Paul Scholes has been one of Manchester United's leading critics this season
Midfield kingpin: Scholes is keen for United to re-sign Pogba

Paul Scholes has shared that he believes the final place for the top four will be between Liverpool and Arsenal.

The Reds are currently sat outside the Champions League spots in fifth with one point between them and the fourth placed Gunners.

The Merseyside giants have endured a poor run of form since the start of 2017 which has seen them knocked out of both the League Cup and FA Cup and they failed to win a single league game until their most recent encounter against Tottenham.

Jurgen Klopp’s side ran out 2-0 winners against Spurs at Anfield following two goals from Sadio Mane on Saturday and Scholes believes the north London club will eventually drop out of the top four.

“Chelsea, City, United and then it’s between Arsenal and Liverpool,” told Scholes to the Daily Mail.

Liverpool last finished in the top four in 2014 where they ended up finishing in second under Brendan Rodgers.

However, the famous side have played in the Champions League just twice since 2009 and they will be keen to put an end to that poor run.

This season started with a lot of promise for Liverpool after a strong start which brought eight wins, two draws and just one defeat in their first 11 games, but their recent poor run has brought an end to their title hopes.

They will now be eager to salvage something from this campaign and without a congested fixture list due to European football a top four place certainly looks achievable.
