Gary Neville has submitted his Newcastle United prediction ahead of the new Premier League season.

Gary Neville has submitted his predictions for the new Premier League season, and they won’t go down well with Newcastle United fans.

An exciting season awaits the Magpies, who will return to the Champions League after a top four finish last term. Eddie Howe has been handed more big-money signings as Newcastle look to establish themselves as a top four regular, but the new campaign will bring fresh challenges for Newcastle.

Eddie Howe and his man have not been used to balancing European football with Premier League commitments, but they will have to do that this season, and with the most difficult European competition of them all, no less.

Meanwhile, Chelsea and Liverpool are expected to have a resurgence, and Tottenham will hope to do the same, though much may depend on the future of Harry Kane. Aston Villa are also expected to have a big season having given Unai Emery plenty of big-name signings ahead of the Spaniard’s first full season in charge.

All of that will make things difficult for Newcastle as they look to secure another top four finish, and Sky Sports pundit Neville agrees, tipping Howe’s men to miss out on the top four this season.

Speaking on The Overlap, the Manchester United legend said: “Just because of the three thing and never winning a fourth I am going to go Arsenal to win the league, City second.”

“I think Arsenal can beat them this year. I think Arsenal, City, Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Villa. Newcastle and to be fair Tottenham, I just think Newcastle Champions League and Tottenham, I’m not quite sure what is going on there.”

Newcastle will need to prove Neville wrong to maintain their current trajectory, although a good run in the Champions League and some sort of European qualification would surely represent a good season, even if a top four finish is not achieved.
