Premier League relegation battle: Supercomputer predicts the three teams who will go down

Look away now Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff City fans… the future looks bleak, according to the latest Premier League predictions.

A supercomputer has predicted how the final table will look come the final day of the season and doesn’t make for pretty reading.

A Football Web Pages prophesy has had a go at calculating each team’s potential results from their remaining fixtures – and there will be last day nerves.

If their forecast is anything to go by, Cardiff , Burnley and Southampton will fight to the death for the final survival spot on May 12.

Fulham , if the computer is on the money, will be relegated before the end of April.

Cardiff City’s great win at Southampton could prove to be a false dawn

But if Whites fans and supporters of the Bluebirds are down about that grizzly prediction, Huddersfield fans should read on through their fingers.

They say the Terriers will collect just one more point this season – a tame 0-0 draw with Bournemouth in March.

That means they will become the second worst Premier League team in history behind Derby County, who collected just 11 points in season 2007-08.

If what they’re saying is right, Southampton will avoid the drop into the Championship by being the only struggler to win on the final day.

Here’s how the table is predicted to finish

They’re down to beat Huddersfield 1-0 at St Mary’s – and survive because Cardiff are defeated 2-0 at Manchester United .

Sean Dyche’s Burnley will be relieved to hear that result come through at Old Trafford.

Because the stats guys at FootballWebPages have them going down 2-1 at home to Arsenal .

Newcastle will be safe only in the final few games as Fulham claw back some respectability by beating to Toon Army in possibly Rafa Benitez’s last game in charge of the club.

Fulham will be returning to the Championship too, the supercomputer suggests

Huddersfield ‘will only collect one more point’

If the predictor is a good guide, Brighton will survive by an impressive 13 points.

Crystal Palace end in 14th – eight points ahead of the drop-zone.

The supercomputer, meanwhile, doesn’t seem to be impressed by Manchester City ripping Chelsea to sheds on Sunday.

It says Liverpool will end the season with 101 points – seven points ahead of last season’s champions.
