Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville both backed Liverpool to successfully defend the Premier League title but disagreed slightly on which teams would join them in the top four this season.
The Reds are four points clear already in this campaign after 14 games despite an ongoing injury crisis and some disappointing results, including the 7-2 hammering by Aston Villa.
Jurgen Klopp's men were back to their best on Saturday, though, hitting seven of their own past Crystal Palace, while nearest contenders Tottenham slipped up to Leicester the following day.
The Foxes now lead the rest of the pack, with Man Utd, Everton and Chelsea all leapfrogging Spurs after the weekend's results.
Just seven points separates the teams between second and eleventh in the table on current standing, but both pundits had similar views on who would be in the coveted Champions League spots come May.
Neville and Carragher's Predictions
Title winners – both Liverpool
Neville told Sky Sports' Monday Night Football : "I said they were going to at the start of the season, and there’s nothing I see.
“That moment around Villa and Van Dijk getting injured I thought, ‘this could be interesting’, but they’ve settled down.
“They’ll have bumps – they didn’t have bumps last year, they were unbelievable – they’ll have bumps this year just because of the league and the way it is but I think they’ll definitely get there.”
Who do you think will make the top four? Have your say below.
Neville: Man City, Man Utd, Spurs
Carragher: Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea
Neville: “You’re allowed to change your mind, aren’t you?
“To be honest with you I said Chelsea I thought could finish in the top four.
“That last one – I think Manchester City and Manchester United will definitely finish in the top three and I think it'll be Chelsea or Tottenham, and it’s a flip of the coin to be honest with you.”
Carragher: “I think United will, I think they’ve got a lot. Their attacking power is fantastic. You look at the bench at the weekend against Leeds, they’ve got a really strong squad, Manchester United. You always fancy them to score goals in games so I think they’ll be there or thereabouts."
