Gary Neville predicts Liverpool Premier League finish, compares to Manchester United
By Aramide Oladipo
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes that Liverpool will finish in the top four ahead of Manchester United and Manchester City.
Both Manchester clubs endured frustrating results in midweek as United drew at home for the ninth time in the league whilst City were beaten at Stamford Bridge by current league leaders Chelsea.
Liverpool also dropped valuable points on Wednesday night as they were held to a 2-2 draw against Bournemouth at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have struggled when facing teams in the bottom half of the table suffering defeats against the likes of Burnley, Swansea City and Hull City.
Despite this, former Manchester United captain Neville, as quoted on the Sky Sports website, believes that his former side have left it too late to finish in the Champions League places.

“I think it will be the current top four, and Man United and Arsenal will miss out. It will be difficult for Tottenham to catch Chelsea and I don’t see it happening.” he said.
Neville concluded: “So many of the United games, they should have won and could have won. They just haven’t got that killer instinct to kill teams off.”
Liverpool are currently third in the table and Manchester City trail them by a point whilst Manchester United are six points behind the Merseyside club with two games in hand.
The Reds are looking to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since the 2014 where they were dumped out of the group stages under former boss Brendan Rodgers.
Liverpool have only finished above Manchester United twice in the Premier League era and they’ll be hoping to make it third time lucky this season.
