The final Premier League table remains uncertain at this moment in time, as the vast majority of teams have been halted nine matches from the end of the season.

The spread of the coronavirus across the UK and Europe as a whole has ground football to a halt, with Spurs currently down in eighth in the league table.

It was announced earlier this week that there would be no more Premier League until April 30 at the very earliest as the country looks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (BBC).

Chelsea currently occupy fourth spot in the table, which would guarantee Champions League qualification come the end of the season if they remain there.

Man United are three points behind the Blues on 45, with Wolves and Sheffield both on 43, Spurs on 41, and Arsenal on 40 points, although the Blades and Gunners have a game in hand.

The Euro Club Index has now rated the top Premier League clubs based on their chances of finishing in the top four come the end of the campaign, which the Daily Star has labelled a ‘scientific prediction’.

Liverpool, of course, are guaranteed a spot at this point. Leicester have a 94.81% chance, followed by Chelsea on 80.37%, and Manchester United on 73.75%.

Wolves and Tottenham come next with chances of 17.34% and 16.24% respectively, implying that Spurs could finish sixth in the table.

Of course, Man City are emitted from the calculations for now due to their European ban which is under appeal (BBC).
