Former defender Jose Enrique believes four teams – Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea – can win the Premier League next season and has ruled Arsenal and Tottenham out of the title race.
Despite acknowledging Chelsea’s improvement under Thomas Tuchel this season, Enrique believes Manchester City are favourites to win the Premier League next season.
“Manchester City have dominated the Premier League this season, but I think it will be a lot closer next year,” said Enrique, speaking to Ladbrokes.
“I still expect them to be favourites to win the title, but Chelsea have improved under Thomas Tuchel and we know they’ll spend big again in the summer.
“Man United can be up there too if they sign the right players in the transfer window, and Liverpool will hopefully be back challenging for top spot again.
“I don’t see Arsenal or Tottenham being close at all, so it will be between those four teams I mentioned above.
“If I had to pick one team, I’d have to say Man City. Liverpool can absolutely challenge, but it’s Man City’s title next season if Liverpool don’t spend big.”
