Wright tips West Ham to join Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City in the top four
Former Arsenal star and football pundit Ian Wright has tipped West Ham to join the likes of Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool in the top four on the league table as he snubs Man Utd altogether.
While Chelsea are currently on top of the Premier League table ahead of second-place Liverpool, Man City (third) and West Ham (fourth), the Red Devils are, however, seated at the fifth position and could drop further this weekend when they face Man City.
“At the start of the season, I said Chelsea and I still fancy Chelsea, although they have got injuries now to Lukaku and Werner,” Wright said on David Seaman’s Seaman Says podcast.
“People say that Werner doesn’t score enough, but the fact is that Werner gives Chelsea so much and then Lukaku scores the goals.
“I still fancy Chelsea, but Liverpool is now getting themselves into a run of form that you’re going to find very difficult for them. They’ll just slip back into that form that they did when they dominated.
“It’s going to be City, Liverpool and Chelsea for me and I’m not sure with the fourth.
“I don’t know who is going to be finishing fourth at the minute. I’d love West Ham to stay there.”
Arsenal is another team that are fighting their way back to the top four this season.
