Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has made his predictions for this season’s Premier League title race and has tipped Manchester United to win the league, Manchester City for second spot and Chelsea to take third.
He wrote on Instagram: “The @premierleague is back!!! Come on people…. who’s winning it this year..?
“I’m going for…. 1. Manchester United (Mourinho factor.. bought proven in Lukaku & Matic)
“2. Manchester City (Attacking line is proper naughty)
“3. Chelsea (not enough depth to win it with UCL as well this season)
“4. Arsenal (don’t often miss out & Wenger will succeed in top 4) Sorry Spurs fans… seems some unhappiness in the camp right now & being at Wembley will be tough)
“Golden Boot – @harrykane & @rlukaku9 (25 Goals Each) Top 4 predictions below pls…… Go!”
Not many have tipped Chelsea to win the league this season, and like last season, Ferdinand was one of those to rule Chelsea out of the title.
Manchester United legends Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Owen Hargreaves all said “no” when asked if Chelsea will win the league. And this caused Chelsea legend Didier Drogba to troll them after Chelsea won a record 30 league games to become champions.
