Arsenal news, exclusives and analysis
A thrilling 3-2 win for the Gunners on Sunday took Mikel Arteta’s five points ahead of defending champions Manchester City with a game in hand.
Man City closed the gap to two points earlier in the day but Arsenal responded superbly, edging out United and boosting their title hopes.
Newcastle United have only lost one game all season to climb to third, 11 points behind Arsenal and level on points with fourth-placed Manchester United.
United boosted their top-four hopes with a huge win over Man City last weekend but only picked up one point from their next two games, allowing Tottenham to move to within three points of the Champions League places.
Brighton, Fulham and Brentford make up the next three places, with former title winners Liverpool and Chelsea down in 9th and 10th respectively following poor runs.
Asked for his top-four prediction, Saha told Betfred: ‘I believe it will be Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle United, the four sides who occupy those positions at the moment.
‘You can see Manchester United finishing either second or third because they’re playing very well at the moment.
‘I believe it will be those four sides and I have no doubt about it. Newcastle have done tremendously well this season and deserve to be in the Champions League.
‘It will also provide them with a boost for their recruitment over the summer and it’s good for the Premier League.’
Saha also backed Arsenal to go on to win their first Premier League title since 2004, adding: ‘They look really good.
‘They’re in a great position and have a game in hand, so it’s hard to see them drop many, many points.
‘They’ve still got a number of crucial games left, but they showed on Sunday against Manchester United that they’re very concentrated, very professional and they can remain at the top of the table.
‘It would be nice for the Premier League to see Arsenal upset the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool, who’ve been at the top for the last four or five years.’
