A supercomputer has predicted the final Premier League standings for the 2021-22 season, and Manchester City are set to retain their Premier League crown.

According to the final standings, only a point separates the top three, as Liverpool finish second, level on points with City but miss out on the top spot due to goal difference. Chelsea finish third on 81 points, while Manchester United take the fourth spot with an underwhelming 64 points - 18 adrift of the top spot.

The table put together by fivethirtyeight.com sees West Ham finish fifth, one spot higher than where they finished last season. David Moyes' side stormed to a third consecutive Premier League victory over the weekend and look comfortable on the table right now.

Arsenal finish sixth which is a huge improvement from how their season began, while their north London rivals, Tottenham, finish eighth following their managerial woes.

At the other end of the table, Newcastle's new owners fail to inspire the team to stay up in the league and could be facing Championship football next season. Norwich and Watford also face a drop down, with Burnley just managing to stay up.
