Former England star Emile Heskey has shared his opinion on clubs to finish in the Premier League top four this season.

Despite their very poor start to the season, Heskey still believes the Reds will secure a top-four finish.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are 10th on the Premier League table after a 3-2 defeat to league leaders Arsenal on Sunday.

The Reds have won just two of their first eight league games this term.

But Heskey still backed Liverpool to salvage their season by ‘sneaking’ into the top four.

The former England frontman expects Graham Potter’s Chelsea and Liverpool to join title rivals Man City and Arsenal in the top four.

He told Ladbrokes: “Liverpool are looking at the top four now; not the title race.

‘Manchester City and Arsenal will be the top two in the Premier League this season.
.
“If you’re pushing me, right now – aside from Man City and Arsenal – I still believe Liverpool can finish in the top four.

“I’d probably say Chelsea are in there too. I’d put Chelsea in third and then Liverpool fourth.”
