There are already nine games into the 2022/2023 Premier League season. Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League with 24 points.
Champions Manchester City are second with 23 points and is yet to lose a game this season. Tottenham Hotspurs are third with 20 points and had lost only one game this season which was against Arsenal at the Emirates.
Chelsea are back to winning ways under Graham Potter and are fourth in the Premier League after back-to-back victory over Crystal Palace and Wolves with still a game in hand.
Manchester United after two shocking defeats against Brighton and Brentford, the Red Devils have won six of their last six matches and are on 15 points with a game in hand.
Liverpool are having a poor season and had won only two games this season. Jurgen Klopp’s side are tenth with 10 points and are closer to the relegation zone than the top four.
However, Emile Heskey has picked Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool to make the top four this season.
What is Emile Heskey’s top-four pick for this season?
The former Liverpool striker said on Ladbrokes: “Liverpool are looking at the top four now; not the title race.
“They really need to start adding points sooner, rather than later though, because it’s a really tough position to be in when you start drifting away from the chasing pack.
“Manchester City and Arsenal will be the top two in the Premier League this season. Then you’ve got the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Man United, and Tottenham who’ll always be there or thereabout.
“I know a lot of people say they don’t like the way Spurs play, but if it’s getting you results, you’re obviously doing something right.
“It’s all about striking that right balance; is it the most attractive football to watch? No, but what have they got to show for the kind of football they’ve played over the last few years? Nothing.
“Ultimately as a fan, you just have to ask yourself exactly what you want. It’s not pretty, but when you’re playing pretty football, you’ll always have a section of fans saying they want grit and they want to fight.
“This isn’t just a Spurs thing, by the way; it goes for the whole division. It’s no good playing the best and most attractive football if you’re losing every week. It counts for nothing.
“If you’re pushing me, right now – aside from Man City and Arsenal – I still believe Liverpool can finish in the top four. It’ll be a tough ask for them, make no mistake about that, but I believe they’ll sneak in there.
“I’d probably say Chelsea are in there too. I’d put Chelsea in third and then Liverpool fourth.”
This Weekend’s Premier League round of matches will commence on Friday when Brentford host Brighton and Hove Albion on Friday at the Gtech Community Stadium.
