A supercomputer has made a bold new prediction for the hotly contested Premier League title race between Manchester City and Arsenal after the World Cup.
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side have been in sensational form this season and stunned rival supporters with their surprise challenge for the Premier League title.
Arsenal have won 12 league matches and drawn once this season, with their only league defeat coming to Manchester United at Old Trafford in September.
Arsenal sit top of the league table with 37 points after 14 matches, with the Gunners leading City by five points.
Pep Guardiola’s men, on the other hand, will be hopeful of reducing Arsenal’s lead in the coming months after the end of the World Cup in Qatar.
A supercomputer has now predicted that defending Premier League champions City will edge out Arsenal for the league title this season.
According to BonusCodeBets’ supercomputer, City will win a third consecutive Premier League title after they usurp Arsenal from the top of the league table.
After missing out on the league title, Arsenal will finish behind City in second place and secure a place in the Champions League next season.
The supercomputer believes Liverpool will see a bounce in the second half of the campaign and finish third, with Tottenham securing the final top-four spot.
Newcastle, who are currently third and challenging for a top-four spot, are now predicted to finish ahead of the Red Devils this season.
Eddie Howe’s men are predicted to miss out on the top four and finish fifth, while Erik ten Hag’s side have to settle for a sixth-place finish.

“Our supercomputer has predicted Arsenal will start to crumble and finish below Manchester City but remain ahead of Liverpool,” a BonusCodeBets spokesperson said.
“Tottenham are set to finish fourth and it might come with a bit of a shock that Newcastle are predicted to finish fifth, ahead of Manchester United in sixth and Chelsea in seventh.
“Wolves, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest are set to finish at the bottom of the table and Bournemouth could be heading back to the Championship after a short stint in the Premier League.
“Arsenal sit at the top of the Premier League at the moment ahead of Manchester City, so it will be interesting to see when things start to turn around.”
