Stan Collymore is tipping Liverpool FC to finish second ahead of Manchester United in third in the Premier League this season.

The Merseyside outfit will be aiming to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title this season after they ended up in fourth place but invested heavily in their squad over the summer.

Liverpool FC have brought in Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker as they prepare for the new season under German boss Klopp.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are under pressure to be serious title challengers next season after the Red Devils ended up in second place in the Premier League and without a trophy last season.

Manchester City were the dominant force in English football last term as they racked up a record points tally of 100 on their way to the title.

Collymore feels that Liverpool FC are likely to finish second next season ahead of Manchester United in third and Tottenham Hotspur in fourth.

Writing on Twitter, Collymore said as he predicted the top four: “City. Liverpool. United. Spurs (need freshness in the squad, pronto, just to say “nobody’s place should be taken for granted”).”

Manchester United will kick off the new Premier League season when they take on Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.

Liverpool FC, meanwhile, are preparing to host West Ham United at Anfield in their Premier League opener on Sunday.
