The threat of a breakaway by the Premier League's 'Big Six' has already got the bookmakers compiling odds for a 2021/22 campaign stripped of Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool.
However, when you ignore matches involving the big six this term, it would actually be West Ham United leading the way. And by some margin.
Here, Planet Sport looks at how the tables from the last 10 years would look, stripped of the European Super League aspirants.
West Ham are mounting an unlikely title challenge but, stripped of the big six, they would be nearly home and hosed when it came to the title.
Obviously, it would depend on their form against the six teams who would come into the replace the likes of Man Utd and Man City, but everything suggests the Hammers would be the team to watch if the 2021/22 campaign kicked off with the potential Super League sides.
Meanwhile, at the bottom, it is still Sheffield United, West Brom and Fulham filling the bottom three spots.
Leicester City proved the best of the rest in 2019/20, with Burnley, despite finishing tenth overall, in second.
The bottom three again remains the same. However, West Ham's improvement against lesser lights this season is highlighted, with the Hammers only picking up 29 points in their 26 games in 2019/20 compared to the 49 this campaign from five games fewer.
Watford finished 11th in the Premier League in 2018/19 with 50 points. Yet, incredibly, 47 of those were picked up against non Big Six clubs, pushing them to the top of the table.
At the bottom, Brighton survived despite having a slightly worse record against the Big Six than Cardiff.
This was also one of only four seasons out of the last ten that the Big Six have made up the actual top six in the top flight.
A seventh-placed finish in the Premier League converts to top spot in the 14-team league for Burnley. Everton push them close, while again the bottom three are the same three clubs that dropped down to the Championship.
Everton were by some way the best of the rest as Chelsea, Tottenham, Man City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Man Utd made up the first six in the Premier League in 2016/17 and it is no surprise to see them comfortably top this table.
The bottom three all waved goodbye to the top flight.
They won the league with the Big Six and it would have been a procession without them with Leicester amassing 19 more points than Southampton. Maybe stripping the competition of the big guns wouldn't make the Premier league more exciting after all.
Southampton finished seventh behind the Big Six in 2014/15, with their performances against eighth to 20th putting them well clear of the rest in our reimagined table.
Still no respite for the bottom three, with the QPR, Hull and Burnley all going down, albeit in a different order.
Everton finished fifth in the Premier League in 2013/14 so not surprisingly sit top of the table without the Big Six.
At the bottom, West Brom, despite their poor record against clubs outside the Big Six, survived, while Fulham went down with 32 points.
Everton again prove the best of the rest, though there are only ten points between West Ham in second and Southampton in 12th.
Wigan joined Reading and QPR in the Championship.
We want a European Super League cry the Newcastle fans as they look back to 2011/12. A fifth-placed Premier League finish converts to a handy seven-point advantage over Everton at the top of our 14-team table and a title that would have been celebrated long and hard on Tyneside.
