  • Everton’s chances of surviving the Premier League have been calculated by a Supercomputer
  • The Toffees were deducted 10 points after being found guilty of breaching Premier League financial rules
  • They sit 19th on the log after the sanction, with only goal difference keeping them off the bottom

A supercomputer has attempted to predict where Everton will finish in the league after points deduction on Friday, November 17.

The Merseyside club were dealt a blow as they were deducted 10 points for breaching the Premier League’s financial rules, a setback which sent them from 14th to 19th in the Premier League table.

For a team that was already struggling in the Premier League, a point deduction will surely increase The Toffees’ chances of dropping to the Championship.

Supercomputer predicts Everton’s final position

The last Premier League club to be deducted points was Portsmouth in 2009, and they ended up finishing bottom of the table.

But Everton fans can breathe a sigh of relief as a supercomputer has tipped The Toffees to have a better season than Pompey.

BETSiE supercomputer tipped Everton to finish in 17th place, narrowly avoiding the drop zone. If the prediction is anything to go by, Sean Dyche’s team will beat the drop zone by a staggering seven points.

Their survival will come at the expense of Luton Town, who the Supercomputer has predicted will go back to the Championship.

Here is the full prediction:

1.) Manchester City

2.) Arsenal

3.) Liverpool

4.) Newcastle

5.) Aston Villa

6.) Tottenham

7.) Chelsea

8.) Manchester United

9.) Brighton & Hove Albion

10.) Brentford

11.) West Ham United

12.) Wolverhampton Wanderers

13.) Crystal Palace

14.) Nottingham Forest

15.) Fulham

16.) Bournemouth

17.) Everton

18.) Burnley

19.) Luton Town

20.) Sheffield United

Man City tipped to win again

Manchester City have been tipped to clinch the Premier League title for a record fourth time in a row, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle rounding off the top four.

According to the supercomputer, Manchester United will end the season in a lowly eighth place, below a resurgent Chelsea who have been tipped for a seventh place finish.

History of points deduction

Sports Brief also reported on the first Premier League club to get slapped with a points deduction.

Middlesbrough became the first team to be slapped with a point-deduction sanction in 1997.

Boro failed to report for a game against Blackburn Rovers in December 1996 as manager Bryan Robson claimed he was devoid of more than 23 players who were reportedly ill.
