Harry Redknapp predicts where Manchester United and Man City will finish in the Premier League next season
City won the league for the second season in a row, beating a brilliant challenge from Liverpool – who recorded the third highest Premier League points total in history. They went on to beat Tottenham in the Champions League final.
And Redknapp, speaking to MEN Sport in his role as ambassador for BetVictor’s #HeyHarry campaign, said he can see a similar battle next season.
“I see the top three as absolute certainties,” he said.
“I see Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham. And then it’ll be a scrap between the other three again.
“Arsenal are well short still defensively and in midfield. Up front they’re good. I like the front two, they’re fantastic. They’re short in midfield now [Aaron] Ramsey’s gone.
“If someone said you could have a bet next year, you’d have your life on Man City and Liverpool scrapping for the title. I think Tottenham will be a lot closer next year.”
On United’s chances, Redknapp said: “They’re miles behind Man City. Miles and miles behind them, Liverpool and Tottenham. He’s [Solskjaer] got a big job on his hands. It’s all about recruitment now. It’s about the players they bring in.
“The top six teams have got the best players. That’s why every year, apart from the year we had Leicester, it’s the same six teams. It’ll be the same six next year again. That’s the way it is, they’ve got the best players.”
