The final Premier League table of the 2023-24 season has been predicted by a super computer, backing Liverpool to be part of the title race, along with Manchester City and Arsenal.
Liverpool maintained their push for the Premier League title in their 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
With more than a quarter of the season played, a cluster of teams have emerged to challenge reigning champions Manchester City.
Tottenham Hotspur are the unlikely leaders after 10 games, two points ahead of Arsenal and City, with Jurgen Klopp’s side three points off top spot.
It has been a strong start from the Reds, given that the club overhauled their midfield options during the summer. Their tally is made even more impressive when considering the points Liverpool dropped in their controversial defeat to Spurs in September.
After missing out on a Champions League place last term, few will expect the Reds to become distracted by their commitments in the Europa League as the team looks to launch another title bid. Bettingexpert’s supercomputer BETSiE has predicted Liverpool’s chances of claiming a second Premier League trophy.
Pep Guardiola’s City side are still viewed as favourites to win the league for a record-breaking fourth time in a row, following their 3-0 win over local rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
The supercomputer estimates that last season’s treble winners will finish with around 83.8 points, giving the club a 52.8 per cent chance of finishing first.
However, Liverpool are considered to be a prominent part of the title race. BETSiE predicts that Klopp’s team will earn 78 points but are given a 16.8 per cent chance of upsetting the odds to win the league.
Champions League qualification is not expected to be an issue, this time around, with the club given an 83.8 per cent shot at securing a top four place.
Arsenal have been seen as City’s most likely challengers, though. The Gunners, who recorded an emphatic 5-0 win over struggling Sheffield United, have been given a predicted 79.6 points tally and a 22.7 per cent chance of ending their 20-year title drought, having pushed City close throughout last season.
Current leaders Spurs are still expected to finish fifth, behind Newcastle United, on around 70.4 points, with just a 1.9 per cent hope of staying top.
Following their League Cup tie with Bournemouth in midweek, Liverpool will have the opportunity to continue their title charge, away at Luton on Sunday.
Meanwhile, City will be expected to pick up three points at home to Bournemouth on Saturday but Arsenal face a tricky trip to Newcastle United. Spurs will host Chelsea on Monday, November 6.
