Newcastle are predicted to survive by a narrow margin, however, with 38 points – enough to put them into 15th place on goal difference.

Aston Villa are tipped to come 19th with 34 points, and Bournemouth 18th with 36 points.

Manchester City are predicted to finish top with 80 points, Arsenal second with 78 points, and Manchester United third with 75 points.
