On the back of a 13 match winning streak, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side looked to be running away with the Premier League title until last week’s 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. The loss at the hands of their London rivals once more blew the title race wide open with as many as four teams in the mix for this year’s Premiership title.
That said though, Chelsea still remain the firm favourites for the title and if the recent predictions by a supercomputer are anything to go by, Chelsea look set to land their fifth Premier League title come May 2017.
A supercomputer reportedly by the name of SAM or Sports Analytics Machine recently predicted Chelsea would win the Premier League title by a cosy cushion of seven points. The computer was built by Ian McHale, a professor of sports analytics at Salford University along with his colleague Dr Tarak Kharrat.
The computer while being a forbearer of good news for the likes of Chelsea and Spurs fans (second), also has some rather grim predictions for fans of Arsenal and Manchester United with the two clubs predicted to finish fifth and sixth respectively according to the super computer.
