Jamie Carragher reveals Manchester United will finish ahead of Chelsea


The Liverpool legend says that Chelsea were the most interesting team to watch last season as a neutral.

However, he adds that fitting in so many new signings in one season will be a tough task.

Carragher insists that unless and until Chelsea get their goalkeeper situation sorted, they will not come close to Liverpool and Man City.

He says that he predicts Manchester United to finish above the Blues in the table again due to this problem.

"Chelsea were arguably the most interesting team to watch last season for the neutral as you were never quite sure what you would get from them," Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher told TEAMtalk.

"They had some big wins, got into the top four, but also had some big defeats. Chelsea conceded a lot of goals and score a lot of goals and that to continue this season, even after all their signings this summer.

"They have signed some good players, but getting them all to fit into their team quickly will not be easy and we don’t know how Havertz, Werner and the rest will adapt to English football.

"Also, they still have a huge problem with their goalkeeper and until that is rectified, I don’t see them getting anywhere near Man City or Liverpool, whoever they buy in the top end of the pitch.

"That’s why I would back Manchester United to finish ahead of them again, even though they don’t like they are ready to get anywhere near the 90-95 point target needed to win the title."

Kepa Arrizabalaga was statistically the worst keeper in the Premier League last season as he ranked dead last in save percentage and shots conceded from outside the box.

However, the Blues are reportedly close to signing Edouard Mendy, who is much better than Kepa and that should help the defence a lot.

We disagree heavily with Carragher here - winning the title may still be difficult in the 2020/21 season, but you can bet your last dollar that we will finish above the Red Devils! Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
