Opta Has Simulated The Final Table for the 2019/20 Premier League Season
By Mike Parrott
Stats analysis company, Opta have released their statistical prediction of the final Premier League table if it were to resume in the 2019/20 season. Their independently-made algorithm would have Liverpool winning their first Premier League title in their history.
With the current COVID-19 pandemic causing the suspension of the majority of European football, including the Premier League, stats analysis company, Opta, has predicted the final outcome of the Season had it not been suspended.
The Opta Premier League table top four is as following:
1. Liverpool - 101 points
2. Manchester City - 80 points
3. Leicester City - 67 points
4. Chelsea - 63 points

The Champions League places would go to the four clubs mentioned above with Chelsea narrowly beating Manchester United to fourth place with United predicted to end on 61 points, only two behind Chelsea.

However, if the Manchester City ban on Champions League football is still in place then United would make it in place of their city-rivals.
The predicted point hauls would also mean that Liverpool would become the Centurion team in Premier League history and would break the record for most points after Manchester City's haul of 100 points in the 2017/18 season.
The relegated teams though follows:
18. Bournemouth - 36 points
19. Aston Villa - 32 points
20. Norwich City - 29 points

The prediction would mean that the bottom three would stay the same as the current bottom three are in the table.
Villa and Norwich would see themselves dropping back down to the Championship, while Bournemouth would see their Premier League status finally diminish.
