Club legend and former Arsenal keeper, David Seaman has revealed his prediction of the top six clubs in the English Premier League for the 2022/2023 season.
Surprisingly, the former Arsenal star did not tip the Gunners to win the league this season but believes they will finish in the top four.
Seaman predicted that Liverpool will emerge as the premier league champions at the end of the season while Manchester City will occupy the second position.
He predicted a third-place finish for Arsenal and put their North London rivals, Tottenham in the fourth position. He added that Manchester United and Chelsea will occupy fifth and sixth positions respectively.
According to him on his podcast, “My top six is Liverpool at No.1, then Man City, Arsenal third, Tottenham fourth, Man United fifth, Chelsea sixth.”
Arsenal Must Finish Better Than Last Season
Seaman lamented that Arsenal narrowly missed out on the Champions League last season, but added that a return to Europe in the Europa League is still good for the club.
He however said the club must do better this season.
“I have been asked, “what is a good season for Arsenal?” and I say, “anything better than last season.”
He added, “Last season was still good, it’s just annoying and disappointing that the other North London team beat us to Champions League. But we are back in Europe and I still feel that Arsenal have a better chance of winning the Europa League then they have the Champions league.”
