Final Premier League table according to ‘Super Computer’ prediction
How will the final Premier League table look?
Only four games into the season but already people are forming various opinions about the 20 clubs.
The great thing about football is that once a season kicks off, it so quickly feels like it has never been away, give or take the odd international break…
Taking advantage of this first international break, Talksport have updated their ‘Super Computer’ predicted final Premier League Table:
1 Man City
5 Man Utd
8 West Ham
14 Crystal Palace
15 Newcastle United
16 Sheff Utd
19 Aston Villa
Now I have my suspicions that the Talksport ‘Super Computer’ is just two blokes (or women…) sitting in an office, looking at the games so far, then deciding between themselves what is now likely to happen.
However, I think it is interesting to see what is predicted from a neutral (non-Newcastle) perspective.
All very predictable at the top with the usual six clubs but I do think Liverpool are going to be very close to Man City again, they are a class apart the pair of them. Can’t see Arsenal as high as fourth although Man Utd and Chelsea aren’t very convincing. Could maybe a Leicester, West Ham or Everton break into the top six? They need to find the consistency to beat the lower clubs home and away, week in and week out.
At the bottom, a very similar usual story. The relegation battle seen to be pretty much between the promoted clubs and those who struggled last season (and in many cases the season before as well).
Even though Norwich hammered Newcastle, they have conceded nine goals in their three other games and I think they will continue to do that, with the odd decent result on days when they manage to score more than the opposition.
I would like to think Villa and Brighton would fill the other two places but I think the Seagulls have looked much improved in games I have seen due to their summer signings, whilst Villa spent big and I have a feeling they will end up ok.
Watford were terrible last week against Newcastle and I think if you add maybe Crystal Palace, the other two relegation candidates will be from this trio.
Here’s hoping Steve Bruce has luck on his side.
