Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville reviewed their pre-season title and top four predictions on Monday Night Football.

Having selected six Liverpool players in their team of the year, it came as no suprise that they stuck with their pre-season prediction of the Reds retaining their title.

Neville said: “I said they were going to at the start of the season, and there’s nothing I see.

“That moment around Villa and Van Dijk getting injured I thought, ‘this could be interesting’, but they’ve settled down.

“They’ll have bumps – they didn’t have bumps last year, they were unbelievable – they’ll have bumps this year just because of the league and the way it is but I think they’ll definitely get there.”

Top four pre-season predictions

Neville: Man City, Man Utd, Spurs

Carragher: Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea

Neville: “You’re allowed to change your mind, aren’t you? To be honest with you I said Chelsea I thought could finish in the top four.

“That last one – I think Manchester City and Manchester United will definitely finish in the top three and I think it’ll be Chelsea or Tottenham, and it’s a flip of the coin to be honest with you.”

Carragher: “I think United will, I think they’ve got a lot. Their attacking power is fantastic. You look at the bench at the weekend against Leeds, they’ve got a really strong squad, Manchester United. You always fancy them to score goals in games so I think they’ll be there or thereabouts.”
