Predicting the Final Premier League Table of The Season With 7 Games Remaining

final countdown Predicting the Final Premier League Table of The Season With 7 Games Remaining

After spending some time going through the remaining fixture list, I have begun the process of projecting the final standings for the 2011-12 season of the Premier League. Now, obviously, with any type of projections, injuries and dips in form are difficult to foresee.  However, based on these projections, there are a few things that stick out:

  • The large point difference between the top two clubs is largely due to the fact that Manchester United finishes the season playing the likes of QPR, Wigan, and Aston Villa while Manchester City has to play at Arsenal, at a surprisingly tough Norwich, and at Newcastle.
  • Everton’s recent run of positive form could be coming to an end with a trying stretch of matches as they are projected to only gain four more points.
  • Sadly, the projections say that fans of the Blackburn, Wolves and Wigan will be cheering for their clubs in the Championship next season.

What do you think? Are these projections accurate or did I underestimate any club?
