Roberto Martinez and slumping Everton feeling the pressure

Everton coach Roberto Martinez looks ahead to his side's English Premier League trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Unity between those on the pitch and those in the stands is a fundamental part of football, even more so when the players and their manager are struggling to replicate past exploits. That's why Roberto Martinez's recent comments criticising fans who have been critical of the club instantly left you with your head in your hands.

Intended or otherwise, any questioning of supporters is a recipe for disaster. To run the risk of alienating those on the terraces is a dangerous game. There is enough anxiety,...

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.)

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