Tottenham have been predicted to pip North London rivals Arsenal to fourth place, according to a supercomputer from SBK.
Spurs currently occupy the final Champions League spot after jumping ahead of the Gunners with Sunday’s 5-1 hammering of Newcastle.
But it only came after Mikel Arteta’s men failed to retake the place after suffering a damaging 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday night.
Both sides are currently level on 54 points, though Spurs boast a superior goal difference following the weekend’s big swing in results.
However, Arsenal have a game in hand away to Chelsea to try to take advantage of, while the eagerly-anticipated North London derby has been rescheduled for May 12 – just 10 days before the end of the season.
The supercomputer has also predicted that Manchester City will retain the league title ahead of Liverpool, while Chelsea have to settle for third.
It has also tipped Norwich, Watford and Burnley to be relegated to the Championship, with Everton only just securing their top-flight status.
The full predicted table was as follows:
- Man City
- Man United
- West Ham
- Crystal Palace
- Aston Villa
Spurs Web Opinion
Tottenham’s good run of form has put them firmly in the picture to qualify for next season’s Champions League, but they cannot ease off.
There are a good amount of games remaining for points to be picked up – and dropped – so they have to keep taking it game by game to keep themselves in the hunt.
