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

Willian, Ramires and eventually Jose Mourinho were all sent off as Chelsea fell to Aston Villa 1-0.  The league leaders are still four points clear of Liverpool, but the Reds have a game in hand.

2. Manchester City

Goals by David Silva and Edin Dzeko helped Manchester City overcome a 10th minute red card to Vincent Kompany, as they cruised to a 2-0 victory over Hull City.

3. Liverpool

Steven Gerrard scored twice from the penalty spot and Luis Suarez also found the net as Liverpool beat Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford.  Gerrard had a third attempt at a penalty and just missed picking up Liverpool's first hat trick at Old Trafford since 1936.

4. Arsenal

A Tomas Rosicky rocket in the second minute was enough to give Arsenal a 1-0 victory over Tottenham in the North London Derby.   This was the Gunners first victory at White Hart Lane since 2007.

5. Everton

Seamus Coleman scored with the last kick of the match to give his Everton side a 2-1 victory over Cardiff City.  Gerard Deulofeu also scored for Everton.

6. Tottenham

Tottenham spent 88 minutes trying to overcome conceding a second minute marker but were not able to find an equalizer in a 1-0 loss to Arsenal in the latest North London Derby.

7. Manchester United

It was a tough day at Old Trafford for Manchester United as they fell 3-0 to Liverpool. Two of the three goals were scored from the penalty spot, while the third penalty they gave up was rattled off the post.

8. Southampton

Morgan Schneiderlin, Rickie Lambert, Jay Rodriguez and Sam Gallagher all found the score sheet as Southampton defeated Norwich City 4-2.

9. Newcastle United

Newcastle were not able to find a way past Fulham keeper David Stockdale as they fell 1-0 to Fulham.  Manager Alan Pardew served the first match of the ban he received for his headbutt of Hull midfielder David Meyler.

10. Aston Villa

Fabian Delph's 82nd minute marker was the difference as Aston Villa picked up a big 1-0 victory over Chelsea.  Villa's goal came against a 10-man Chelsea squad that was reduced to nine before fulltime.

11. Stoke City

Peter Odemwingie's brace and Marko Arnautovic's winner helped Stoke to a 3-1 victory over West Ham United.

12. Hull City

Hull City was not able to take advantage of a Manchester City 10th minute red card as they dropped a 2-0 game.  David Meyler and Jake Livermore both had chances but could not get their side on the board.

13. West Ham United

Andy Carroll scored his first goal of the season but it wasn't enough as West Ham slumped to a 3-1 loss at the hands of Stoke City.

14. Swansea City

Roland Lamah opened the scoring for Swansea in the second minute but it wasn't enough as the home side fell 2-1 to West Bromwich Albion.

15. West Bromwich Albion

Stephane Sessegnon scored in the 52nd minute and Youssuf Mulumbu fired home the winner in the 85th as the Baggies knocked off Swansea 2-1

16. Norwich City

It was a 4-2 defeat for Norwich City at the hands of Southampton as Johan Elmander and Robert Snodgrass scored in the losing cause.

17. Sunderland

Fabio Borini's late winner was turned away by the crossbar as Sunderland and Crystal Palace played to a 0-0 draw.

18. Crystal Palace

Keeper Julian Speroni was forced into an important save to help Palace gain a point in their matchup against Sunderland in a scoreless draw.

19. Fulham

Ashkan Dejagah scored in the 68th minute to lead Fulham to a 1-0 victory over Newcastle.  The substitute scored eight minutes after entering the game.

20. Cardiff City

Cala scored for Cardiff but it wasn't enough as they fell 2-1 at the hands of Everton.
