Supercomputer predicts Manchester City to retain their Premier League crown


The Premier League season is well underway after the first four fixtures.

It already seems as though Manchester City and Liverpool are alone in realistically competing for the title and Leicester City are the only other side to reach the international break unbeaten.

Nevertheless, although Arsenal and Tottenham have already fallen to defeats, they are well in the running for the Champions League places on seven and five points respectively.

Manchester United are also level pegging with Spurs in the points department, but the feeling around Old Trafford is far more pessimistic after going three games without a victory.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard has been given a tough welcome to the world of management, drawing with Leicester and Sheffield United in his first two games at Stamford Bridge.

At the other end of the table, it looks as though Norwich City, Aston Villa and Watford are all going to be embroiled in a fight to avoid Championship football next season.

And breathe. So, it's fair to say that plenty has happened already and it would far easier to make our customary Premier League predictions with some of the evidence we've seen so far.

Bearing that in mind, talkSPORT have brushed the cobwebs off their supercomputer that, despite having already forecasted the table this season, now has far more data to work with.
