AI supercomputer reveals the likely final Premier League table


AI supercomputer reveals the likely final Premier League table… with one team making a miraculous escape from relegation, and two giants missing out on the Champions League – but where does your club finish?

  • We have moved into the final month of the 2022-23 Premier League season
  • An AI supercomputer has revealed the most likely final Premier League table
  • It has predicted the champions, the top four and who will get relegated this term 

An AI supercomputer has revealed the most likely final Premier League table as we enter the business end of the season, and it has thrown up a few surprises.

The relegation battle looks set to go right to the wire with the bottom five clubs separated by just six points.

Southampton, Everton and Leicester are currently stuck in the relegation zone, and the former two have been given little hope of getting out of their precarious positions.

Ruben Selles’ Saints, who are six points from safety after losing to south coast rivals Bournemouth on Thursday, have just a 2.3 per cent chance of staying up and an 82.1 per cent chance of finishing bottom.

Things aren’t looking much better for Everton following their dismal 4-1 defeat at home to Newcastle. The Toffees have a 74 per cent chance of being relegated from England’s top-flight for the first time since 1951.

Leicester are expected to avoid the drop, but Everton look set to be relegated for the first time in over 70 years

Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest face a nervy final few weeks, and the supercomputer thinks they are more likely to go down than Leicester

There is hope for Leicester, though, who have been given a 66.7 per cent chance of avoiding the drop. The Foxes have won just one of their last 10 matches, but have taken four points from their last two games under Dean Smith and are now expected to pull off a miraculous escape.

Despite currently hovering above the bottom three, Nottingham Forest and Leeds are seen as more likely to suffer relegation than Leicester.

Forest got a much-needed 3-1 win against Brighton on Wednesday to climb out of the drop zone, but still have a 46.3 per cent chance of going straight back down to the Championship.

Leeds’ survival chances aren’t much better, as they have been given a 45.7 per cent chance of relegation, with Javi Gracia’s team facing a tricky run-in that includes games against Manchester City and Newcastle.

At the other end of the table, City look to have wrapped up the title after thrashing Arsenal, with the supercomputer revealing they have a 92.8 per chance of winning their fifth championship in six years.

The Gunners look almost certain to finish second now, but there is a 0.7 per cent chance of them dropping to third.

Mikel Arteta’s men have failed to win any of their last four games, yet still have a 13-point lead over third-placed Newcastle, although the Magpies do have a game in hand.

Man City won the title last season and are expected to retain their crown next month

The race for Champions League football also looks to be nearly over, according to the supercomputer.

Newcastle have a 94.9 per cent chance of getting back into Europe’s elite club competition for the first time in 19 years, while Manchester United look set to join them, with their percentage up at 94.3.

Liverpool are viewed as the most likely to make a late run for the top four having won three games on the trot. However, they may have left things a little too late, and have been given just an 8.8 per cent chance of getting into the Champions League places.

Another ‘Big Six’ club also appear almost certain to miss out on the top four, as Tottenham’s likelihood of overtaking Newcastle or United is down at just 0.3 per cent despite the team fighting back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against the Red Devils on Thursday. 

Aston Villa have scored in all 20 of their top-flight matches since Unai Emery took charge to fly up the table.

They have moved to within six points of the top four, but have played two more games than United and their chances of getting into the Champions League are down at 0.2 per cent.

Brighton still have eight games left to play and face a congested fixture list between now and the end of the season.

This could explain why the Seagulls have just a 0.7 per cent chance of finishing fourth.

Man United are firm favourites to hold onto a top four place to return to the Champions League

Eddie Howe’s Newcastle are also expected to finish in the top four after an excellent campaign

If Man United and Newcastle do hold on, this will mean no Champions League football for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s disastrous campaign is not expected to get any better.

They have just a 12.1 per cent chance of climbing into the top half after losing five straight games under interim boss Frank Lampard.

Remaining in 11th place remains the most likely scenario and has been given a 43.1 per cent chance of happening.

But the Blues have a very difficult run-in on paper that sees them take on Arsenal, City, United and Newcastle, and there is a 0.1 per cent chance they could finish as low as 16th.
