The winner of the Premier League title race between Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal has been predicted by a supercomputer.
Arsenal have defied their toughest detractors by consolidating their top-of-the-table supremacy, with the Gunners five points clear of second-placed City.
Arteta’s men defeated north London rivals Tottenham 2-0 earlier this month before stunning Manchester United 3-2 at the Emirates.
Arsenal, who have a game in hand, will face Guardiola’s side in the league at the Emirates next month, which might have a significant impact on the title battle this season.
