Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United all face mixed fortunes this season according to a supercomputer prediction, which has estimated the final points total for each team
Manchester City will fall just short of matching Liverpool’s Premier League points total from last season, but will win the title by 19 points according to a supercomputer prediction.
Pep Guardiola’s side are running away with the title at the moment, and it looks like a third title in four years is guaranteed, with the prediction stating they’ll win the title with 95 points.
However, the spaces behind them are much more hotly-contested.
Currently, Manchester United are occupying second place by just a point ahead of Leicester, who are four points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel’s side aren’t guaranteed a top-four spot, however, as West Ham are breathing down their necks and are just two points behind them.
But according to a FootballWebPages, Chelsea will do enough to secure Champions League football for next season, regardless of whether they win this year’s competition.
The prediction has them finishing in fourth place, five points ahead of fifth.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho will reportedly lose his job if Spurs miss out on a top four place, and it seems he’ll be out of luck at the end of the season.
