New predicted Premier League table forecasts finishes for Aston Villa, Tottenham, Chelsea, West Ham and rivals

An updated prediction for the final standings of the ultra-competitive 2023/24 Premier League.

The Premier League is hotting up with the finale fast approaching for one of the most competitive and thrilling campaigns in recent memory.

Arsenal have taken the lead at the summit of the table after Liverpool drew against bitter rivals Manchester United but merely one point separates the top three after 31 matches played. There are no more games in hand - just a straight race for the title bound to have plenty more bumps in the road.

The battle for the top four is fierce, too, with no guarantees yet assured for fifth place in qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League. Tottenham Hotspur have the goal-difference and game-in-hand advantages as it stands but Aston Villa, also on 60 points, cannot be overlooked.

Just two points detach Manchester United, West Ham United and Newcastle United to round off the top seven but Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion will be eager to bounce back. Wolverhampton Wanderers, AFC Bournemouth and Fulham are also on the fringes but all face uphill battles.

Down to the base of the standings and never say never but Sheffield United and Burnley look destined to be relegated straight back down to the Sky Bet Championship. The final spot in the drop zone is far from decided, though, with Luton Town, Nottingham Forest and Everton all fighting for their top-tier lives.

With so much uncertainty and half-a-dozen or more fixtures still to be played, it’s difficult to predict exactly how the Premier League standings will conclude. Opta Analyst has given its best shot, however, providing the likelihoods for every team’s final position. From last to first, here’s a full breakdown.
