Neymar backs Manchester United to defy the critics this season with shock Premier League prediction

Neymar has backed Manchester United to finish ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea in the Premier League this season.

Both Liverpool and Chelsea have enjoyed perfect starts to the new campaign having won all four of their top flight games so far, while United have had a mixed bag of results, winning two and drawing two.

Reigning champions Manchester City have won three and drawn one.

Liverpool were the bookmakers, and pundits, favourites to challenge City for the title this season after a positive summer in the transfer market.

And Chelsea have also emerged as shock contenders after a fine start to life under new boss Maurizio Sarri and the addition of midfield duo Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

But Neymar, who has scored four time already this season for PSG, believes it will be United who will put up the biggest fight against City for the Premier League title this season.

“Who will win it? Woah that’s difficult,” the Brazilian told the Express when asked who will win the title this season.

“It’s very hard, very difficult, but Manchester City will win it.

“Second will be United, third is Chelsea. Fourth is Tottenham.”

United next take on high-flying Watford on September 15th.
