Not many are predicting any form of success for Chelsea this season.
SUPERCOMPUTER BETSiE has backed Pep Guardiola’s side to retain the Premier League title, and Chelsea didn’t get a favourable ranking.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle have been predicted to take the second, third and fourth positions respectively.
While Ange Postecoglou’s high-flying Tottenham have been backed to finish fifth, despite their impressive start to the season.
Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United have been tipped to finish seventh position, with Aston Villa backed to finish ahead of the Red Devils on the sixth position.
Brighton and Chelsea are predicted to come eight and ninth position respectively.
Making up the mid-table positions are West Ham in 10th, Brentford 11th, Crystal Palace 12th and Nottingham Forest 13th.
It could be a narrow escape for currently winless Bournemouth in 17th, with Fulham 16th, Everton 15th and Wolves 14th.
BETSiE predicts Burnley for the 18th position with Everton 19th and Sheffield United at the bottom.
It’s now left for Chelsea to prove to doubters that they can turn their season around.
