A supercomputer has predicted that Manchester City will undertake a successful defence of their Premier League title next season.

Pep Guardiola's side beat their neighbourhood rivals Manchester United by 12 points to reclaim the league title they lost to Liverpool in the 2018-2019 season. The Spaniard has been looking to boost his squad ahead of the new campaign, and has been looking at bringing in Jack Grealish and Harry Kane.

And a supercomputer has backed City to win a second back-to-back title under Guardiola, with Chelsea finishing second, and rivals United ending up fourth.

A spokesperson said (via SportBible): "Manchester City are hard to look past as title winners once again, so it's no surprise that our supercomputer has them top of the pile. Chelsea, after last season's drastic improvement and Champions League success, are predicted to run City closest, hile Liverpool and Manchester United make up the top four. At the other end of the table, the newly-promoted trio of Norwich, Watford and Brentford are expected to find the step up too difficult."

The 2021-22 Premier League table according to the Supercomputer:

1. Manchester City

2. Chelsea

3. Liverpool

4. Manchester United

5. Tottenham Hotspur

6. Leicester City

7. Arsenal

8. Everton

9. Leeds United

10. West Ham

11. Aston Villa

12. Brighton

13. Wolves

14. Southampton

15. Newcastle United

16. Burnley

17. Crystal Palace

18. Brentford

19. Watford

20. Norwich City
