A new season, a new special computer crunching the numbers to determine the final Premier League positions for 2016/17.

Fans who want to watch the Euro Club Index’s final results after each matchday can do so by clicking here.

Who goes down?! Who is the current favourite to lift the title this year.

Well you don’t have to guess, the link above will tell you, as will looking further down this piece.

With eleven games played in the Premier League season of 2016/17, the current favourite to lift the title by 0.06% are the current leaders – Liverpool.

The computer currently has them level on points, come the end of the season, with Manchester City and Arsenal – all tied on 76 for the year, but Chelsea are at this stage only two points below them.

The three sides currently predicted for the drop are Bournemouth on 37, Swansea City on 36 and Sunderland on 31.

With eleven games gone this year it doesn’t appear to be a fairytale repeat given Leicester City’s entirely unexpected success last season, and other sides like Chelsea hugely falling away based on their own expectations – but plenty will be looking at West Ham and their lowly position in the real and predicted table given ongoing issues at the London Stadium following their move.

With last season itself providing a variety of surprises for fans of top flight teams around the country, at least this year the final table and the predicted table, do seem to take on a more expected design – with fewer surprises.

The one thing that can’t be denied at this stage is a number of clubs will now be disappointed with where they find themselves even though the halfway point hasn’t yet been reached, but others will be happier with a steady or better start – but obviously there’s a long way to go yet, and some of the trailing pack will be hoping to draw themselves closer to the top four spots, and clearly those nearer the bottom will have hopes of eeking more to safe midtable if nothing else.

The methodology can be found on the website via the above link.
