Supercomputer Makes Predictions For Upcoming Round Of Premier League Fixtures

A supercomputer has predicted all the scorelines in the next batch of Premier League fixtures courtesy of BT Sport's 'The Script' creation.

By now we should all be well aware that it's incredibly difficult to script the great game we all love because of its sheer unpredictability but BT have enlisted the help of Squawka, Opta and Google to do some serious number-crunching.

They've put together an artificial intelligence (AI) driven script for 2019/20 - and it includes every single scoreline from every game.

The explanation of the super-computer reads: "Using machine learning (ML), the system calculated the relative strengths of each team rating attacking strength (goals) and defensive solidity (goals conceded) based on historic data from thousands of matches over previous seasons.

"It then worked out the probability of every conceivable scoreline for all future games - home and away - as well as goalscorers and assist makers.

"Random events that could occur during a season - such as injuries and player transfers - were simulated to give an even more accurate set of predictions. Finally, the data was brought to life in an action-packed script - telling the story of the season for every team, adding data visualisation to dramatise the key stats."

This week, the supercomputer reckons Liverpool will beat Arsenal 2-0 in the pick of the weekend's games, a first win for Frank Lampard as Chelsea manager and high-scoring wins for both Manchester clubs and Spurs.
