But there is better news for their London rivals Chelsea, who have been tipped to squeeze their way into the top four.

Interestingly, despite earlier being touted to challenge Liverpool for the title, Man City are set to finish eighth no thanks to their equally floundering form.

The Reds are predicted to successfully defend the domestic crown at the end of the season, with Leicester and Man United finishing second and third respectively.

Tottenham Hotspur, who many asserted are in the title race are set to drop to seventh, with Everton finishing above them in fifth.

Fulham will be perhaps the biggest gainers, with the Craven Cottage based side predicted to finish 15th above Arsenal.

Burnley, Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion have not been given any chance to survive, with the three clubs tipped for relegation.

Should the Baggies drop to Championship, it would be the first time Sam Allardyce will be relegated from the top-flight.
