To say Arsenal have had an underwhelming season so far would be an understatement.
The Gunners started the campaign with three consecutive defeats and we’ve lost three of our last four games as well. Yes, we went on a 10-game unbeaten run in all competitions in between, but that’s nothing to shout about.
Arsenal are currently seventh in the league table after 15 games, two points behind Tottenham and four behind fourth-placed West Ham United. So, where will the Gunners finish in the table at the end of this season?
Supercomputer prediction: Where will Arsenal finish in the PL this season?
The Shields Gazette have used the help of a supercomputer to predict where Arsenal will finish in the Premier League once all 38 games are played. It’s safe to say, most Gooners will not like it.
The calculations made by the supercomputer predict that Mikel Arteta’s men will finish sixth in the Premier League table. It is claimed that we’ll only be able to pick up 57 points and we’ll end the campaign with a -1 goal difference.
That would make this a disastrous season, especially considering that we finished last term with 61 points. We missed out on Europe altogether last term and although the prediction this time is that we’ll qualify for the Europa League, it’s simply not good enough.
Where will the other sides finish?
The Premier League this season is more competitive than it has ever been, but not a lot is set to change at the top of the table, if the supercomputer is to be believed.
It has been claimed that Manchester City will win the title yet again, finishing two points ahead of Liverpool and seven ahead of Chelsea. West Ham are predicted to finish fourth with 63 points, six ahead of Arsenal.
Manchester United take up fifth and Spurs are predicted to finish below us in seventh. The supercomputer has further revealed that the three clubs that will go down are Burnley, Newcastle United and Norwich City.
Arsenal’s finish is all that matters as far as we’re concerned and sixth will make this season a failure. Arteta may well lose his job as well, which would be a shame, but finishing 31 points off the top of the table in a campaign where we don’t have European football to worry about shows that we’re not heading in the right direction.
