EPL: Arsenal will not win title, Chelsea to finish in top four – Robbie Savage


Former Blackburn Rovers midfielder, Robbie Savage has predicted that Chelsea will finish in the Premier League top four despite their slow start.

He, however, warned Arsenal that they won’t win the title.

Chelsea are currently 12th in the table after winning just one of their opening four fixtures under new head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

But Savage is backing Pochettino to turn things around at Stamford Bridge.

He told Planet Sport Bet: “When Mauricio Pochettino was appointed I thought Chelsea would get in the top four, and I still believe that.

“They’ve signed so many good, hungry players and with a manager like Pochettino and the way he can develop players and teams, I think that Chelsea will still finish in the top four.

“With no European football the extra time on the training pitch is going to be so valuable to Pochettino.”

For Arsenal, Savage claimed that the Gunners will not emerge champions next May, despite going so close last term.

“Even with the acquisition of Declan Rice, I don’t think Arsenal can win the league, simply because of Manchester City.

“If City weren’t in the Premier League, then I think Arsenal would win it, but unfortunately for Arsenal, they are,” Savage said.
