Liverpool are in line for back-to-back Premier League titles, with experts predicting they will saunter to another trophy at the end of the season.
Jurgen Klopp's men ended a 30-year wait to win the league and the Reds have shown few signs of slowing down in the opening months of the 2020/21 campaign.
Injuries to the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez had raised concerns about their ability to retain the title, but with just one defeat in 14, they are in pole position.
Their 7-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out, ensured they will top the pile on Christmas Day for the second successive season.
Meanwhile, the likes of Leicester City, Manchester United, Everton, Chelsea and Tottenham have all enjoyed positive starts.
United are just five points behind the champions and with a game in hand, could close that gap even further.
But they won't be able to catch them…according to the latest simulation of the Premier League season anyway.
Bettingexpert.com have taken a look at the average final position of teams compared to their position on Christmas Day over the past 10 seasons, using current odds on each team’s final outcomes.
And with the team top at Christmas winning eight of the last 10 titles, Klopp's men are tipped to hold onto their advantage.
Elsewhere, Man City, who currently sit in 8th are predicted to remain there, with the average of teams in that position on December 25 remaining the same at the conclusion of the campaign.
