Supercomputer Predictions Don’t Make Good Reading For Arsenal

With us now approaching the business end of the Premier League season, everything is still up in the air regarding who’ll win the league, who’ll drop down to the Championship and which teams will occupy the Champions League.

And some people have gone to extreme lengths to discover who will occupy these positions in May, enlisting the help of a supercomputer to generate the end of season standings.

Look how devastated Troopz and Ty are there, clearly after hearing about the impending terrible news generated by the supercomputer. Gutted for them.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently sitting atop the Premier League table, one point clear of second placed Manchester City. The supercomputer has predicted that the Reds will pip Pep Guardiola’s men to the title by one point, with 99 points to City’s 98.


 

3Meanwhile, at the other end of the table, it’s bad news for Huddersfield, Cardiff and Fulham…

The predictions were made before Claudio Ranieri left the Cottagers today, although caretaker manager Scott Parker will have to perform a minor miracle to lead them to safety.

As it stands, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s revitalised Manchester United will grab the coveted fourth spot, ahead of Chelsea in fifth and Arsenal in sixth.


 

5And here’s the table in full…

Of course, given Spurs’ current troubles and a victory in Saturday’s North London Derby bringing Arsenal to within a point of Mauricio Pochettino’s men, all of the supercomputer’s work could easily begin to come undone this weekend.

Here’s hoping.
