A supercomputer has forecast that Arsenal will struggle in the second half of the Premier League season, while Manchester City will win the league for the third time in a row.
Arsenal presently leads the table by 5 points over Manchester City, having only lost once before the mid-season World Cup break.
Since then, star striker Gabriel Jesus has sustained an injury that will keep him out for a while. This is a big blow for Mikel Arteta, as their only back-up striker is Eddie Nketiah.
Despite being 5 points behind Arsenal, City have enough talent and experience in their squad to deal with the pressure and easily come back in the second half to take the lead.
They have been in this situation twice in recent years, with Liverpool leading the table at Christmas but Guardiola’s team winning the league.
A new supercomputer predicts that Guardiola’s squad will win the championship in May. The season resumes on Boxing Day, with most teams having 24 games left before the end of the season.
It forecasts a disappointing second half of the season for Mikel Arteta’s men who are predicted to finish 2nd. And surprisingly, the computer has predicted that Liverpool who have been quite terrible this season will end up finishing 3rd.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently sixth, eight points behind Newcastle. The Magpies are however predicted to finish fifth despite Eddie Howe’s hopes to finish top 4.
Meanwhile, Wolves, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest are expected to be relegated.
