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)

Philippe Coutinho took advantage of a Vincent Kompany mistake to score the winning goal for Liverpool as they defeated Manchester City 3-2.  Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel also scored for Liverpool who control their own destiny as they chase the Premier League title.

2. Chelsea (LW-3)

Demba Ba struck in the 68th minute against 10 man Swansea City to lead Chelsea to a 1-0 victory.  The win keeps Chelsea firmly in Liverpool's rear view mirror as they battle for the title.

3. Manchester City (LW-2)

Manchester City dropped points in both games they played this week.  After falling 3-2 to Liverpool in an important title showdown, City needed a late goal to rescue a point in a midweek fixture against bottom of the table Sunderland.

4. Arsenal (LW-5)

A Lukas Podolski double and a goal from Olivier Giroud did the damage for Arsenal as they defeated West Ham 3-1.  The win helped the Gunners move ahead of Everton in the race for the final Champions League position.

5. Everton (LW-4)

Everton scored a 1-0 victory over Sunderland in their weekend fixture before dropping a critical two points in a 3-2 midweek loss to Crystal Palace.  Four points was not enough to keep them in a Champions League position.

6. Manchester United (LW-6)

Manchester United's game against Hull City was postponed due to Hull's participation in the FA Cup.

7. Tottenham (LW-7)

Jonas Olsson own goal, plus goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen led Tottenham back from a 3-0 deficit to grab a 3-3 draw with West Brom.  The victory keeps Tottenham's hope of playing in Europe alive and well.

8. Southampton (LW-8)

Southampton, safe in the middle of the table dropped a 1-0 result at home to Cardiff City.

9. Stoke City (LW-9)

Erik Pieters scored the only goal of the game in the first half to lead Stoke City to a 1-0 victory over Newcastle.  Stoke has never finished in the top half of the Premier League but they currently reside there in the table.

10. Crystal Palace (LW-14)

It was a huge six point week for Tony Pulis and Crystal Palace that should see them remain in the Premier League.  They knocked off Aston Villa 1-0 and then won a 3-2 midweek thriller against Everton.

11. Newcastle United (LW-10)

Newcastle dropped their fourth consecutive Premier League contest, falling 1-0 to Stoke City.  Over the course of those games they have conceded 12 goals while not replying once.

12. Hull City (LW-11)

Hull City's game against Manchester United was postponed due to their participation in the FA Cup.

13. West Ham United (LW-12)

Matthew Jarvis scored the only goal for West Ham as they fell 3-1 to Arsenal.

14. Swansea City (LW-13)

Chico Flores picked up two yellow cards in 17 minutes and Swansea were never able to get back on top of the game as they fell 1-0 to Chelsea.

15. West Bromwich Albion (LW-16)

After taking a 3-0 lead through Matej Vydra, Chris Brunt and Stephane Sessegnon just 31 minutes into the contest, West Brom was forced to settle for a 3-3 draw with Tottenham.  The equalizing marker came four minutes into second half stoppage time.

16. Aston Villa (LW-15)

Three more dropped point for Aston Villa as they fell 1-0 at the hands of Crystal Palace.  Villa continues to slip closer to the relegation zone.

17. Fulham (LW-18)

Hugo Rodallega scored a first half goal to lead Fulham to a 1-0 victory over Norwich City. 

18. Sunderland (LW-19)

It was one point from two games for Sunderland as they fell 1-0 to Everton before earning their single in a 2-2 draw against Manchester City.

19. Cardiff City (LW-20)

Cala's 65th minute marker was the difference as Cardiff City defeated Southampton 1-0.  The victory provides three important points to the Welsh side's efforts to stay in the Premier League.

20. Norwich City (LW-17)

Neil Adams fell in his first game in charge of Norwich City as they lost 1-0 to Fulham.  The Canaries dropped their seventh straight road contest and have to finish the season against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.
