The top four race is one that is very massive this season, as many teams still have an opportunity to seal a Champions League place.

Manchester United and Leicester City are second and third respectively, with West Ham currently fourth in the league. Chelsea are 5th and Liverpool 6th, with the likes of Everton and Tottenham still in the race.

Premier League icon Alan Shearer has given his top four prediction as the season enters its final stage.

The former Newcastle striker has backed Manchester United and Leicester City to finish in top four and believes that the final spot will be fought for by Chelsea and Liverpool.

“Manchester City are going to win the Premier League. Man United will get in the top four and so will Leicester. Then it’s between Liverpool and Chelsea,” Shearer wrote for The Athletic.

“Relegation? Sheffield United are gone. West Bromwich Albion are gone. And then I think it will either be Fulham or Brighton. Probably Brighton.’

Chelsea are 6 points behind United, and a win could take Chelsea to within three points of the Old Trafford outfit.
