Premier League – Week 25 Power Rankings

Note: This weekly publishing spot is usually reserved for our Championship Power Rankings, but with one more Championship match this week, we’ll be updating those tomorrow morning.

Only sixteen clubs in the Premier League played league games this past weekend – congrats to the Carabao Cup champion Manchester City, by the way – but there was still some movement in our Power Rankings from last week. I tried not to punish or reward the four clubs that didn’t play, but if other clubs around them moved as a result of their results, it may have caused the idle clubs to shift around a bit.

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.

(UPDATED) Premier League – Week 24 Slate

Premier League Week 24

It’s Matchday 27 for the Premier League clubs playing this week, but we won’t have a full slate of matches this weekend. Everton and Manchester City played twice last week to reach 28 matches played already, and Chelsea will be playing Manchester City in the final of the EFL Cup on Saturday. Brighton & Hove Albion, Chelsea’s originally scheduled opponent for this weekend, gets another three days off before returning to action on Tuesday.

Nevertheless, it’s been 11 days since we’ve seen our last match in the league. For the clubs playing in non-league competitions, they’ve still been as busy, but for a lot of the league, it’s been a much needed break as we prepare to head down the home stretch of the season.

As always, the number in parenthesis before each club reflects their spot on our Power Rankings, and we’ll try to keep this list updated as the week progresses. Home teams are listed first, and winners will be indicated in bold. In the event of a draw, both teams will be placed in italics.

Premier League – Week 24 Power Rankings

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.

Premier League Week 23

Matchday 26 in the Premier League kicks off a little later today with action from Goodison Park, but only Everton and Manchester City will be playing twice this week.

Premier League – Week 23 Power Rankings

Premier League clubs played twice last week, and with this week’s action kicking off later today, we’re releasing the update to our last batch of Power Rankings a day early. There’s a change at the top, some shuffling in the middle, and the bottom looks the same (per usual).

As always, these results try to reflect the week-to-week results, and only account for matches played in the Premier League. Most of the clubs are fairly closely aligned with their league table position, but losses to lower-ranked clubs – or wins against the higher-ranked ones – can move them dramatically out of position.

Premier League Week 22

After taking a week off for cup action, the Premier League returns with a double slate this week, with clubs playing both midweek and over the weekend. For the three clubs playing in both cups, weekend matches this week will be their fourth match in 11 days, so they will probably be holding their first-team squads back during cup play.
