Chelsea set to win title, predicts simulator

A sophisticated computer simulator has predicted that Chelsea will win the Premier League next season whilst a Bale departure would spell disaster for Spurs.

American company Bloomberg Sports designed the data-crunching programme to simulate the 2013/14 fixtures 10,000 times before averaging out the results to reveal theoretically accurate predictions.

And it seems the computer is saying 'yes' to Jose Mourinho as it predicts the club will win the title in style with the former-Real Madrid coach bringing back the glory days to Stamford Bridge at the first time of asking.

Chelsea's new signings Marco van Ginkel, Andre Schurrle and Mark Schwarzer as well as Mourinho have done enough to convince the complex algorithm that they'll fend of challenges from Manchester City and United.

City are set to finish second with new United manager David Moyes kicking off his Red Devil's career with a disappointing third place finish.

It says that Chelsea will get around 81.7 points, which ousts Manchester City's 80.8 and United's 80.3 average.

The story is not great for Tottenham either, as the simulator predicts that they will miss out on a Champions League place again even if Gareth Bale stays in north London. It will get even worse for Andre Villas-Boas if the Welshman does leave.

According to Bloomberg Sports, Spurs have just a 34% chance of reaching the top four with Bale and only 20.4% if he leaves for Real Madrid as expected. 

Arsenal will finish in their favourite fourth place just ahead of their rivals Spurs in fifth.

The three Premier League newcomers Cardiff, Crystal Palace and Hull are predicted to struggle with the simulator believing they'll all go straight back down to the Championship.

The simulation relies on the adjusted values of each individual player as well as the past performances of the clubs against one another.
