Super computer reveals brand new Everton relegation prediction after points deduction
Everton have a 33.8 per cent chance of being relegated from the Premier League this season, according to Opta’s supercomputer.
The sports analytics company reported on its website on Monday (20 November) that its supercomputer, which has simulated the rest of the campaign 10,000 times, believes Burnely have an 80.5 per cent chance of going down, while Sheffield United sit at 76.9 per cent and Luton Town are at 71.1 per cent.
It said the Toffees had just a 3.5 per cent chance of going down prior to being hit with a 10-point deduction before rising to 33.8 per cent, placing them slightly more at risk of being relegated than Bournemouth, who have a 29.1 per cent chance of facing the drop.
There are many unknowns that lie ahead for Everton that could affect whether or not they will be relegated from the Premier League this season.
While the recent form suggests that shouldn’t be too much of a worry and they are capable of climbing away from danger, there are a number of outside factors that could come into play.
The deduction could have impacted morale around the club and the players, while any issues regarding the proposed takeover by 777 Partners could have a detrimental effect.
With the ongoing financial situation surrounding the Toffees, there is also a risk around playing retention in January depending on where the club stands on that front.
But there should be optimism still amongst the fanbase and the players because the performances have been solid recently and they will be keen to keep that momentum going over the next few weeks.
