Power Rankings: Everton just 7 off top; strugglers escape drop zone

Date published: Monday 13th March 2017 10:35

Liverpool’s win over Burnley pulled them closer to Tottenham and Chelsea, while Hull moved out of the drop zone in our Power Rankings.

Hull lifted themselves out of the drop zone, Everton maintained their good form and Bournemouth are on the move.

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.

West Ham, who are 9th this time around, claimed the title by 3.5 points in our inaugural Power Rankings last season.

 

Matchday 28

Liverpool – 1.5pts: An ugly win and the first of the season, according to Jurgen Klopp.

B0urnemouth – 3pts: Showing off at home by missing two penalties and still winning.

Everton – 3.5pts: Far too strong for a switched off West Brom.

Hull City – 3pts: Fighting for their lives.
