Frank Lampard is backing both Manchester United and Chelsea FC to finish the top four this season – at the expense of Liverpool FC and Arsenal.

Manchester United are currently Manchester City’s closest challengers for the Premier League title but the Red Devils are way behind Pep Guardiola’s leaders in the table.

Chelsea FC, meanwhile, will now be looking to find some consistent form as they bid to get their campaign back on track after some mixed results in recent weeks.

The Blues lost 3-0 to Bournemouth at home last week and have now won just two of their last five Premier League games.

Manchester United look on course to at least secure a top-four finish under Jose Mourinho this season, and Spurs signalled their credentials with an impressive 2-0 win over the Red Devils in the top flight last week.

And despite Liverpool FC currently being in third place in the Premier League table, Chelsea FC legend Lampard believes that the Reds are set to miss out on a top-four finish this term.

Asked to predict the Premier League’s top four, Lampard told BT Sport last week: “Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham.

“[Liverpool miss out] because I think defensively they still haven’t dealt with their weaknesses. They’re great going forward but they lost Coutinho as well.”

Liverpool FC are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
