Allardyce can see Everton breaking the top six

Former Everton boss Sam Allardyce can see his old club breaking the top six this season.

Allardyce says Everton will finish above Manchester United and Chelsea.

“I think Everton should break into the top six and if they're going to break in, this is the season to do it," Allardyce told talkSPORT.

“You've got the difficult situation at Chelsea and I feel at Manchester United as well.

“United have gone even younger than Chelsea have with their squad this year; they've trimmed their squad down to the smallest number of experienced players I've probably ever seen.

“I think Man United might find breaking in a bit of a struggle, so will Chelsea, so that gives an opening and an opportunity for a team like Everton."
