Jamie Carragher meanwhile was spot on with many of his predictions. Frank Lampard’s side are just two point clear of the drop zone with three games left to play, which couldn’t be much further away from overachieving. GARY NEVILLE has been left red-faced after his pre-season Premier League predictions resurfaced on social media. Lukaku meanwhile has managed just a measly eight Prem strikes since his club record £97.5million move from Inter Milan.
Finally Neville reckoned Arsenal would be the underachievers of the season. All of which can be argued to be true with two weeks of the season left to play. The 47-year-old also tipped Romelu Lukaku to win the Prem golden boot. That accolade looks like it’s going to Mohamed Salah or Son Heung-Min, with the pair on 22 goals and 21 goals respectively.

But if they do squander a return to Europe’s elite competition for the first time since 2016/17 then Neville can argue that prediction as correct. The Manchester United legend reckoned the Red Devils were going to finish THIRD in the table.
