LARGE GALLON 11:37, 12 Aug 2022 11:37 a.m., August 12, 2022 FORMER Arsenal defender William Gallas has made an astonishing prediction about this season’s Premier League top four.
The 44-year-old played for Arsenal for four years before moving on to Chelsea and Tottenham.
Gallas played for Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham during his career.
And the former France international predicts that his three former clubs will finish ahead of Liverpool this season.
“As an ex-London player, I have to say Chelsea, Arsenal, or Tottenham to win the Premier League,” he told Genting Casino.
On top four, Liverpool can miss out because they don’t have Sadio Mane anymore and Luis Diaz does not have the same impact. “Liverpool always concede goals too, like we saw against Fulham.
“Even though I like how Liverpool plays, I believe City, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham will win.”
Liverpool has finished in the top four of the Premier League in each of the last six seasons.
And three months ago, Jurgen Klopp’s men were pipped to the title by Manchester City by one point on the final day.
The Reds won the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup, but were defeated in the Champions League final by Real Madrid.

And they made an indifferent start to the new campaign as they drew 2-2 with Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Speaking after the game, Klopp said: The result is not a defeat — but the performance was a defeat.
I don’t want to take anything away from Fulham, they did really well. But there were moments we weren’t even close to what we should have been. We didn’t find a way into the game. “ We are used to more dominance but we didn’t play quick enough. “ The attitude was not right in the beginning, then we wanted to fight back, but you don’t find it easy any more. The pitch was dry, stuff like this.
“We played a really bad game and got a point. The best thing about the game is the result. It is fine but I don’t think we deserve more than that. “ It’s my responsibility to find out why in the last game we played a really good game and seven days later we played completely upside down. That doesn’t make sense.”
Liverpool’s first home game of the season takes place on Monday when they host Crystal Palace at Anfield.
