FiveThirtyEight have published their predictions, based on probabilities, on how they see the Premier League table looking come the end of the season and the thing that is mostly of interest to Arsenal fans is the question, will the Gunners be champions?
Earlier this week we reported FiveThirtyEight have Arsenal down as the favourites to win the Europa League this season, which you can read here.
The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League since 2003/04, 19 years ago now… Could that change this season, according to FiveThirtyEight?
FiveThirtyEight have predicted that Arsenal will be crowned champions come the end of the season, by beating Manchester City to the title by a single point.
As shown in the table above, Arsenal’s 83 points will be enough to win the Premier League, making that point count the lowest to win the title since Leicester’s 81 point winning season in 2015/2016.
The rest of top 4 consists of Manchester City in the second, Manchester United in third and Tottenham Hotspur in fourth. Unfortunately for Everton, Bournemouth and Southampton, their Premier League dream is over, since they are predicted to be unable to escape relegation to the Championship.
Arsenal currently sit top of the Premier League table by two points, with a game in hand on Manchester City and 15 games remaining.
I’m sure all all Arsenal fans will hope this prediction becomes a reality come May.
