Liverpool’s Premier League Title Challenge Gets A Major Prediction From Supercomputer

And FiveThirtyEight's supercomputer suggests that Liverpool will not only capture the league title, but they will also break City's 100-point tally set in the 2017-18 campaign.

The Reds are expected to finish the season with 101 points and the supercomputer believes that there is a 99 per cent of them finishing top of the Premier League.

Defending champions City are expected to finish a distant second on 82 points, while Leicester City will secure third place with 69 points.

Chelsea will be the final team to finish in the top four and secure Champions League football for the following season, according to FiveThirtyEight.

Tottenham will finish in seventh on 56 points and Arsenal will end the season with 49 points in 10th place, two points behind ninth-placed Everton.

Liverpool currently have 64 points in the league table after beating Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds hold a whopping 16-point lead over City and even have a match in hand over Pep Guardiola's men.

Liverpool boss Klopp said that he is happy fans are singing "we're going to win the league," but he insisted that his side remain focused on their title-challenging ambitions.

"They can sing that," he said.

"I am not here to dictate what they sing.

"If our fans were not in a good mood now, that would be really strange.

"Of course, they are allowed to dream and sing whatever they want and, as long as they do their job in the moment we play, all fine.

"But we will not be part of that party yet."

Liverpool will continue their blistering campaign on Thursday with an away trip to Wolves.
