Final Premier League table predicted by simulation – and it’s bad news for Chelsea

Before the 2019/20 Premier League campaign was suspended, Chelsea had embarked on a decent run of form by going unbeaten in three league matches – including wins against Tottenham and Everton.

Frank Lampard’s side had suffered defeat to Manchester United for the second time this season, which has ignited the race for a top-four finish and Champions League football next term.
