Harry Redknapp has told the Mirror that Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are the teams he is backing for a top four place this season.

This season is lining up to be one of the most competitive in Premier League history, with several big name managers taking charge of the big sides.

Jose Mourinho will be competing with Pep Guardiola in Manchester while Antonio Conte has been appointed at Chelsea to help them bounce back from the disaster that was last season.

With Arsene Wenger still at Arsenal and both Mauricio Pochettino and Claudio Ranieri also looking to keep Tottenham and Leicester in the mix, the race for the title and the top four should be a fierce one.

And Redknapp has offered his prediction of who will make it in, offering bad news for the reigning champions and Manchester United.

“I would be with Manchester City to win it, then Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur,” he told the Mirror.

“It is very difficult because there are six or seven team next year and three of them are going to be very disappointed. Big managers, big budgets and everything else and they’re suddenly going to have disappointing seasons.”

It will certainly be interesting to see which teams finish in the top four this season given the managers in charge and the money being spent.

As Redknapp says, several are going to end up disappointing and it would not be surprising to see several managerial casualties among the current elite bunch.
