Premier League Supercomputer predicts that One point will decide the championship.
A Premier League supercomputer has predicted that the tight title race this season one point will decide the championship.
The news comes after Arsenal with West Ham, which saw them lose a commanding lead after two straight two-goal meltdowns by Arsenal. That came after a similar setback against Liverpool at Anfield the week before. Meanwhile, challenger Manchester City has been consistently winning games.
Having a game in hand over their rivals, Pep Guardiola’s team defeated Leicester City 3-1, cutting the distance to Arsenal to just four points. On May 26, the top two teams in the Premier League will square off at the Etihad. With the supercomputer anticipating the closest of finishes after 38 games, that game may very well determine the championship race.
LegalSportsBooks’ data cruncher(opens in new tab) has calculated each team’s average wins, draws, losses, points earned, goals scored, and goals conceded per game this season to predict the final standings.
Surprisingly, the supercomputer projects Arsenal to win the Premier League for the first time since 2004 while Man City finishes in second place with 89 points, their fourth-lowest total under Pep Guardiola, despite bookmakers now favoring Man City for the championship.
For Arsenal supporters who are beginning to wonder if their young team has the experience to dethrone City’s unbeatable champions, the news will come as a welcome surprise.
The outcome of the competition to earn a spot in Europe this season was predicted by the supercomputer in the meantime. With 75 points, Manchester United is expected to finish third, ahead of Newcastle United, who will also play in the Champions League next year. Due to their propensity for drawing frequently, the Magpies will lose out on third.
Managerless Tottenham and Brighton will finish fifth and sixth, respectively, and earn 66 and 63 points toward the Europa League. Aston Villa, led by Unai Emery, will successfully compete in the European Conference League the following season and make a late push for the top seven.
By three points, Liverpool falls 13 points short of having any chance of competing in the Champions League in the upcoming season. Fulham and Brentford follow Liverpool to round out the top half of the standings.
Chelsea won’t even reach the 50-point threshold by the end of the season, keeping them in 11th place and putting them closer to the bottom six than the top six.
The information at the bottom of the table is equally fascinating. Everton and Nottingham Forest will fight hard until the very end, but they will lose on goal differential, meaning Leicester City will prevail by a score of at least ten goals. For the first time since 2012, Southampton will return to the second division while maintaining its dire position. Along with Leicester, Wolves, Bournemouth, West Ham, and Leeds are also still standing after the 2022–23 relegation fight.
