EFL Championship – Week 17 Slate

Championship Week 17 Fixtures/Results

We saw a lot of movement in our Power Rankings after a Week 16 that saw a lot of upsets. This week appears to be no different, with a lot of matches between clubs that are within a few spots of each other. But it’s also another week where top clubs Norwich City and Leeds United should remain at the top of the league table, with a potential expansion of their current lead due to many other top ten clubs facing off this week.

Per usual, the number in parenthesis before each club is where they fell on our Week 17 Power Rankings. Home clubs are listed first. We’ll keep this updated throughout the weekend, with winning indicated in bold, while matches that end in draws will have their clubs italicized.

Championship Week 16 Fixtures/Results

The results from last week, when each club played twice, didn’t have the impact on the Power Rankings I was expecting, but it was still an exciting week nonetheless. This week doesn’t appear to be much different, with about half of the matches being hosted by a lower-ranked club this week. With the Championship being deemed the best league in England, nearly any team can find success week to week (sorry Ipswich Town supporters).

EFL Championship – Week 16 Power Rankings

With a draw on Monday night, Week 15 of the Championship came to a close, with all the clubs playing twice. As I anticipated last week, the double-barrelled action had a dramatic impact on the Power Rankings, with only four clubs staying put from last week.

Most clubs this week also had split results; only four clubs either won twice or lost twice, and no club drew twice. As always, these rankings are an attempt to get a pulse on the current state of each club, and don’t always match the club’s position in the league table.

EFL Championship – Week 15 Power Rankings

Week 14 in the Championship is in the books, and it went pretty much as expected. As such, the top six clubs remain in place from last week’s Power Rankings, and no team moved more than three spots up or down the rankings.

We are entering another week where the Championship will see each club play twice, so expect some movement in next week’s rankings, but for now, let’s take a look at how the clubs below the top six moved around this week. As always, these rankings are only based on the performance in league play.

(UPDATED) EFL Championship – Week 13 Slate

The Championship will be on an international break again next week, so this weekend’s action will be the last for most clubs until after Thanksgiving. Action will kick off on Friday night with the Steel City Derby between Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday, which pits two rivals heading in two different directions, and closed out with our Match of the Week on Saturday afternoon. It should be a thrilling week leading up to the break for sure!

As always, the number in parenthesis before each team represents their current rank in our weekly Power Rankings. As the matches progress, we will update this list with results, with winning teams in bold and drawn teams in italics.
