    @Ahmer would you allocate an extra point for order? As in you predict 1st,2nd,3rd & 4th in the exact order that happens

    If it's necessary, we can use that as a tie breaker, yes.

    I said City, Utd, Chavski, Spurs, and strangely not a single one of them said the same. Closest was "SAM" I guess. He/it also has Leicester 9th whereas I've said 8th. Feels odd that I was nearer to a computer that I was to all those people.

    I'd love to know what data the super computer used to generate those predictions. Most statistical metrics don't remotely correspond with those results.

    what do most statistical metrics predict?

    Well using data from last season, most should have Tottenham, City and Arsenal as nailed on for the top four. Of course spending 150 million pounds or getting a new manager can skew these predictions but how can these factors be quantified in a way that a computer can perceive them? Maybe it's more advanced than what I can understand, it is super after all.

    I remember seeing that the SAM predicts Man Utd 10 additional points from Pogba and Ibrahimovic alone, so I guess it is heavily weighted on new signings. Article doesn't really enlighten much. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/37004327

    statsbomb.com has made some really excellent previews for the season. This article was very handy: http://statsbomb.com/2016/08/premier-league-preview-teaser-6-into-4-wont-go/ but their individual team previews are more in depth. The best model from last year was that of Chad Murphy (@soccermetric on Twitter) who was one of the only people to actually project Leicester finishing in the top half of the table before the season began. His projections will be released tonight.

    I can't separate the two Manchesters for the title, I've gone with City so that I don't have to put Mourinho as Manager of the Year.
