Supercomputer predicts Premier League top four with mixed results for Man Utd, Liverpool and Arsenal
| Last updated
A supercomputer has predicted how the Premier League table will look come the end of the season and where the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal will finish.
Manchester City have unsurprisingly flown out of the blocks this season, winning four out of four matches to regain their place at the top of the table.
For the first time, five teams could qualify for next season's Champions League after UEFA confirmed that a further four European teams will be added to the draw depending on which countries perform best across all UEFA competitions.
Opta data has now predicted who will finish in the top half of the Premier League table, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle tipped to finish outside of the top four.
In first place, drum roll please... yes, it's Manchester City with a likelihood percentage of 99.93% to qualify for the Champions League and a 0.06% of qualifying for the Europa League.
Liverpool are in second place, despite a disappointing 2022/23 campaign which saw Jurgen Klopp's side finish fifth in the top-flight.
Last season's runners-up Arsenal round off the top three, with an 82.43% chance of qualifying for the Champions League, ahead of north London rivals Tottenham, who have been given a 31.68% of finishing inside the top four.
Manchester United are expected to miss out after an unconvincing start to their campaign which included defeats to Tottenham and Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have been tipped to finish in 11th place, marking an improvement on last season's 12th-placed finish.
Here is the full list:
- Man City
- Man Utd
- West Ham
- Aston Villa
