Liverpool climbed back over neighbours Everton in our Power Rankings after Monday night’s victory over Watford, while Chelsea remain second despite winning at Everton.
Emre Can’s overhead kick was enough to move the Reds in third spot, while Tottenham still top our table after disposing of Arsenal at White Hart Lane.
Despite a defeat to Burnley, their first on the road all season, Crystal Palace remain the most underrated team, according to our rankings.
Sunderland also slipped to the foot of the table with Middlesbrough climbing above them.
