More Reliable Than An Octopus 2017/18? (4/12/17)

More Reliable Than An Octopus 2017/18? (4/12/17)

A new season, a new special computer crunching the numbers to determine the final Premier League positions for 2017/18.

Here are the updated Premier League predictions for the season of 2017/18 after all sides have played eight games of the campaign.

Who goes down?! Who is the current favourite to lift the title this year.

Well you don't have to guess.

With most playing 15 games in the Premier League season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are the current leaders - Manchester City. Their early season form has seen them leap to top spot with 13 wins.

The computer currently has them remaining in top spot, ahead of Manchester United by eleven points, and Chelsea by a whopping 14 points.

Liverpool take fourth place at the moment, predicted to be sat on 78 points, with Tottenham Hotspur in fifth and Watfor in sixth.

At the other other end of the table, the three sides currently predicted for the drop are West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Swansea - with West Ham five points from safety and West Bromwich Albion.

The one thing that can't be ignored though is there is a hell of a lot of football still to be played and sides start well and fade away and others find form as the months tick by, but this is a bit of fun - I wouldn't bet your house on it! We do near the half way point of the year though so the shape of the final table will slowly show itself.

The predictions are a reflection on the season so far, and absolutely nothing more, and in most cases the next fixture weekend could cause wholescale changes to the table.
