Opta has generated the Premier League table, and if Opta is right, we’re in for a thrilling rest of the season. The Premier League table that Opta have created couldn’t be any closer at the top of the league, with both Manchester clubs, Newcastle United and Arsenal all battling it out at the top.
Opta have researched the current Premier League season down to a tee to formalise a complete Premier League table, predicting who’ll win the league, get the top four and who’ll be relegated.
Manchester City will travel to the Emirates on Wednesday to battle in one of the most anticipated games so far this season. Pep Guardiola’s side is only just three points shy of the Gunners and the top of the pile is looking tighter than ever.

Who’ll get relegated:
Southampton: Despite having a squad full of talent, Southampton have been under par this season and because of this reason, Opta have voted them as a team who’ll be relegated. Nathan Jones has already had shouts of being sacked with Jesse Marsh taking over.
Bournemouth: The next team voted by Opta to be relegated is the Cherries. Bournemouth had some good business in the January transfer window and looks miles better after the 9-0 loss at Anfield. Despite this Opta has voted Bournemouth as the second team to be relegated.
Everton: Opta has also voted for two back-to-back relegations for Sean Dyche. Despite Everton’s great display against Arsenal, Opta doesn’t think the Toffees will be able to stay up this season.
Premier League Champions:
Arsenal has been the team voted by Opta to win the Premier League this season! But it isn’t by many points at all… Both Arsenal and Manchester City have been given a virtually identical possibility of winning the Premier League, but Arsenal fractionally edges the Manchester side.
Pep’s side misses out on a Premier League by a 0.01% chance! Arsenal has a 48.90% chance of winning the Premier League and Manchester City has a 48.89% chance of winning it.
The only two other teams that have the opportunity of causing upset are Manchester United (1.2%) and Newcastle United (0.1%).
Because Arsenal has failed to win two Premier League games of the bounce, this has opened the Premier League up considerably and Opta now predicts the league will be neck and neck with Manchester City and Arsenal. Experts are willing to say that the Arsenal Vs. Manchester City fixture on Wednesday will be one of the biggest fixtures Arsenal have faced since the 2005-2006 season (Arsenals 2-1 loss to Barcelona in the Champions League final.)
