Supercomputer has now been updated to predict the 2019/20 Premier League table

Manchester City v Liverpool FC - Premier League

It's getting to that time of year. No, not Halloween or Christmas.

It's the point where football fans can no longer sigh, 'Oh, the season's only just begun, give us time...'

We're already getting a better idea of how the Premier League table is shaping up.

Liverpool remain unbeaten after 11 games thanks to an inspired late comeback against Aston Villa. 

After some initial optimism, Norwich are languishing in the relegation zone. 

All the while, Manchester United, Arsenal, and Tottenham go from the sublime to the ridiculous week on week. 

The remainder of the 2019/20 campaign is going to be a fascinating watch and talkSPORT believe they've worked out how it'll all unfold. 

They've utilised a 'Supercomputer', rejigging the data after giving some initial predictions back in September - you can read those HERE. 

September's predictions 

In short, less than two months ago, the computer predicted the following: 

  • Champions: Manchester City 
  • Top four: Liverpool, Tottenham, and Arsenal
  • Fifth and sixth: Manchester United and Chelsea 
  • Relegated: Norwich, Aston Villa, and Brighton 
Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - Premier League

And now? 

  • Champions: Liverpool
  • Top four: Manchester City, Chelsea, and Leicester 
  • Fifth and sixth: Arsenal and Tottenham 
  • Relegated: Watford, Southampton, and Norwich

The new data has it that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United will slump to seventh, their worst finish since David Moyes' tenure. 

The full predicted table, as of November, is as follows: 

1. Liverpool
2. Manchester City
3. Chelsea
4. Leicester City
5. Arsenal
6. Tottenham Hotspur
7. Manchester United
8. Brighton & Hove Albion
9. West Ham United
10. Bournemouth
11. Sheffield United
12. Wolverhampton Wanderers
13. Crystal Palace
14. Everton
15. Burnley 
16. Newcastle United 
17. Aston Villa
18. Norwich City
19. Southampton 
20. Watford 

What a difference a handful of games makes. Not many people tipped Sheffield United to stay up, let alone be pushing for the top half. 

Spurs and Arsenal's respective woes can no longer be dismissed as a blip as the pressure mounts on Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery.

As a result, this could be the first time since 2015 that the Lilywhites fail to make the Champions League spots. 

The story couldn't be more different for Jurgen Klopp, whose Liverpool side are revelling in a six-point gap at the summit already. Mind you, they've thrown away bigger leads than that in the past.

The Supercomputer is, of course, picking up on current trends and a lot can change between now and May.
