Arsenal’s win over Manchester United has seen them rise our Power Rankings, while Sunderland have lifted themselves off the foot of the table.
Goals from Granit Xhaka and Danny Welbeck were enough to see off United at The Emirates and they move up the table into seventh place, while Man City’s thumping win over Crsytal Palace helped them close the gap on Everton.
Palace though remain the most underrated team, according to our rankings, with Bournemouth second and West Brom third.
At the bottom Sunderland’s win means they are not down yet, but rock-bottom Middlesbrough are consigned to the Championship.
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.

Sunderland – 5.5pts: Amazing away win at fortress K Comm.
