ARSENAL have been tipped to fall off top spot in the Premier League… while Wolves could get RELEGATED.
That’s according to a supercomputer tasked with using data and betting market analysis to predict how the season will play out.
Boffins and brainiacs over at MyBettingSites have been crunching the numbers to predict how the final table will look come May.
And after Arsenal fell to a 1-1 draw at Southampton on Sunday afternoon, the algorithm reckons that Mikel Arteta and Co will soon surrender top spot to perennial champions Manchester City.
They do still believe that the Gunners will come second, however, in what would remain an extremely successful season given that they have not finished in the top four since 2016.
Amazingly, our supercomputer reckons that Liverpool will climb all the way back up to third – despite their dodgy start to the season.
The Reds’ 1-0 defeat at lowly Nottingham Forest at the weekend saw Jurgen Klopp’s side fall to eighth – seven points behind third spot.
Chelsea are then tipped to grab the final Champions League place – with Tottenham and Manchester United missing out and coming fifth and sixth respectively.
Following their 2-1 win at Spurs on Sunday, Newcastle climbed into the top four.
But the Toon are backed to fall to seventh, clinching a Europa Conference League berth in the process.

Brighton, West Ham and Crystal Palace are then expected to round off the top ten.
Down at the bottom of the table, things are set to heat up.
Forest’s aforementioned win over Liverpool and Leicester’s trouncing of Wolves brought the early season strugglers back into the mix.
Despite their amazing triumph Forest are still backed to come rock bottom of the league.
Bournemouth are currently 14th in the table – but the algorithm reckons they’ll slip to 19th by the end of the campaign.
Managerless Wolves could then come 18th, despite having spent around Â£120m in the summer.
Pressure is mounting on Leeds boss Jesse Marsch, with the Whites now eight without a win.
But the supercomputer believes that they will survive by the skin of their teeth, coming 17th.
Southampton are 16th in their table with Leicester rising to 15th – and Frank Lampard’s Everton one spot ahead.
They tip Brentford for 13th and managerless Aston Villa 12th.
And Marco Silva’s high-flying Fulham are backed to come top of the bottom half in 11th.
