With the Premier League fixtures for the 2020/21 season being released last week, it is that time of the year again when fans and pundits start predicting who will finish where.

There is some cause for optimism for Tottenham fans heading into the season, given the strong manner in which Jose Mourinho’s men finished the 2019/20 campaign.

Tottenham only lost once in their final nine games after the restart, a run which enabled the club to sneak into sixth place and book their place in the Europa League.

Spurs will be hoping to carry on the momentum into the start of next season but they will be aiming a lot higher than sixth in what will be Mourinho’s first full season in charge.

However, according to the predictions of Unikrn’s supercomputer (as relayed by The Mirror), the Lilywhites will once again miss out on the top four next season.

Based on its calculations, Spurs will end the season in fifth place, one place ahead of their North London rivals Arsenal. Manchester City are predicted to win the title next season just ahead of Liverpool, with Manchester United and Chelsea rounding off the top four.
