Supercomputer predicts final league table after Everton points deduction as Man City learn fate

Pep Guardiola has overseen an incredible period of Premier League dominance at City, with five of the last six titles in the trophy cabinet at the Etihad. The Catalan reached the pinnacle of European football last season, adding the FA Cup and Champions League for a historic treble.

No team in the Premier League era has won four consecutive titles but the supercomputer from Bettingexpert has predicted City to do exactly that. Guardiola&aposs side have been backed to finish on around 84 points, which would put them four points clear of second-placed Arsenal.

City welcome Liverpool to the Etihad next Sunday in what will be a top-two clash, but Jurgen Klopp&aposs side are expected to drop down a position come the end of the season. Newcastle are in a tough spot at the moment but have been backed to claim fourth spot, while fifth-placed Aston Villa could still make the Champions League due to a rule change that will likely give English teams an extra spot.

The gap between City and their fierce rivals Manchester United was evident in last month&aposs dominant 3-0 win at Old Trafford, and Erik ten Hag&aposs side are not expected to improve between now and May. They have been tipped to finish eighth, which would be their worst finish since 1989/1990.
