Harry Redknapp predicts who will be 2020/21 Premier League champions

Harry Redknapp has nailed his colours to the mast over who will be Premier League champions in the coming season.

Only two men – Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson – have managed more matches in Premier League history than Redknapp, who oversaw 639 matches in the division over his spells with West Ham, Portsmouth, Tottenham, Queens Park Rangers and Southampton.

And the 73-year-old has plenty to consider when it comes to picking just who will be champions in the new campaign.

Liverpool finally ended their 30-year drought last season, wrapping up their 19th top-flight title shortly after the restart of football amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Jurgen Klopp's side were streets ahead of the competition throughout the season, and ended the campaign with a hugely impressive 99 points – 18 ahead of closest rivals Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's side were forced to accept the status of runners-up having won the previous two league titles under the Catalan boss, and so they are sure to be determined to wrestle back the trophy in the coming campaign.

Whereas Liverpool and City have clearly been the best two teams in the last few seasons, there seems set to be increased competition from elsewhere in 2020/21.

Manchester United have been building well after finishing third last season, while Chelsea have brought in a number of new signings this summer.

But despite that, Redknapp thinks the title will be staying on Merseyside.

"Chelsea have performed well, Man Utd are getting stronger, Man City are going to try and win it back this year but I’m still going to go with Liverpool," Redknapp said on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch when asked to name his title winners.

"I think Liverpool look like the winning team to me."

The Reds start the defence of their trophy at home to newly promoted Leeds United next Saturday.
