arsenal and Manchester City could miss out on top-four finishes this season

Rio Ferdinand believes that Manchester City and Arsenal could both miss out on top four finishes this season.

The Gunners are currently within the top four spots in the Premier League table as they look to build on their second-placed finish in the top flight last season.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are bidding to at least qualify for next season’s Champions League in Pep Guardiola’s first campaign in charge at The Etihad.

However, former Manchester United defender Ferdinand feels that Manchester City and Arsenal are the two teams likely to miss out on a spot in next season’s Champions League.

Asked which teams of the current top six he thinks will miss out on a top-four finish, Ferdinand told BT Sport on Saturday night: “I think Arsenal could miss out. And Manchester City have left themselves with a bit too much to do.”
