Man United hero Gary Neville has backed the club to finish above Chelsea and champions Liverpool next season.

United sealed a third-place slot last season despite a slow start to the 2019/20 campaign to qualify for Champions League.

Despite the relatively impressive finish, the Red Devils had a massive 33 points separating them and eventual title-winners Liverpool.

However, Neville has tipped his former side to narrow the gap between them and their arch-rivals to finish in second place in the upcoming campaign right behind Man City.

Be that as it may, the legendary defender admitted he is letting his heart rule his head a little in making the prediction.

The former England international further contends Chelsea will not be able to mount a serious title challenge despite the club signing a number of players.

The Blues have made no fewer than five major signings this summer, with Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva all moving to Stamford Bridge.

The west London club is also thought to be in a pole position to land Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen before the window shuts.

"I’m going to go Man City, Man United, Liverpool and Chelsea, but that’s with a little bit of hope rather than science," Neville told Stadium Astro when pressed on his top four prediction.

"Finishing third last season was a big moment for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. That demonstrated progression. I think he has to break that top-two or get close to that top-two and get close to the title," he continued.
