Savage has predicted that Manchester City will finish second in the standings during the 2016-17 campaign.
The former Wales international midfielder has backed Tottenham Hotspur to end up third and Liverpool to come fourth.
“I am going to go United to win it,” Savage told William Hill Betting. “Great manager, Mourinho, some very, very, very good signings.
“City in second. Guardiola have got Stones at the back now to partner Kompany.
“Third place - I am going to go for Spurs. Harry Kane will score goals again.
“And in fourth position Liverpool. They have made some good signings - Mane’s pace, Wijnaldum in midfield. So there’s my top four - no Arsenal, no Chelsea.
Former Chelsea and Tottenham defender Jason Cundy has also predicted United to win the league title this season.
The Englishman has left North London outfit Arsenal out of his top four as well, and has included Chelsea instead of Liverpool in the Champions League places.
“I have got United to win it,” Cundy said on the Premier League World show on BT Sport 3 (broadcast from 7:30pm, Wednesday, August 10, 2016).
“And in no particular order after: City, Chelsea and Spurs. I have got Arsenal to miss out.”
Savage and Cundy are well-known pundits, and it is interesting that both of them have left Arsenal out of their respective top-fours.
The Gunners may not have won the Premier League title since 2004, but the North London outfit are perennial top-four finishers.
Could this be the season when Arsene Wenger’s side drop out of the Champions League places?
Arsenal will kick off their 2016-17 Premier League campaign with a match against Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.
