Here's why Chelsea are going to win the Premier League this year*

*According to this very scientific-looking projected final table.

CHELSEA ARE GOING to win this year’s Premier League, while Manchester United will only manage third place in David Moyes’ first season, if a projected table is to be believed.

The table was compiled by Bloomberg Sport, an analytics company, who have used data from previous seasons to work out where each team will finish.

In addition to the data, they’ve also considered the importance of big signings and newly installed managers.

The study also claims that Tottenham’s chances of finishing in the top four will increase by 13% if they manage to hold onto Gareth Bale, while also suggesting teams will need 88.9 points to win the league and 36.4 points to avoid getting relegated.
