Prem Forecaster: LFC on top-4 bubble

Liverpool, which is unbeaten in 12 straight Premier League games, continues to steadily climb the league table.
Liverpool, which is unbeaten in 12 straight Premier League games, continues to steadily climb the league table.

In three rounds of Premier League games since Insider's previous Prem Forecaster, little has ultimately changed in the title or relegation races, though Chelsea did stumble momentarily. The Champions League race is where the true drama took place, as one team's struggles were a boon for two others.

As a reminder, the Forecaster is 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.

In this edition we examine table risers and fallers over the past few weeks; break down the title, Champions League and relegation battles; and preview an upcoming match with major Champions League qualification implications. To begin, here's our updated top-to-bottom table forecast:

The City manager said he wanted to "refresh" his team after he left the centre-back on the bench for the match at the Etihad Stadium and refused to confirm if he will return to the side for their next match at Burnley.

Kompany was culpable for goals scored by Barcelona's Luis Suarez and Liverpool's Jordan Henderson in his previous two appearances, while the Belgian struggled...
