Troy Deeney has backed Liverpool to regain their Premier League crown this season, while the Watford man also predicts Manchester United and Arsenal will miss out on the top four.
The Premier League season is just eight games old for most teams and the campaign is expected to be one of the most wide-open title races in years.
Leicester City lead the way going into the November international break, with the Foxes followed close by Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham – though Deeney believes it will not be too long until Jurgen Klopp’s Reds reach the summit again.

Deeney thinks Liverpool will be closely followed by Manchester City in second place
The striker told talkSPORT: ‘I think the top four, personally, will have Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea and City, not in that order.
‘I still think Liverpool will win it; City second and then it’s a toss-up between Spurs and Chelsea.’
Manchester City and Liverpool met on Sunday in their first blockbuster meeting of the season, but the English heavyweight could not be separated and shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw.
City took on Liverpool last Sunday night in the top-flight but the game ended in a 1-1 draw
Mohammed Salah gave Liverpool the lead via an early penalty but Gabriel Jesus equalised later in the first-half before City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne missed a spot kick of his own.
Tottenham and Chelsea, meanwhile, have enjoyed a positive start to the season and already occupy the European places after eight games.
Arsenal and Manchester United, meanwhile, have faced difficult starts to the campaign, with the latter failing to win any of their first four Premier League home games for the first time in their history.
Deeney also thinks Manchester United and Arsenal will both miss out on a place in the top-four
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have suffered home losses to Spurs and Arsenal and while they got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win over Everton, the Red Devils still lie in 14th place.
Mikel Arteta’s Gunners looked to be back on track with their 1-0 Old Trafford victory last weekend but a sucker-punch 3-0 loss to high-flying Aston Villa on Sunday night as pushed the north Londoners back.
Other surprise contenders for the top-four include Southampton, Villa, Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton and Leicester City, who finished in fifth last season.
