West Ham slumped to the foot of our Power Rankings despite gaining a point at Liverpool, while Chelsea stretched their lead at the summit.
There were some big scores from the league’s strugglers this weekend with Leicester and Swansea top-scoring with five points after crucial wins over Man City and Sunderland respectively.
Burnley also chalked up a huge win and banked four points and just six points separate the bottom nine in our alternative table.
Chelsea’s 1-0 win meant they stretched their lead at the top and we have them ahead of their official points tally. Liverpool are still second and they are rated above their official points tally, while Arsenal, who stay third are rated below their official 34-point tally.
In Power Rankings, we award points from 0.5 to 7, decided by an algorithm based on bookmaker odds and winning margins.
It rewards teams scoring lots of goals and also those defying expectations but sees odds-on favourites penalised for sneaking past inferior opponents by the odd goal.
Leicester – 5pts: Finally back in last season’s groove.
Swansea – 5pts: Most significant result of the weekend. Bob means business.
