Power Rankings: Result of the season sees Palace climb above Arsenal

Date published: Tuesday 11th April 2017 10:15

Crystal Palace pulled off the result of the season against Arsenal to climb above the Gunners, while Chelsea have fallen further behind the leaders in our Power Rankings.

Palace’s 3-0 demolition of Arsene Wenger’s me saw them leap from 13th to seventh.

Manchester United’s 3-0 cruise at Sunderland has sent them climbing three places, while the real table leaders Chelsea fell further behind, despite winning at Bournemouth.

Liverpool and Everton remain in pursuit after their respective victories and there was little movement at the bottom as five of the bottom six all lost – only Middlesbrough managed to avoid defeat.

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 14th this time around, claimed the title by 3.5 points in our inaugural Power Rankings last season.
