TSN.ca presents its latest weekly power rankings for the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season. Rankings were weighted evenly between separate lists made by TSN Radio host and soccer analyst Gareth Wheeler as well as TSN.ca's soccer editors.

1. Chelsea (Last Week-1)

Frank Lampard's free kick in the 93rd minute evaded everyone, including Everton keeper Tim Howard, and found the net as Chelsea snatched a 1-0 victory over Everton.  Initially the goal was credited to John Terry, but was eventually changed to Lampard's winner by the goals committee.

2. Manchester City (LW-2)

Midfielder Yaya Toure scored the only goal as Manchester City held on for a 1-0 victory over Stoke.  Edin Dzeko had a chance to add to the advantage but missed an open net from two yards.

3. Liverpool (LW-3)

Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge both scored twice to lead Liverpool to a thrilling 4-3 victory over Swansea at Anfield.  The home side held 2-0 and 3-1 advantages in the first half but were pulled into a 3-3 tie, before finally netting the winner in the 74th minute.

4. Arsenal (LW-4)

Two goals from Olivier Giroud on his return to the lineup, including the opener five minutes into the contest, led the Gunners to a 4-1 victory over Sunderland.

5. Tottenham (LW-5)

Though they had a few scoring chances, Tottenham was not able to find the net as they fell 1-0 to Norwich.

6. Manchester United (LW-7)

Robin van Persie converted a penalty and Wayne Rooney celebrated his new contract with a goal as Manchester United cruised to a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace. 

7. Everton (LW-6)

It looked as though Everton was going to hang on for a well fought point, before Frank Lampard's winner three minutes into stoppage time sent Chelsea to a 1-0 victory over the visitors.

8. Newcastle United (LW-9)

Newcastle were winless since mid-January when Loic Remy scored in injury time to provide them with a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa. 

9. Southampton (LW-8)

Maya Yoshida scored in the eighth minute to give Southampton the lead, but despite a shot and possession advantage, they slumped to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of West Ham United.

10. West Ham United (LW-11)

After falling behind eight minutes into the match, West Ham scored twice in the first half and again in the second to earn a 3-1 victory over Southampton.  Matthew Jarvis, Carlton Cole and Kevin Nolan provided the offence.

11. Hull City (LW-14)

A brace from Nikica Jelavic, plus goals from Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore led Hull to an easy 4-0 victory over Cardiff.

12. Swansea City (LW-10)

Three goals at Anfield were not enough to spring an upset as Swansea fell 4-3 to Liverpool.  Jonjo Shelvey and Wilifried Bony scored for the Swans who were also gifted a Martin Skrtel own goal.

13. Norwich City (LW-18)

Robert Snodgrass was the difference as home standing Norwich beat Tottenham 1-0.  It was just the Canaries second victory in their last 12 league matches.

14. Aston Villa (LW-13)

A road point slipped through Aston Villa's fingers in the 92nd minute when they conceded a Loic Remy winner and fell 1-0 at the hands of Newcastle. 

15. Stoke City (LW-12)

Stoke frustrated title contender Manchester City in the first half and into the 70th minute before finally conceding the only goal in a 1-0 loss.

16. West Bromwich Albion (LW-16)

Matej Vydra scored four minutes from time to earn West Brom a 1-1 draw with Fulham. 

17. Crystal Palace (LW-15)

Glenn Murray made his first start in nine months but wasn't able to help Crystal Palace avoid a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

18. Sunderland (LW-17)

Emanuele Giaccherini scored for Sunderland in the 81st minute, but it was all they would get out of a 4-1 loss to Arsenal.

19. Fulham (LW-20)

Fulham keeper Maarten Stekelenburg flubbed a shot from Matej Vydra which squirted through him and into the net as the Cottagers were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw with West Brom.  Ashkan Dejagah opened the scoring for Fulham in the 28th minute.

20. Cardiff City (LW-19)

Cardiff is now 19th in the table after a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Hull City.  Two goals in each half doomed them to the heavy loss.
