It’s often said that results between the so-called ‘Big Six’ - Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal - define the destiny of the Premier League title and Champions League qualification come the end of the season.
City led the way last term, winning eight of ten matches against their closest rivals, and ultimately went on to defend their crown.
So ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, BT Sport asked Google Cloud, Opta and Squawka to crunch the numbers to see if they could predict what will happen this time around.
The result is the full ‘Big Six’ mini-league section of the script below and once you've checked it out, there's much more from The Script to get your teeth into, including team-by-team season previews.
