More Reliable Than An Octopus 2017/18? (2/2/18)
A new season, a new special computer crunching the numbers to determine the final Premier League positions for 2017/18.
Here are the updated Premier League predictions for the season of 2017/18 after all sides have played 25 games of the campaign.
Who goes down?! Who is the current favourite to lift the title this year.
Well you don't have to guess.
With all playing 25 games in the Premier League season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are the current leaders - Manchester City. Their early season form has seen them leap to top spot and they haven't wavered since.
The computer currently has them remaining in top spot, ahead of Manchester United by 18 points, and Liverpool by 22 points.
Chelsea take fourth place at the moment on goal difference as they are predicted to be level on 81 points with Liverpool, but Tottenham Hotspur are eight points behind them in fifth place, with Arsenal taking sixth spot on 64 points.
At the other other end of the table, the three sides currently predicted for the drop are Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion and Southampton - with Brighton escaping a Championship return by two points.
The one thing that can't be ignored though is there is a hell of a lot of football still to be played even though we find ourselves in February and sides that have started well may fade away and others could find form as the months tick by, but this is a bit of fun - I wouldn't bet your house on it!
The predictions are a reflection on the season so far, and absolutely nothing more, and in most cases the next fixture day could cause wholescale changes to the table.
