Where Man Utd & Man City are now predicted to finish in the Premier League - with a shock for Liverpool

Here is where Manchester United and Manchester City are predicted to finish this season according to a new data analysis.

Manchester United look to be turning their season around after an impressive victory over league leaders Arsenal at the weekend.

The Red Devils made it four wins in a row at Old Trafford and now sit fifth in the Premier League table after a poor start to the campaign.

Erik ten Hag began his tenure at Old Trafford with a defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion, before a humiliating 4-0 loss against Brentford the following week.

However, the likes of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have finally discovered some form, while Lisandro Martinez and their other new signings look to be settling into their new life in England.

Ahead of United’s upcoming league match against Crystal Palace, data experts have crunched the numbers and used their Forecasts and Soccer Power Index (SPI) ratings to predict how the final Premier League table will look come next May.

We take a look at their predicted final finishing positions, including where United and rivals Manchester City could feature, and how many points each side is expected to earn.
