Super Computer makes new Leeds United relegation prediction after Premier League loss v Chelsea
Leeds United are the firm favourites to be relegated from the Premier League after their latest defeat, according to a Super Computer.
Leeds lost 3-0 to Chelsea at Elland Road on Wednesday night (11 May) while Everton managed to earn a point away at Watford.
FiveThirtyEight have crunched the numbers and now say that Leeds have a 65 per cent chance of being relegated. Burnley have a 29 per cent chance of going down as they’re above 18th-placed Leeds on goal difference and have one extra game to play.
Everton look close to safety as they have just a six per cent chance of going down, according to this Super Computer.
Leeds have two matches left in the Premier League before going into the Championship.
That’s how it feels, in all honesty.
Some of you glass-half-full fans will no doubt disagree with us on that but if you look at the fact Burnley and Everton are in better form, Burnley have that extra game, Leeds’ goal difference is ridiculously bad and Elland Road’s injury and suspension list is growing, you have to agree with us.
Everything is going wrong for Leeds United.
Even if we win our last two games, there’s a chance we’ll still get relegated.
However, winning those games is easier said than done because Brighton and Brentford have both had good seasons compared to their expectations and are also in good form.
Marsch has managed to get results against some of the teams who you’d say are nearer to us in the league but it’ll be a mammoth task for him to win these matches and avoid relegation.
We really do hope he can pull it off but it looks as though we could be swapping away days at Manchester City and Liverpool for trips to Blackpool and Rotherham.
