Arsenal have been given just a 14 per cent chance of winning the Premier League this season – with Manchester City the overwhelming favourites to reclaim their title.
That is according to the latest predictions from the brainiacs at FiveThirtyEight, whose supercomputer has predicted where every club will finish this season. Despite us being just 12 games into the season and with a further 26 match days to go, the numbers have been crunched to give us a final picture already.
And it does not make good reading for Arsenal, who might already be concerned by their recent form following a draw to Southampton and a loss to PSV Eindhoven in the Europa League. That is because, despite leading City by two points in the table, their time at the top will come to an end soon.

According to FiveThirtyEight's supercomputer, the Gunners have just a 14 per cent chance of winning their first Premier League title since 2003. However, it is not all doom and gloom – with Arsenal predicted to finish second in the league.
That would be their best finish in the league since 2016 – coincidentally the last time that they finished in the top four at all. Under Mikel Arteta, Arsenal have ended up eighth – twice in a row.
But some smart business in the transfer window has given them the team that the Spaniard has always wanted and they look a formidable outfit, losing only to Manchester United in the league.
However, that is not enough to stave off the might of City – who have been given a whopping 71 per cent chance of winning the Premier League for the fifth time in six years. At the other end of the table, it is not pretty reading for Wolves.
The Molineux outfit, who were recently stuffed 4-0 at home by Leicester, have been made relegation favourites along with Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest. Leeds United and Southampton survive by the skin of their teeth.
Liverpool and Chelsea are set to make up the rest of the top four, leaving United and Tottenham in fifth and sixth respectively. It is a good year for Brighton, who finish eighth while Newcastle are knocking on the door – landing seventh in the Premier League.
