Global Sports : Le Tiss’ Top Seven

posted in: News | 0

After the top seven all won in midweek, it’s tight at the top of the Premier League table. We asked Soccer Saturday pundit Matt Le Tissier to predict who will finish where.
Le Tissier told Sky Sports: “The top-four race is extremely tight and could very go down to the final day of the season with a few teams still in with a chance. Here’s how I think the top seven will look come May 26…”
1st – Chelsea
“I can’t see anyone catching Chelsea. They’re too consistent and, with a five-point lead and a game in hand, they are going to take some stopping. City are not good enough to do that right now.”
Sky Bet’s title odds: 1/7
2nd – Manchester City
“I actually backed them for the title during pre-season but they’ve not been consistent enough. I knew Chelsea would be strong after improving over the summer but I thought City, with the squad they’ve got, would be stronger. However, they are good enough to hold the chasing pack at bay.”
Sky Bet’s title odds: 7/1
3rd – Arsenal
“They’ve got the experience in Arsene Wenger in terms of battling consistently for that top-four finish. It’s looking like they’ll do it but once again they’re not quite good to go for the title.”
Sky Bet’s top-four odds – 1/5
4th – Liverpool
“Brendan Rodgers’ side have hit a great run of form and I have a feeling they might pip United and Southampton to fourth place. They’ve been the best team in terms of points in Europe’s top five leagues in 2015 and the confidence they’ve gained should help them go on and finish the job.”
Sky Bet’s top-four odds – 1/1
5th – Southampton
“Southampton have got eight games in a row which are very winnable following the Chelsea match next weekend. The team looked a bit flat for a few games, but the tight win in midweek will be a huge boost and they’ve got a nice break to rest their legs.”
Sky Bet’s top-four odds – 6/1
6th – Manchester United
“They were very lucky against Newcastle and David de Gea kept them in it. It was a little bit odd from Louis van Gaal to suggest that it was their best away performance, especially as they should have conceded a penalty as well. My prediction of United finishing below Southampton is not just based on optimism but the fixtures, as they still have all top seven sides other than the Saints still to face.”
Sky Bet’s top-four odds – 8/11
7th – Tottenham
“They’ve got some tough fixtures to come and even QPR away on Saturday is going to be a difficult one. Trips to Manchester United and Southampton are likely to be make or break for them and I just can’t see them qualifying for the Champions League this year.”
Sky Bet’s top-four odds – 6/1
