Prediction site FiveThirtyEight has revealed its latest Premier League predictions, after the last round of fixtures saw Leeds United fall to Arsenal at the Emirates. 

Leeds face Wolves next on Friday night and the two teams are currently in 11th and 12th spot in the table.

FiveThirtyEight believes that is how they will end the season, with Leeds finishing on a round 50 points. Wolves will finish two points back.

The table makes for grim reading for West Brom fans, as their club is predicted to finish rock-bottom with less than half the points Leeds have got.

Manchester will dominate the top of the table with Man City finishing 18 points ahead of Man United.

Liverpool are predicted to finish in third, a further two points back.

11th place is fantastic

A win against Arsenal would have fired up talk of Leeds pushing for a European place again but from the fans that we’ve talked to, that’s not what everyone wants.

A mid-table finish this season, followed by a busy summer of transfers and a push for a top-half finish is perfect.

11th place in the Premier League this season is a brilliant achievement.

Europe would be great but it would stretch a squad that doesn’t have the experience or the depth yet and we don’t think we’re ready for it.

It’s all about taking things one season at a time. We don’t want to run before we can walk.

Finishing above Wolves would be some achievement – they’re a club that Radrizzani has name-checked as a model to follow.

However, they’re too reliant on Raul Jimenez and are a different side without him. Leeds could have the same problem if anything happened to Patrick Bamford.

And Sheffield United are showing what can happen if you don’t treat the Premier League as a serious long-term project.
