Manchester United legend Gary Neville has backed Chelsea to finish in the top four and end the season in third place ahead of Leicester City.

He also expects defending champions Liverpool to finish outside the top four this season.

Asked about who will finish in the top four, Neville told Sky Sports: “I think it is [fixed]. Leicester are the one team you’d be most nervous about, because they did blow up last season. But I think there’s just enough this year.

“I don’t see West Ham catching Leicester, and the teams below them are so inconsistent and seem to be all over the place. I’m not sure which one of them is going to put a run together.

“They’re capable of it, some of them, but I would think this Leicester team would hang on, and would cement the fact Brendan Rodgers has done a brilliant job two years on the bounce.

“Last year, they were so unlucky to miss out on the last day to Manchester United, whereas this year I think they’ll make top four, with Chelsea third and Leicester fourth.”
