EPL top four: Gary Neville gives verdict on Liverpool, Man Utd, Newcastle
Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has warned the Red Devils and Newcastle that Liverpool could leapfrog them to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.
Liverpool moved one point off Man United in fourth – albeit having played a game more – after beating Leicester City 3-0 on Monday night at the King Power Stadium.
The Reds have two games remaining in their bid to finish inside the top four this term, with both Newcastle and United currently occupying third and four looking over their shoulders amid sticky runs of form.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville insisted Newcastle and Man United should be wary of Liverpool’s threat.
He said, “Manchester United and Newcastle still have a job to do, he said.
“Jurgen Klopp’s fist-pump at the end is definitely something that, if you are a Newcastle or a Manchester United player, you recognise as “he is coming for you”. I think he is sending them a message.
“They are going to have to make sure they do their job properly as Liverpool will win their two games.
“Manchester United and Newcastle have got to forget the idea that Liverpool are going to drop points as if they don’t do their job, they will slip out of the top four.”
