Super Computer predicts Leeds United final Premier League position
Leeds United beat Crystal Palace by a 1-0 scoreline on Tuesday and now find themselves closer to the top half than the dreaded relegation zone.
Raphinha’s late penalty gave the Whites only their third win of the season and they now find themselves only four points away from Brighton and Leicester who sit in 9th and 10th respectively.
At the other end of the table, Burnley with 10 points to their name are in 18th place – five behind Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Despite being closer to the top half, Leeds are expected to finish in the same position they are currently.
American polling website FiveThirtyEight crunched the numbers and predict that Leeds will end up with 44 points.
However, that is only four points away from the top four, which means a better than expected performance in the second half of the season could see them deliver back-to-back top 10 finishes.

Can be done
Few thought that top half was unassailable last season as well, but Leeds managed to get that done.
To repeat that feat again is certainly not beyond this side, especially given how Bielsa will not allow complacency from his players.
They might not have started the season well, but performances in the last few games, have given the Whites supporters plenty to be optimistic about.
If they manage to beat Brentford over the weekend, it will be the first time this season they’ll have registered back-to-back wins.
Those three points would put them above Brentford and if other results go their way, they could end the gameweek in 11th place as well.
