MANCHESTER CITY are set to pip Liverpool to the Premier League crown in a pulsating head-to-head title race, according to a supercomputer.
The reigning champions lead the Reds by a single point.

And with just four games to go for both sides, the data machine reckons Pep Guardiola’s side will hold on despite their Champions League heartbreak.
City face Newcastle (h), Wolves (a) and West Ham (a) before hosting Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa on the final day.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have Tottenham (h), Villa (a) and Southampton (a) then take on Wolves at Anfield to finish their campaign.
And SBK have City as 4/9 favourites to lift the trophy on May 22 with Liverpool back at 2/1.

Chelsea look destined to finish third and are 1/5 to qualify for the Champions League.
It is Arsenal who are ahead of Tottenham in the betting to join them at Europe’s top table next season – 4/9 ahead of 9/5.
That leaves Manchester United at 1/20 to finish in the top six, especially with West Ham and Wolves’ tricky end to the season.
Leicester, fresh from their European exit at the Stadio Olimpico, lead a cluster of clubs still hoping to finish in the top half at 2/3.

The Foxes are expected to finish ninth followed by Brighton, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brentford and Southampton.
At the wrong end of the table, though, Watford (1/100) and Leeds (6/4) are the most likely teams to drop down to the Championship with already-relegated Norwich next term.
Recent wins have seen Burnley and Everton’s chances of going down reduced.
They are now 11/4 and 17/8 respectively for relegation.
That is despite Everton still sitting in the bottom three as it stands – although they do have a game in hand.
Frank Lampard’s men are on 32 points from 33 games, two points off Leeds and Burnley who are both on 34 from 34.
Arsenal and Leeds could have very different emotions come May 22Getty
