Super Computer makes Leeds United and Everton relegation predictions in Premier League

Leeds United currently stand a 20% chance of being relegated from the Premier League this season after the 1-0 loss against Arsenal, according to FiveThirtyEight.

The data experts have instead backed the Whites to finish 13th ahead of the likes of Everton, Wolves and Leicester, who all currently have more chance of relegation.

Jesse Marsch next takes his squad to Leicester on Thursday 20th October, with three points desperately needed to kickstart the season once again.

Nottingham Forest look to be the first team doomed based on these predictions as Steve Cooper’s struggles continue despite all of that money spent.

Bournemouth and Southampton are currently the other two backed to go down, despite the Cherries currently being on a cracking unbeaten run in the Premier League.

Leeds need to start picking up wins after going six without one, or these odds could shift dramatically in the next couple of weeks at Elland Road.

Small.

The performance against Arsenal was certainly not one from a side that will be battling relegation this season.

Although, if Leeds don’t turn domination in games into wins and points on the board, fears will start to rise very quickly in the Premier League yet again.

You couldn’t be mad at the Whites on Sunday afternoon, as they absolutely battered the table-topping Gunners, and should have scored three, if not more.

That doesn’t get you any points though, and although it has given us confidence, it makes these games against Leicester and then Fulham massive in the coming days.

Six points and we forget all about even the possibility of relegation for now, but two losses and the exact opposite happens in West Yorkshire.

Confidence has to be taken from Sunday, and if they can repeat that on Thursday and get that first away win of the season against the struggling Foxes.

Let’s start moving on up, rather than looking over our shoulders.
