Chelsea will not get in top-four – Merson names team to win title next season

Chelsea unveil the shirt numbers of the new signings ahead Brighton game

Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has predicted the team that would win the Premier League title next season.

According to Merson, Manchester City will win the Premier League title again next season, while Chelsea will not finish in the top four.

Recall that Manchester City won the Premier League title last season while Chelsea finished in the second half of the Premier League table.

“I can’t look past Manchester City for the Premier League title. With Gundogan gone and Kyle Walker on his way out, it might be difficult for them this season,” Merson said, as quoted by Sportskeeda.

“Arsenal could give them a run for their money, but [Manchester] City’s bench is very strong.

“Declan Rice will need to get used to Arsenal’s way. They move the ball around a lot faster than he is used to at West Ham and England.

“A lot depends on whether Manchester United can get Harry Kane. If they do, they’re massive challengers for the Premier League title. If they don’t, they will still be fighting for a place in the top four.

“I don’t think Chelsea will get into the top four – there is too much work to be done at the moment. Their squad is very unbalanced.

“At the moment, the only thing that could deny Manchester City the Premier League title is their own complacency. They’ve got the best squad and should be able to defend their crown.”
