Troy Deeney predicts how Premier League top four will finish

Troy Deeney has given his thoughts on how the Premier League will finish this season and who the top four will be.

It comes amid a wild year with no clear favourite as it stands, though Liverpool are making a case.

However, it was not long ago that they were utterly thrashed by Aston Villa 7-2 in one of the craziest top-tier matches in years.

It shows that every team can be beaten by anyone at any time.

For the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham it is good news as a stretch of good form could see them in contention for the title.

But clubs like Leicester and Everton cannot be discounted just yet after good starts to the campaign.

And Deeney has given his thoughts on how the top four will look, leaving Manchester United out.

He said: “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.”

Deeney has joined talkSPORT this year on a weekly basis and gave his thoughts on the best defender he has ever faced.

“The best defender I’ve played against in my career would be Vincent Kompany," he told talkSPORT.

“I think he’s just a beast of a human; he’s fast, strong and a great leader.”

In a Q&A, Deeney was quizzed over his career – with most of his career at Watford and one question was who was his favourite player.

He said: “My favourite player to play with is Heurelho Gomes.

"It’s very strange for a striker saying that about a goalkeeper.

“He’d been my vice-captain for four or five years and is a great human being.

“He had all the experience at Spurs and in the Dutch league as well.”
