The final Premier League table predicted - it’ll be a relief for Newcastle United

Chronicle Live Sports 2 months ago

Newcastle United will avoid relegation - just - while Liverpool are set to end their long wait for a Premier League title.

That is according to the latest prediction from Five Thirty Eight - the brainchild of world famous statistician Nate Silver.

Silver was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world after correctly predicting the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 US elections - but his background is actually in sports stats.

The 41-year-old rose to fame for developing a system for forecasting performances and career development of Major League Baseball stars before he launched the blog Five Thirty Eight in 2008, using it to correctly call the subsequent two US elections.

His website has now produced a Premier League model and, after the latest round of games, they have predicted how the table will finish.

Liverpool will see off competition to win the title ahead of Man City by three points with Chelsea finishing in third.

Arsenal will be back in the top four after three years outside while Spurs and Leicester make up the top six.

At the bottom, Aston Villa, Watford and Norwich City will face life in the Championship.

The predicted Premier League table

1. Liverpool - 90 points

2. Man City - 87 points

3. Chelsea - 69 points

4. Arsenal - 63 points

5. Tottenham - 59 points

6. Leicester - 58 points

7. Manchester United - 55 points

8. Crystal Palace - 50 points
