Prem Forecaster: United won't finish top four, City faces must-win vs. CFC

Manchester United faces an uphill climb to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot.
Manchester United faces an uphill climb to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot.

Welcome to the second edition of Insider's Premier League Forecaster, an end-of-season table projection fueled by ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI), a regression-based algorithm designed to predict soccer matches. SPI simulates the remainder of the season 10,000 times, using the odds of each projected match, with the end result presented in the table below.

If you missed the inaugural version two weeks ago, click here for a primer and the previous table. (Note: The previous table forecast was incorrect due to a projection error. Chelsea, not Manchester City, should have been the projected favorite to win the league leading up to matches Jan. 10.)

With a lull in Premier League action last week due to FA Cup and Capital One Cup matches, in this edition we break down table risers and fallers over the past few weeks and preview what promises to be one of the most important matches of the season: Chelsea versus Manchester City on Saturday.

Here's a look at the latest forecast for all 20 Prem teams, along with breakdowns of the title, Champions League and relegation battles.

Zaha, Chamakh impress as Palace's astonishing hot streak continues

Marouane Chamakh, right, helped himself to a brace while Wilfried Zaha, left, had a hand in all three goals as Palace ran out 3-2 winners over the Saints.

There's a good chance we might have entered a parallel universe at the start of 2015. A universe where Palace win games, playing attacking, exciting football and are sixth favourites to win the FA Cup. If anyone had suggested such nonsense back in December when the Eagles were struggling to impress under Neil Warnock all that would have seemed like some sort of Hollywood sports epic, and yet here we are, three weeks into January, with Palace one of the form teams in England.

Ronald Koeman: Southampton's early FA Cup exit a 'pity' with big teams out

Graziano Pelle opened the scoring early, but Southampton eventually lost to Crystal Palace.

On a day of major upsets, Southampton joined other top Premier League clubs on their way out of the FA Cup, much to the chagrin of Saints boss Ronald Koeman.

Southampton joined Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham in bowing out of the competition on Saturday, and Koeman called the Saints' 3-2 defeat at Crystal Palace a "pity."
