Premier League: Who will finish in the top-four this season?


Another Premier League weekend has come and gone.

Manchester City missed the opportunity to clinch the Premier League title after they lost 2-1 to Chelsea.

Manchester United ensured they didn’t inadvertently hand their city rivals the trophy by beating Aston Villa on Sunday.

Later on Sunday, Arsenal relegated West Brom by beating them 3-1 as the Baggies joined Sheffield United in being demoted to The Championship.

So with the title all but wrapped up and Fulham seemingly set to the third side relegated, all attentions will turn to the race for Europe.

Chelsea’s victory at City looks to have sealed their top-four place, joining City and Man United in next season’s Champions League.


But who will finish fourth?

It was a good weekend for Liverpool as they beat Southampton and watched Leicester lose to Newcastle and Everton beat West Ham.

It means that if Liverpool and Everton both win their games in hand, there will be five points separating four clubs in the search for fourth.


It’s still in Leicester’s hands but the Foxes have Man United, Chelsea and Tottenham left to play this season. And the nightmares of last season may come back to haunt them.

So, how is it going to finish?

Well, we turned to data experts FiveThirtyEight to see how they think the Premier League table will finish.

The results? Let’s take a look:

How the final Premier League is projected to look


So, Leicester are set to hang onto fourth spot on 66 points – just one point ahead of Liverpool in fifth. What a final day it’s set to be.

In sixth is West Ham, who are set to finish just three points adrift of Leicester in fifth.

Spurs are two points further back, one ahead of Everton. Arsenal are projected to finish one point ahead of Leeds, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side in tenth.

There’s nothing too interesting about the bottom half of the table with Fulham eight points adrift of safety and joining West Brom and Sheffield United in the bottom three.
