Tottenham took another step to becoming our Power Rankings champions, while Manchester United have slipped below Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.
Tottenham are closing in on the TEAMtalk Power Rankings crown after sinking Manchester United at White Hart Lane. They have a seven-point lead over real champions Chelsea.
United’s poor showing at the Lane sees them slip to ninth place and they are closing in on the title of the most overrated team in the league, while wins for Crystal Palace, Swansea and Bournemouth secures their places as the league’s most underrated teams.
Only Middlesbrough are relegated so far with 10 teams still battling to avoid the other two relegation places.
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.
C Palace – 5pts: Ruthless home display with some luck mind.
Liverpool -5pts: Coutinho arrived at the party; West Ham were on the beach.
Swansea – 4pts: Crucial away win at Sunderland.
Arsenal – 4pts: Fantastic away day at Stoke.
Southampton – 3pts: A win at already-relegated Boro.
Tottenham – 2pts: Champions-elect.
Bournemouth – 2pts: Could end the season in the top six.
Everton – 1.5pts: Routine home win.
Man City – 1.5pts: Rolled Leicester over with a slice of luck.
Chelsea – 1.5pts: Dogged in victory at WBA.
