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.

West Ham get the job done to survive a weekend of FA Cup shocks

West Ham, Aston Villa and Arsenal walk away with fourth-round FA Cup wins a day after three top sides were defeated by lower-league opposition.

West Ham United carried out a thoroughly professional job in their hard-fought victory over League One side Bristol City in the fourth round of the FA Cup, going through 1-0 after Diafra Sakho had headed in Andy Carroll's superb cross.
