In this article, we'll be analyzing some of these predictions. Check it out below:

It gives the 'Cityzens' a massive 50% winning chance.

Our verdict

Though Manchester City started the season with a defeat, they've since found their feet back and are now major contenders for the title.

Their impressive performance against Liverpool, despite not having a main striker, is an indication that Pep Guardiola's side is still a force to reckon with this season.

As such, agrees with the supercomputer on this rating.

Liverpool- 26%

The supercomputer gives Jurgen Klopp's men a 26% chance of emerging as winners of the 2021-22 English Premier League campaign.

Our verdict

Jurgen Klopp's men have been in an electric form so far. The recent rise in the form of their talisman Mo Salah has also contributed to the Reds' recent run of excellent form.

Jurgen Klopp's side has all the necessary qualities and zeal to emerge as winners of this year's campaign.

As such, disagrees with the supercomputer on this rating. We believe the Reds have more than a 26% of emerging as winners of the league.

Chelsea Football Club

Though Chelsea is currently league leader, the supercomputer doesn't seem to rate their chances of winning the league highly.

It gives them a meager 18% winning chance.

Our verdict

Over the past few weeks, we've seen a dip of form in some of the club's star players such as Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, and Romelu Lukaku.

This dip in performances might affect the team's chances of winning the league. As such, we agree with the supercomputer on this one.

Man United- 5%

Despite their amazing firepower, the Red Devils' have their winning chances pegged at 5%.

Our verdict

The recent performances by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men don't make them look like serious title contenders.

Unless they get more serious after the international break, they'll have to settle with just a top 4 finish.

With that being said, shares the same opinion with the Supercomputer on Manchester United's rating.

Here's an illustration of the probabilities below:

As usual, it's worthy to remind you that these predictions don't determine who will win the league.

It's just like any other forecast made based on certain factors, as such, it shouldn't be used for gambling purposes.
