Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have given their predictions for the Premier League season.
After two matches played in the 2018/19 Premier League season, Both pundits have shared their thoughts on how the season will pan out.
Champions – Man City
‘Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham are chasing City, and they have to gain encouragement from somewhere in the first part of the season. In the first two games, there’s been no encouragement against Arsenal and Huddersfield. Someone has to leave one on City and leave a seed of doubt that they can be caught.’
Top Four – Liverpool, Man Utd, Tottenham
‘Tottenham have, over a period of years, been consistent and have still retained all of their best players for us to show a level of belief in them that they will finish in the top four again. They have won our trust and performed season in and season out. It’s been a brilliant performance by Mauricio Pochettino there with no budget.’
Top six challengers – Everton
‘I don’t think Everton will break into the top six, and I can’t add anything to what Jamie has said, but I do think Crystal Palace are likely not to go far in the cup competitions and have free weeks so they could be serious challengers for the position we are talking about.’
Top goalscorer – Aguero
‘I absolutely love Sergio Aguero to bits, he is absolutely brilliant, but I do think he should be scoring 25-30 goals. He should have that under his belt and the injuries are the big problem. I’m going for him under the theory he is going to stay fit and continue to be a big part of that City team. Gabriel Jesus is emerging but has not overtaken him yet and Aguero could just pip Harry Kane.’
