Supercomputer predicts Premier League winners, top four and relegated teams
| Last updated
Manchester United will miss out on Champions League football this season after finishing behind Spurs, Aston Villa and Brighton, according to the latest Premier League projections.
Erik ten Hag's side recorded their second successive league win on Saturday night, as goals from Scott McTominay and Diogo Dalot sealed all three points at Bramall Lane.
But prior to narrow victories over Sheffield United and Brentford, the Reds struggled for consistency, with notable defeats against Spurs, Arsenal and Brighton in August and September.
They have shown positive signs in recent weeks but a projections graph, created by Twitter user Aurel Nazmiu, has calculated the final Premier League table based on recent results – and it's bad news for United fans.
As pictured below, reigning champions Manchester City have a 57% chance of lifting the title again, while Liverpool [17%], Arsenal [16%] and Tottenham [4%] make up the top four.
Newcastle are odds-on favourite to qualify for Europe, while in-form Aston Villa, who have performed admirably under Unai Emery this season, will finish sixth.
Manchester United, meanwhile, are projected to miss out on Champions League football. In fact, the chance of them lifting the Premier League is below 1%.
The probability of Erik ten Hag's side finishing in the UCL spots is currently at 22%, according to the graphic.
In regards to relegation, Sheffield United, Luton and Bournemouth are expected to fall down to the Championship, while Wolves are 6% safer after their late winner against the Cherries on Saturday.
Here is the table in full:
