The 2021-22 season is expected to be a tough one, as the big sides have restrategised for the new season, and will fight to win the league yet again.

Manchester City won it last season, and are everyone’s suspect to win it again this season. United finished in second after a poor start to the season, and have now strengthened the side with the additions of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

Former Arsenal midfielder has revealed his top six for this season and has backed United to finish in second yet again and behind Manchester City whom he believes will win the league.

Revealing his top-four prediction on talkSPORT, Wilshere said: “Manchester City will win it. I would prefer Man United to win it but I think they come second. Chelsea third, Liverpool fourth, Arsenal fifth and Leicester sixth.

“I played against Man City so many times and it’s awful, it’s horrible. You can’t get the ball off them. Pep just gets them playing these little passes. If they get Harry Kane as well it’s over before we even start.

“Liverpool will have a better season than last year because [Virgil] van Dijk is back, but I just think Man City are just too good.

“[Manchester United] tried with [Jose] Mourinho to bring in that experienced manager who just wants to win, but he didn’t win. I think Solskjaer has done well. But they have to win a trophy next season.”
