“United have gone even younger than Chelsea have with their squad this year; they’ve trimmed their squad down to the smallest number of experienced players I’ve probably ever seen.

“I think Man United might find breaking in a bit of a struggle, so will Chelsea, so that gives an opening and an opportunity for a team like Everton.

“I don’t think Wolves will do it because they’re in Europe for the first time in a long, long time and that will take a toll on the squad, as we saw with Burnley last year. It’ll be difficult for them.

Marco Silva’s Everton side are currently sixth in the league table, and many are tipping them to finish in the position this season, with Solskjaer’s United squad a long way from competing domestically.

I think the Reds will just have enough fire power to finish sixth this time out, but the big challenge would be to finish in the top four ahead of both Chelsea and Arsenal.

Leicester City should also not be discounted this season, and of all the teams outside of the traditional ‘top six’ fighting for the European places, I believe Brendan Rodgers’ side are best equipped with Jamie Vardy firing and young stars James Maddison and Youri Tielemans impressing in midfield.
