Gary Lineker predicts Premier League title winners, top four

Lineker expects the top four to be made up of Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City.

BBC Match of the Day and BT sport host Gary Lineker has shared his predictions for the top four finishing positions in the Premier League in 2015/16.

Posting a video on his social media accounts, Lineker explained to fans they he felt Manchester City would pip Arsenal to the league, although it would be close run.

He also does not want his former side Tottenham to be discounted, so impressed is he with their performances under Mauricio Pochettino this season which currently has them in fourth place.

Lineker feels another of his old sides, surprise package Leicester City will end up in fourth spot, above the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.

He said: "If I had to bet my life on it, I'd probably go with Manchester City.

"Don't rule Tottenham out either, probably a little bit too inexperienced yet, a little bit young, but they've got a big squad there now, they definitely have an outside chance."

Lineker's predicted top four contain the same teams as the league table presently does, but he believes Manchester City will rise from third to first, Arsenal slip from first to second, Tottenham to improve from fourth to third, and Leicester to fall from second to fourth - which would still be an incredible achievement for Claudio Ranieri's side.
