BBC Sport Pundit Predicts Manchester United Title Win In 2020/21

BBC Sport Pundit Predicts Manchester United Title Win In 2020/21

Manchester United will win the Premier League, that's the opinion of one BBC Sport pundit although the rest of them have more sensibly predicted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team will finish fourth.

It's tough to predict what will happen in any given Premier League season, and we've given it our own go, but most people think that either Liverpool or Manchester City will win the league come May.

However former England international Chris Waddle has predicted that Solskjaer's side will finish above both their rivals, with the rest of the BBC pundits sticking with the general wisdom.

United need a run of excellent form when football returned from the lockdown, and a final day win against rivals Leicester City, to secure a top four finish last season, after being rubbish in the early going.

The arrival of Bruno Fernandes did turn things around, as well as Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford's return to fitness, and they have added Donny van de Beek to the squad in the summer.

However the Old Trafford club would have to overturn a 15 point gap to local rivals City and a 33 points gap to champions Liverpool!

Whilst 96% of BBC's pundits think United will finish in the top four, 17 of the 24 think it'll be in the last of those Champions League qualification spots.

Speaking about his controversial selection, Waddle said, "There are a lot of games jammed into this season and I am looking at the teams with the biggest squads as the ones who will do well. I don't think Liverpool will cope.

"City will, of course, but I just have a sneaky feeling United will spring a surprise. They already have a lot of quality on their books, and they might sign a couple more."

Along with last season's final top four, between them only Arsenal managed to sneak into the pundits' predictions, with Joleon Lescott having the Gunners as high as third and Ian Wright unsurprisingly placing them fourth.
