Pep Guardiola's side are currently 10th on the league table, five points adrift of defending champions, Liverpool. But FiveThirtyEight report City are best-placed to win the Premier League this season.
At the start of the season, a report by Unikrn claimed that City and Liverpool would finish first and second respectively in the upcoming Premier League campaign. Manchester United, who came third in the league last season, were predicted to finish in the same position next season. Chelsea were expected to capture the final Champions League spot, while Spurs were predicted to finish fifth and secure Europa League football.
And while the new report by FiveThirtyEight claims City will win the title with Jurgen Klopp's men finishing second, there have been a number of changes to league positions for other clubs.
The Red Devils have only a 32 percent chance of finishing in the top four, while the Gunners are even less likely to secure Champions League football at a 17 percent chance. West Brom, Fulham, and Sheffield United are all predicted to be relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season.
20/21 predicted table:
1. Manchester City (Premier League champions)
2. Liverpool (Champions League qualification)
3. Chelsea (Champions League qualification)
4. Tottenham (Champions League qualification)
5. Leicester (Europa League qualification)
