A newly published research data has shown who could statistically be the top four come end of the Premier League's 2020-21 season.

Premier League clubs are locking horns in the coming couple of weeks in order to gain European spots for the next season.

Leicester City, West Ham and Liverpool are fighting it off for the fourth place after Chelsea almost booked their third spot following their win over Manchester City.

Leicester and West Ham lost to Newcastle United and Everton respectively whereas Liverpool's hopes of Champions League qualification gathered pace with their win against Southampton.

However, as per statistical organisation FiveThirtyEight, Leicester City will finish in fourth place, one point ahead of Liverpool, with West Ham predicted to finish in sixth place.

Here are their rankings with their SPI (Season performance index):

Manchester City - 93.2

Manchester United - 88.3

Chelsea - 89.8

Leicester City - 78.4

Liverpool - 88.1

West Ham - 74.3

Tottenham - 76.6

Everton - 73.5

Arsenal - 83.1

Leeds United - 72.9

If you go to see, weirdly enough, Arsenal have a season performance index of 83.1 but the still do not command a better position in the Premier League table as their results have not complemented their performances on the field.
