Predicted Premier League finish forecasts spectacular shift in survival scrap for Leeds United, Newcastle United, Everton and Burnley
Unbeaten runs for Burnley and Newcastle United — coupled with losing streaks for Leeds United, Everton and Brentford — have thrown the Premier League fight for survival up in the air.
The Clarets’ 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, adding to victories over Brighton and Hove Albion and Spurs, completely changed the complexion of the table at the bottom end.
Sean Dyche’s side are now a single point adrift of Frank Lampard’s 17th place Toffees, who have lost five of their last six league games, and a couple of points shy of the now managerless Whites, who have lost four on the bounce while conceding 17 goals.
The Magpies, meanwhile, haven’t lost in six games under Eddie Howe, collecting 14 points during that spell, which has lifted them out of trouble in the top flight.
Just a few weeks ago, the race for survival had looked all-but done and dusted. However, the make-up of the Premier League table at the beginning of March means there might be an almighty battle for survival in store.
As the season draws to a close, it is set to be a fascinating battle at the bottom and here, using data provided by FiveThirtyEight, this is how the ‘supercomputer’ is predicting what the Premier League table will look like when the season draws to a close on Sunday, May 22nd, 2022.
