According to a Supercomputer’s prediction, Manchester City will win their third consecutive Premier League title at the end of the 2019/2020 season.
According to the latest SportNation.Bet Supercomputer following the release of the fixtures for this season, Pep Guardiola’s men will become only the second team to win three Premier Leagues in a row.
The first team to do this was Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United side in 1999, 2000 and 2001.
Liverpool will also have to settle for second place for a second year in a row.
The table is as shown below:
1. Manchester City
3. Tottenham Hotspur
5. Manchester United
7. Wolverhampton Wanderers
8. Newcastle United
10. Leicester City
11. West Ham United
14. Crystal Palace
16. Aston Villa
17. Brighton & Hove Albion
19. Norwich City
20. Sheffield United
In terms of the fixtures, City have a much easier run-in.
Their final six games are against sides who finished in the bottom half last season, whereas Liverpool face Chelsea at Anfield as well as a tricky trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.
Last seasons top two will face-off at Anfield on November 9 while the reverse and potentially title deciding fixture at the Etihad is scheduled for April 4.
Manchester United and Arsenal are also predicted to miss out on the top four again, with Tottenham and Chelsea taking the final two Champions League spots.
United’s opening game of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first full campaign is against Chelsea at Old Trafford on August 11.

Question marks still surround who Chelsea’s manager will be in August as Maurizio Sarri seems destined to take over Juventus.
At the bottom of the table, Aston Villa are earmarked as the only newly promoted side to survive with Norwich City and Sheffield United placed 19th and 20th respectively, with Burnley in the final relegation spot.
Whatever the results, the next Premier League campaign is shaping up to be a good one.
