Predicted Premier League table sees drastic change after just one game: Where Aston Villa, Wolves, Leicester, Man United & Everton sit

Just how much can things change after one week? We take a look.

It was a rough opening Premier League day for the two West Midlands sides.

Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers were both on the end of disappointing defeats, Villa losing 2-0 to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium whilst Wolves lost 2-1 to Leeds United.

It came as a stark reminder to the claret and blue that nothing is a given in this league and the season ahead may not be as positive as once thought.

Wolves on the other hand ultimately lost out largely because of a reason they were already well aware of before a ball was kicked - their squad depth is simply not there.

Elsewhere and we saw some real shock scorelines across the division in match day one. Fulham holding Liverpool to a 2-2 draw on Saturday lunch-time could prove pivotal in the long run for both teams and Brighton’s win at Old Trafford on Sunday may well be the result of the weekend.

It’s already had people scrambling to change their pre-season predictions, including that of the data experts.

FiveThirtyEight’s supercomputer has already seen a massive shake-up after one game with the Seagulls in particular taking a huge leap up the league.

Here’s how they are now predicting the Premier League table to look come May 2023.
