Liverpool will win the league again this season, according to the Supercomputer prediction for the final table of the Premier League, but that makes it a worrying read for Arsenal fans.
We only have 14 games in the Premier League season, but it already looks like it will be closer than last year, when Jurgen Klopp’s team won with a title with 18 points from Manchester City.
So far in this term, the lead over second-placed Leicester City has been just four points, and it could be even less if Manchester United can get their game in hand over the champions.
However, while the title race would probably be closer this season, it hardly couldn’t be, and Liverpool’s injuries the Reds will still win the league.
That’s what Sun says, who says the supercomputer has predicted the final league table for this season.
Liverpool, Leicester, United and Chelsea will certainly be happy with their positions, and the Foxes will hope to avoid a collapse in the second half of the season like last year.
Southampton and Everton will no doubt be very happy with their fifth and sixth placements, but some teams at the top will not be happy at all.
Jose Mourinho’s Spurs, who were considered contenders for the title just a few weeks ago, took seventh place, and Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola is even more than his rivals in eighth, who did not fail to finish among the top four since 2010.
Down at the bottom, Mikel Arteta will be very happy to learn that his team will not be knocked out, but let’s be honest, 16th place placed is not what the Gunners want.
The former Premier League champions are not having a good season at all, and Arteta has come to criticism lately, as have the players.
The 16-place finish would surely see the former Arsenal midfielder leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season.
Interestingly, the supercomputer thinks that Fulham will manage to escape the fall and that Sheffield United will rise from the bottom, but still go to a lower rank.
At Cottagers, the spot at the bottom of the three is clearly heading towards Burnley, although Sean Dyche’s side already has a history of proving that people are wrong, so an attack against a supercomputer won’t worry them.
What do you think the league table will look like in May?
