Recent events in the Premier League have given us a tiny glimmer of hope that the title isn’t already over.
Chelsea may be running away with it and, up until last weekend, Man City looked to have secured second spot. But now it’s got a little bit interested. Liverpool are on a run of exceptional form, Man United are finally showing positive signs under Louis Van Gaal and Arsenal are executing their annual push for top four expertly.
So how’s it all going to finish up? Don’t forget, Southampton and Tottenham are still considered genuine contenders to upset the top four apple cart, despite no one genuinely believing they can do it.
Thanks to a Reddit user with a hell of a lot of time on his hands, we might just have some pretty decent insight into what’s going to happen between now and the end of May.
Redditer heardc10 looked at the remaining fixtures of Chelsea, City, Arsenal, United, Liverpool, Spurs & Southampton, through a load of data and variables at them (key below) and came up with a pretty interesting look at what the top seven will end up looking like.
First of all, the key is as follows…
And now each team’s remaining fixtures, complete with all the variables and how many points they’ll get from each game…
And if all that happens as it should do, then the final table will look something like this…
So that might just mean Man United and Liverpool’s Champions League dreams could be decided by goal difference. Chelsea win it easily and Arsenal finish in the top four for the millionth consecutive season.
Everyone else is left disappointed. Meh.
