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.
