When the Premier League resumes league play tomorrow, it will have been 11 days since the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United drew at the conclusion of the last Premier League week. We didn’t update our rankings at the end of that week because we were busy trying to cover all the Champions League and Europa League matches, but we are back with a fresh set of rankings just in time for the return to action.
As always, these rankings try to only take into account the action that happens in league play, and relative placement is based on the caliber of the opponents from week-to-week and the results. If a lower club loses to a top club they aren’t punished as harshly, but the inverse may result in tumble down the rankings (if there’s room). And while the top half of the rankings nearly match the league table exactly, this won’t always be the case.
