Tottenham will win their first-ever Premier League title this season, according to data a supercomputer had compiled to predict the final table. Jose Mourinho’s men are set to beat Leicester to the crown by just one goal when the two end up level on 86 points.
Spurs have started the campaign well but Jose Mourinho has so far played down a title challenge from his side.
Chelsea are set to finish third with Aston Villa fourth, according to the predicted table.
That means it is awful news for current Premier League champions Liverpool who are forecast to end up in eighth below Manchester City in seventh.
Southampton and West Ham are predicted to finish in fifth and sixth and take the Europa League places.
It makes even worse reading for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mikel Arteta respectively.

Manchester United are set to finish in 10th with Arsenal in 11th and both over 30 points behind eventual champions Spurs.
These are of course early projections but Tottenham fans will be delighted that it looks like they have a genuine chance of silverware with Mourinho in the dugout.
Unfortunately, it is bad news for Burnley, West Brom and Sheffield United as they are set to be the three teams relegated to the Championship.
Everton’s promising start sees them in ninth with Wolves down in 13th just above Leeds.

Crystal Palace, Brighton, Newcastle and Fulham all survive another season in the Premier League.
Paul Merson believes Tottenham have a real chance of winning the title this season.
He told Sky Sports: “Can Spurs go on and win the title? It’s not impossible and that’s because they’ve got a serial winner as a manager.
“They’ve got a chance because Mourinho is in charge and has won it before. He knows what it takes to get over the line.
“Can the players keep producing week in, week out? Only time will tell, but having Mourinho at the club gives them an advantage.

“Mauricio Pochettino was a good manager, don’t get me wrong. However, they’ve now got more chance of winning the title because of Mourinho.
“He knows what you have to do week in, week out and then all over again.
“You have to be there or thereabouts all the time. You cannot be giving teams six, seven or eight-point head starts, and they are right in the mix at the moment.
“A word of caution, though. Everyone’s talking about the title and because it is November, people think we’re nearly halfway through the season.
“Usually we’d have played about 15 games by now and that’s a massive difference, but we’ve only played seven or eight games.”
