The English Premier League is a mercurial mistress. Countless types of logic and endless metrics inform the plethora of statisticians and odds makers tracking the league table week-to-week, month-to-month, season-to-season. From the long-game academic analysis of Soccernomics to the quantifiable metrics of Opta, sources and methods for predicting the Premier League table come May are bountiful and diverse. 

In the 2000s, the logic of wealth has become undeniable in the Premier League. With its influx of tremendous amounts of oil money, Manchester City has become a European power to reckon with. Ditto with Roman Abramovich and Chelsea. Yet, when Sir Alex Ferguson was still behind the reigns of Manchester United and attracting the world's top talent, it was clear that the power of wealth means nothing without the right manager and combination of players. 

Still, even considering the power of wealth to buy the best players in the world, there's no perfect way to predict the Prem table come May. In 2015, Leicester City blew the world's collective mind by winning the league. Tottenham and Everton spend significantly less money than most other teams, yet consistently finish in the top 10 in the 2010s. Perhaps the only real way to predict the final Premier League table is random guess work; it's certainly the most fun way to do so, and with the state of the league in 2016, maybe the only way to get things right.
