A new season, a new special computer crunching the numbers to determine the final Premier League positions for 2017/18.

Here are the updated Premier League predictions for the season of 2017/18 after all sides have played at least 27 games of the campaign.

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

Well you don’t have to guess.

With most playing 28 games in the Premier League season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are the current leaders – Manchester City. Their early season form has seen them leap to top spot and they haven’t wavered since.

The computer currently has them remaining in top spot, ahead of Manchester United by 18 points, and Liverpool by 21 points.

Chelsea take fourth place at the moment with 78 points, two points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are in sixth place way back on 63 points.

At the other other end of the table, the three sides currently predicted for the drop are Crystal Palace, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion – Swansea and Southampton avoid the drop with a single point each.

The one thing that can’t be ignored though is there is a hell of a lot of football still to be played even though we find ourselves almost in March and sides that have started well may fade away and others could find form as the months tick by, but this is a bit of fun – I wouldn’t bet your house on it!

The predictions are a reflection on the season so far, and absolutely nothing more, and in most cases the next fixture day could cause wholescale changes to the table.

For Southampton specifically, as the latest month ticks by they are expected to suffer no change in form and no uplift in scoring issues so far this season. Compared to last month’s predictions they do however move up a place in the table to 16th spot but 35 points continues to be all they will win in the campaign of 2017/18.

Despite having a better goal difference than the sides below them, a single point is their saviour this season.
