Pundit predicts Manchester United, Arsenal will miss out on top four

Former Celtic and Aston Villa striker Alan McInally believes that Manchester United and Arsenal will fail to finish in the top four come May.

The race for Champions League qualification is very tight, with just four points separating second from sixth.

Chelsea are eight points ahead of the pack in first place, with Manchester City second on 52 points.

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are third and fourth respectively on 50 points each, while Liverpool are one point adrift of the top four and Manchester United are two.

The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 16 league matches, but their early-season form has put them slightly behind their rivals.

While appearing on Sky Sports News, McInally gave his top-four predictions and he believes that United will fail to clinch a Champions League spot.

The Scotsman also claimed that Arsenal will end the campaign outside of the favoured positions, revealing that his top four consist of “Chelsea, Man City, Spurs and Liverpool”.

The Premier League is sure to become Arsenal’s main focus now that they are on the brink of elimination from the Champions League following a 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday night.
