And of course, not many could have predicted Chelsea or Liverpool having the toughest of seasons under Jurgen Klopp or that Graham Potter would end up managing the Blues post Thomas Tuchel.
The drama, the surprises even prompted punters to look into computer algorithms to understand how the premier league season will see to its end, and who the victors and losers will be come end of the season.

It is contrasting fortunes for both London sides.
The position Arsenal will finish in this season has been predicted by the supercomputer at bettingexpert.com.
The supercomputer predicts that Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will defeat Manchester City to win the Premier League this year.
Additionally, it predicted that Chelsea, under Graham Potter, would place eighth this season, far from the top four.
