Note: You didn’t miss a week. I’ve changed the week number to reflect the week of the upcoming weekend instead of the prior one, if only because this is typically published on Thursday, and because it was starting to confuse me. I’ve also gone back and changed the prior entries in this series so that there is less confusion.
Week 9 is in the books, and we have one less winless team in the Premier League, with Cardiff City finally finding the winning column (much to my personal chagrin). But most of the movement in this week’s Power Rankings is at the bottom, with the bad teams remaining bad – Cardiff’s win was only against last week’s #16 team, after all – and the top five remaining unchanged for yet another week.
As a reminder, these Power Rankings are only for matches played in the league, though playing games elsewhere – like our six clubs with Champions/Europa League matches this week – might impact the rankings due to tired legs in the second match of the week.
