Jamie Redknapp thinks Man Utd and Chelsea will pip Leicester City to a top-four finish as the Foxes fall away in the last five matches.

Man Utd beat Bournemouth 5-2 on Saturday to keep the Red Devils two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and three points adrift of Leicester, who are currently third.

United had temporarily overtaken Chelsea on Saturday before the Blues beat Watford 3-0 at Stamford Bridge to retake fourth spot.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “Chelsea’s fixtures certainly look winnable. They’ve got two tricky fixtures – Liverpool away and then Wolves at home could be a big one as well. Manchester United have got dream fixtures up to Leicester City away. Leicester’s fixtures are difficult.

“If you could have anyone’s fixtures there you’d probably choose Manchester United’s right now. I think Manchester United [are in pole position], looking at those fixtures and with the form they’re in. You look at Mason Greenwood and the impact Bruno Fernandes has made at that club, it’s been phenomenal.

“I think it will be Manchester United, Chelsea and then Leicester.”
