We’re 12 matches into the Premier League season and things are starting to heat up. However, as we enter December, things are about to be stepped up a notch or two.
The hectic festive period is a real ‘make-or-break’ time for clubs with them playing several matches in a short space of time. Who will have the squad capable of coping with demands of three matches a week?
While the English top-flight is probably the most unpredictable league in European football - just look at Crystal Palace’s victory over Chelsea and Huddersfield’s win against Manchester United - a 'Super Computer' has attempted to make a big prediction.
However, while the average football fan might not be able to guess what is going to happen, the ‘Super Computer’ has a better chance.
talkSPORT have fed data into their machine and it’s churned out the final Premier League table - and it makes for very interesting reading.
While it’s looking increasingly likely that Manchester City will stroll to glory, the race for the top-four, as always, is very exciting.
United, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal are all vying for the remaining three spots if City do win the league.
Meanwhile, at the bottom, the likes of Crystal Palace, Swansea, West Ham and West Brom will all need to significantly improve if they don’t want to be embroiled in a relegation fight come the end of the season.
Super Computer's predicted table
So, what has the computer predicted?
Here is the final table:
20 - West Brom
19 - Crystal Palace
18 - West Ham
17 - Swansea
16 - Brighton
15 - Huddersfield
14 - Bournemouth
13 - Stoke City
12 - Newcastle
11 - Watford
10 - Southampton
9 - Everton
8 - Leicester City
7 - Burnley
