Steven Gerrard is backing both Arsenal and Manchester United to miss out on top-four finishes in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal moved up to fifth place in the Premier League table on Wednesday night as they finally got back to winning ways by beating West Ham United 3-0 at The Emirates.

Manchester United, meanwhile, will end the week in sixth place after their frustrating 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Liverpool are currently third in the table ahead of fourth-placed Manchester City as the race for Champions League qualification hots up.

And former Reds captain Gerrard is expecting both Liverpool and Manchester City to finish in the top four this season.

Speaking on BT Sport on Wednesday night, Gerrard said: “I think Manchester City will get in there and Liverpool will be the other team.

“I think Manchester United and Arsenal will miss out – that’s my prediction.”

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Monday night with a trip to Crystal Palace, while Manchester United will take on Sunderland on Sunday afternoon.
