Jamie Carragher, Gary Neville

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have reviewed their pre-season selections to win the Premier League title and finish in the top four this season.

The pundits were in good form on Monday Night Football – and also named their Premier League Team of 2020.

And having named six Liverpool players in their team of the year, it was no surprise that both stuck by their pre-season title pick of Liverpool.

Neville said: “I said they were going to at the start of the season, and there’s nothing I see.

“That moment around Villa and Van Dijk getting injured I thought, ‘this could be interesting’. But they’ve settled down now.

“They’ll have bumps – they didn’t have bumps last year – they were unbelievable. They’ll have bumps this year just because of the league and the way it is but I think they’ll definitely get there.”

Top four pre-season predictions

The pundits also reviewed the three sides their early picks who would join Liverpool in the top four.

Neville had intitially said Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham.


Carragher went with City, United and Chelsea.

Reviewing their picks, Neville said: “You’re allowed to change your mind, aren’t you? To be honest with you I said Chelsea I thought could finish in the top four.

“That last one – I think Manchester City and Manchester United will definitely finish in the top three. Then I think it’ll be Chelsea or Tottenham, and it’s a flip of the coin to be honest with you.”

Carragher: “I think United will, I think they’ve got a lot. Their attacking power is fantastic. You look at the bench at the weekend against Leeds, they’ve got a really strong squad, Manchester United.

“You always fancy them to score goals in games so I think they’ll be there or thereabouts.”
