Premier League – Week 21 Power Rankings

Another week in the Premier League, and another couple of points added to the gap between the Top Six and everyone else. Nevertheless, this week’s Power Rankings’ top Six is a little different than the current league table, partly because we had a club from the “Muddled Middle” win over the sixth-place club from last week’s Power Rankings. Overall, only three clubs remained in place fom last week, so there were a lot of subtle shifts up and down the rankings.

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 20 Power Rankings

Our Power Rankings updated after matches played in the New Year results in a return to the top for our former long-term top club. But for the most part, the clubs of the Premier League remain stratified in their tier structure, with the Top 6 clear of the 7th place club by at least seven points, and the last club of the”muddled middle” four points ahead of the bottom six.

(UPDATED) Premier League – Week 16 Slate

Premier League clubs return to playing one game this week – except for the six clubs that played in European competition this week. After last week’s double-league action, we have a new club at the top of our weekly Power Rankings, though I don’t expect the former number one to stay down for long.

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.

(UPDATED) Premier League – Week 15 Slate

As mentioned in our weekly Premier League Power Rankings, the league this week will be playing twice, with matches kicking off later tonight. Furthermore, the clubs that are still alive in various tournaments will be playing multiple times over the next three weeks. For example, league leader Manchester City plays twice this week, a Champions League match on 12 December, another league match on 15 December, and an EFL Cup match on 18 December. Fitness will be important for all the clubs as they approach the midway point of the season, and this could be a window where the top clubs continue to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.

(UPDATED) Premier League – Week 14 Slate

Another week of Premier League action is in the books, and we have another full slate starting tonight. With six clubs playing in European competitions this week – and in advance of a week where the clubs will play twice – some clubs will be playing four matches over 14 days. Will this impact performance this weekend, or will we see the tired legs at the end of next weekend?
