ALL four English teams have a battle on their hands to win their respective Champions League groups.
Our supercomputer boffins have been hard at work calculating what will happen as Europe’s premier competition reaches Matchday Four this week.
The brainiacs over at OLBG have run the numbers and they think that just one of the four Premier League teams won’t win their group – despite only Manchester City being top of theirs after three games.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won all three of their matches thus far – conceding just one goal in the process.
A 4-0 win in Seville, followed up by 2-1 and 5-0 home wins over Borussia Dortmund and FC Copenhagen respectively have put City in a commanding position.
And the supercomputer has them at an equally commanding 1/50 to win Group G ahead of tonight’s clash in Copenhagen.
For Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool, meanwhile, things may be a little less serene.
The Blues got their campaign off to a ropy start, with the 1-0 defeat in Zagreb seeing off former boss Thomas Tuchel.
Graham Potter’s men drew 1-1 with RB Salzburg at Stamford Bridge in his first game in charge, before they got back on track last week with a 3-0 win over AC Milan.
Despite two of their remaining three games being away from home, and currently sitting second in the group, Chelsea find themselves at 4/5 to come through top of the pile ahead of tonight’s meeting in Milan.

Spurs beat Marseille 2-0 in North London on Matchday One before falling to a disastrous late 2-0 defeat against Sporting in Lisbon.
Last week they drew 0-0 in Frankfurt to leave Group D in the balance.
Sporting sit top on six points, with Spurs second on four. Eintracht also have four, with Marseille bottom on three but very much still in the mix.
Despite the tightness of the group Tottenham are still 1/1 to make it through in top spot going into tomorrow night’s home match with Eintracht.
Liverpool, on the other hand, are predicted to come second in Group A.
The Reds sit tenth in the Premier League after a disastrous start to the season that has seen them win just two of their opening eight games.
Their European campaign also started in horrendous fashion as they were battered 4-1 by Napoli in Italy.
They’ve managed to get back on track since, picking up 2-1 and 2-0 home wins against Ajax and Rangers respectively.
But the supercomputer reckons the Reds will be beaten to top spot by Napoli – with the Serie A side 2/5 to win the group compared to Liverpool’s 15/8.
The Reds are back in action tomorrow night when they face Rangers in Glasgow.
Chelsea have arrived in Milan for their crunch clash with the Serie A champions
Tottenham are hard at work at Hotspur Way ahead of tomorrow’s match
