Premier League table predicted by stats geeks: Man Utd in 7th, Liverpool 3rd, Chelsea 2nd | Football | Sport

Premier League table standings could all change before the end of the season, but teams have settled into their rhythm with a third of the campaign under their belts.

Manchester United have endured a rough start to the season and fans can expect that to continue until May, according to Football Web Pages’ predicted final table.

Chelsea and Liverpool look set for a thrilling battle for second, while north London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham will go head-to-head for a Champions League spot.

The predictions make grim reading for Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic who is under increasing pressure to turn his side’s fortunes around.

Take a look below to reveal the predicted Premier League table final standings according to Football Web Pages.

20 (R). Huddersfield (Current position: 18th)

The Terriers are set to go down without a fight on 14pts.

19 (R). Fulham (Current position: 20th)

Despite heavy summer investment, the west London side are likely to drop.

18 (R). Cardiff (Current position: 19th)

The Bluebirds will continue to remain in the hunt for survival until the very end, but they’ll just miss out.

17. Southampton (Current position: 16th)

Mark Hughes is unlikely to last the season with the Saints on course for another narrow escape.

16. Crystal Palace (Current position: 14th)

A lot of the Eagles’ hopes rest on the shoulders of a fit and healthy Wilfried Zaha.

15. Newcastle (Current position: 17th)

Rafa Benitez guided the Magpies to their first win of the season last weekend, and he will claw them to safety.

14. Burnley (Current position: 15th)

Sean Dyche won’t be able to replicate last season’s wonders, but he’ll keep Burnley established in the top flight.

13. West Ham (Current position: 13th)

The Hammers’ heavy investment won’t bear fruit this season.

12. Brighton (Current position: 12th)

Chris Hughton’s work on the south coast has not been recognised to the extent it should be. He will produce the goods once again for the Seagulls.

11. Wolves (Current position: 11th)

The Premier League new boys arrived this season with lofty ambitions, but they will have to wait for top-half finish.

10. Watford (Current position: 8th)

Javi Gracia’s side have been inconsistent so far. Excellent and awful. That could cost them.

9. Leicester (Current position: 10th)

This season will be defined by last week’s tragedy as opposed to any great honours this season, but the Foxes will enjoy a strong season nonetheless.

8. Everton (Current position: 9th)

The Toffees will enjoy a solid season as they continue towards becoming a force to be reckoned with once again.

7. Manchester United (Current position: 7th)

United have endured a turbulent campaign so far… and that is unlikely to end any time soon.

6. Bournemouth (Current position: 6th)

Eddie Howe is working miracles at the Vitality Stadium. The Cherries could be set for a run in Europe if they maintain their form.

5. Tottenham (Current position: 4th)

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are in danger of their potential going unfulfilled, especially if they miss out on the top four this season.

4. Arsenal (Current position: 5th)

Unai Emery has got his team flying along in all competitions, and he looks set to restore Arsenal to the top of European football at the first attempt.

3. Liverpool (Current position: 3rd)

The Reds will enjoy a strong battle with Chelsea all season, but Football Web Pages say they will finish third based on goal difference.

2. Chelsea (Current position: 2nd)

If the Blues are to finish second this season, Eden Hazard will have to produce mega form. So far, he has.

1. Manchester City (Current position: 1st)

Pep Guardiola’s men look unstoppable at the moment. It’s tough to see them dropping any points, and the predicted table suggests they will run riot in 2018/19.
