With Manchester City all-but set to be crowned Premier League champions this season, attention has shifted to the battle for the top four.
The Citizens City are currently topping the standings with 71 points, a massive 14 above their closest challengers, Man United, who sit second.
Both teams look set to seal the top two positions, leaving a string of clubs competing for the two other Champions League slots.
Despite sitting in third and a point behind United, a supercomputer has tipped Leicester City to once again miss out on a place in the top four.
The Foxes have a five-point cushion over fourth-placed Chelsea who are enjoying a stellar campaign under Thomas Tuchel.
Be that as it is, the supercomputer predicted the final EPL table does not see the King Power Stadium side qualifying for the European elite competition.
Instead, the Blues and Liverpool have been backed to join Man United and City in the top four standings.
Despite securing a 2-0 win over Aston Villa to climb to sixth, Tottenham Hotspur have been given no chance to get a European football slot having been tipped to finish eighth behind rivals Arsenal, West Ham, and Leicester.
In the relegation battle, Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United have all been backed to drop to the Championship, with Newcastle surviving by a whisker.
The Magpies are in danger of dropping after a disappointing run of results under Steve Bruce in recent weeks.
The St. James Park club is sitting just two points above safety and is in danger of losing the spot to Fulham should they fail to step up in the remaining matches.
