Premier League – Week 27 Power Rankings

This past week in the Premier League went kind of as expected; the top teams won – or beat each other – and the bottoms team lost. Nevertheless, fourteen teams are in different spots then they were last week but the clubs are generally in the same spots in our Power Rankings that they are in the league table.

This week’s slate is abbreviated a bit, with only 10 clubs in action due to scheduling problems from the six clubs playing in the FA Cup quarterfinals. That action leads to a week-long break, with all the clubs coming back on 30 March to finish out the last eight or nine matches of the season.

(UPDATED) Premier League – Week 26 Slate

Premier League Week 26

Matchday 30 (29 for Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion) in the Premier League is a standard Saturday and Sunday affair this week. We are coming down the homestretch, and after next week’s slate, the Premier League (and the Championship) will be taking the week off for cup competition, but then it will be straight through to the end of the season in May.

I don’t expect the top of the table to find any new teams before the end of the season, though the order of the clubs may be jostled a bit between now and the end of the season. Is there a club that’s going to make a surprise run? Is a top club going to stumble? Chances are probably not, but that’s why they meet on the pitch and not on paper.

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 25 Slate

Premier League Week 25

It’s Matchdays 28 and 29 for the bulk of the Premier League this week (Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion will be playing 27 and 28), and each club will be playing twice this week. When the weekend is complete, we’ll have nine matches left, and chances are, the top six will be the top six when all is said and done on 12 May, with maybe only the order left to firm up.

(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.
