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. Liverpool (Last Week-1)
Steven Gerrard converted two more penalties as red hot Liverpool defeated West Ham 2-1 at Upton Park. The victory sets up a top of the table showdown against Manchester City.
2. Manchester City (LW-2)
After Yaya Toure and Rickie Lambert traded goals from the penalty spot, Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic all fired home to give Manchester City a 4-1 victory over Southampton and keep them in the thick of the title race.
3. Chelsea (LW-3)
Willian, Mohamed Salah and Frank Lampard were all on target for Chelsea as they knocked off Stoke City 3-0. Lampard's goal came after he missed from the penalty spot but fired home following up the save.
4. Everton (LW-5)
Goals by Steven Naismith, Romelu Lukaku and a Mikel Arteta own goal helped Everton's Champions League hopes with a 3-0 victory over Arsenal. It was Everton's sixth victory in a row as they now sit just a point behind the Gunners.
5. Arsenal (LW-4)
One single point is all that is currently keeping Arsenal in a Champions League position as they fell 3-0 to Everton, the team directly behind them in the standings. Everton also has a game in hand on the Gunners.
6. Manchester United (LW-6)
Juan Mata scored the first two goals which turned out to be enough damage, Javier Hernandez and Adnan Januzaj both also counted as Manchester United defeated Newcastle 4-0.
7. Tottenham (LW-7)
Emmanuel Adebayor's double added to goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Gylfi Sigurdsson were more than enough as Tottenham dismissed Sunderland 5-1.
8. Southampton (LW-8)
A very strong first half effort, that included a penalty goal from Rickie Lambert, was not enough to keep Southampton from a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City.
9. Stoke City (LW-9)
Stoke had their three game winning streak snapped as they fell 3-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
10. Newcastle United (LW-10)
For the fourth time in five games, Newcastle was condemned to Premier League defeat, this time 4-0 at the hands of Manchester United at St. James' Park.
11. Hull City (LW-14)
George Boyd headed home a first half marker which would prove to be enough as Hull City knocked off Swansea City 1-0.
12. West Ham United (LW-11)
Guy Demel scored the game's only goal from open play, however two converted penalties would see West Ham fall 2-1 to Liverpool.
13. Swansea City (LW-12)
Swansea City were lively but not able to find an equalizing marker as they fell 1-0 to Hull City.
14. Crystal Palace (LW-15)
Jason Puncheon scored twice and Joe Ledley also added a second half marker as Crystal Palace continued their relegation battle with a 3-0 victory over Cardiff City.
15. Aston Villa (LW-13)

Morgan Amalfitano scored in the 16th minute as West Brom held on to pick up a 1-0 victory over Norwich City.
17. Norwich City (LW-16)
In what would turn out to be manager Chris Hughton's last game in charge, Norwich City fell 1-0 at Carrow Road to West Bromwich Albion. Hughton would be fired following the loss and replaced by former player Neil Adams.
18. Fulham (LW-20)
Kieran Richardson and Hugo Rodallega were both on target for Fulham as they picked up three points in a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa.
19. Sunderland (LW-18)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team slipped closer to falling out of the Premier League as they were well beaten 3-0 at home against Crystal Palace.
