Supercomputer Predicts Final Premier League Table, Just ONE Point Separates The Top Three

A supercomputer has predicted a thrilling end to the Premier League season, with just one point set to separate the top three sides.

The table is managed by fivethirtyeight.com and sees Manchester City retain the title with 82 points, while Liverpool finish second on goal difference with the same number of points as City, and Chelsea sit third on 81 points.

Manchester United take the fourth and final Champions League spot with an underwhelming tally of 64 points - 18 points adrift of top spot.

The table was updated on 31st October and makes for some scary viewing for Newcastle United fans down the other end of the scale.

Newcastle are still waiting for their first win of the season after 10 games and the Magpies are forecast to finish with a measly tally of 31 points, leaving them facing the prospect of Championship football next season.

West Ham United are one of the big winners from the predictions, and they are set for a fifth-place finish - one place higher than what they managed last season. David Moyes' side secured a third consecutive Premier League victory with an emphatic 4-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, and could enjoy another season of Europa League football at the London Stadium.

Brighton & Hove Albion may also make it into the Europa Conference League should this prediction come true, with Graham Potter's side currently place in seventh with 55 points. It would comfortably be their highest-ever Premier League finish, after previously finishing 15th in the 2019/20 season with 41 points.

Tottenham Hotspur are set to finish eighth, but this could change if Spurs improve their results following Nuno Espirito Santo's departure.

There are no surprises to see Norwich City bottom of the table with 25 points, while Claudio Ranieri's appointment as Watford boss is not enough to prevent them succumbing to the drop in 18th place on 35 points.

The table in full can be viewed below.

It will be interesting to see how close this prediction turns out to be come May.
