Michael Owen has predicted two teams that will finish in the Premier League top four this season.
Manchester City and Manchester United have already booked their places in next season’s Champions League competition.
As it stands now, two slots are left open, as Leicester City in third place and fourth placed Chelsea are being chased by Liverpool and Tottenham.
Liverpool’s dramatic victory over West Brom on Sunday turned things around for Jurgen Klopp’s side after goalkeeper Alisson popped up with a stunning header in the 95th minute to keep the Reds’ hopes of securing a place in next season’s Champions League intact.
Hal Robson-Kanu had given the Baggies the lead in the first half before Mohamed Salah equalised, and the game looked set to end up as a draw before the goalkeeper produced a moment of magic.
Owen believes Leicester will not make it to the top four, with Chelsea and the Reds securing Champions League football.
“I can’t see the likes of Tottenham [sixth place] or anybody else squeezing into the party, West Ham,” he told Premier League Productions.
“I think it is Liverpool, Leicester and Chelsea, two from those three and I think it’s going to be Liverpool and one other.’
“When pressed for an answer on the other team, Owen said: “It’s so hard. I think Liverpool and Chelsea, I think Chelsea might beat Leicester.”
Liverpool will battle Burnley and Crystal Palace in their last two Premier League matches while Leicester face Chelsea and Tottenham.
Chelsea’s last game is against Aston Villa after their cracker against Leicester City on Tuesday.
