Dimitar Berbatov Has Predicted Manchester City To Finish Third In The League Next Season

Dimitar Berbatov has named his Premier League 2018/19 top four, and interestingly (putting it kindly) he's picked defending champions Manchester City to finish third.

City were truly scintillating under Pep Guardiola last season, winning an incredible 32 Premier League games racking up a staggering 100 points.

Guardiola has reinforced his team ahead of defending their Premier League title by snapping up Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City for a reported £60 million.

However, Berbatov isn't convinced by City who reckons they'll finish third behind Manchester United and Spurs.

"The top four will be the same as last season but in this order - Manchester United, Spurs, Manchester City, and Liverpool," he said.

Surprised he didn't mention Fulham, to be honest.

While Berbatov picked Liverpool for fourth spot, he was contemplating Chelsea who are now under the management of Maurizio Sarri following the sacking of Antonio Conte.

"I was going to say Chelsea because of the 'new manager' effect, the team start to perform better especially the first couple of matches but I think Liverpool above them because they've bought better players, so I'll stick to the same four as last year," he added.

Obviously, the former prolific Bulgarian striker enjoyed stints at both Spurs and Manchester United.

He transferred to Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen, eventually securing a switch to United in 2008 before returning to the English capital by heading to Fulham.
