BBC Pundit Mark Lawrenson has backed Chelsea to overcome Manchester United and take the fourth spot when the two sides meet on Sunday.
Talking on BBC Football, Lawro said:
“Manchester United are all over the place at the moment, with seven defeats in their past nine matches in what is their worst run of results since 1988-89.
Seeing them line up with five at the back at home against City on Wednesday was almost an admission that they could not afford to lose that game, but they really need to win this one to keep alive their hopes of making the top four.
Yes, we saw a reaction against City after their awful performance against Everton, but if you look through United’s team they have got some very ordinary players.
Chelsea arguably need all three points too, especially after they were held by Burnley on Monday. Their frustration in that game was obvious, and I think they might find this match is little bit more open.
I think Tottenham will finish third but who takes fourth spot might not be settled until the final week of the season.
I am backing Chelsea to take it. Arsenal are not good enough away from home, and United are not good enough full-stop.”
