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)

Liverpool are now five points clear at the top of the table after a spirited 3-2 victory over Norwich City.  Raheem Sterling scored twice and Luis Suarez added the other for the Reds.

2. Manchester City (LW-3)

Pablo Zabaleta, Sergio Aguero and Martín Demichelis were all on target for Manchester City, who kept their slim title hopes alive with a 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion.  Midfielder David Silva was stretchered off in the 67th minute for City.

3. Chelsea (LW-2)

Chelsea's title hopes took a major hit as they fell 2-1 to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge, ending Jose Mourinho's perfect league home record.  Samuel Eto'o gave them the lead after 12 minutes but their fate was sealed after conceding a late penalty.

4. Arsenal (LW-4)

Aaron Ramsey and a Lukas Podolski double were more than enough as Arsenal held on to fourth place with a 3-0 victory over Hull City.

5. Everton (LW-5)

Everton kept their Champions League hopes alive with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United in David Moyes' return to Goodison Park.  Leighton Baines and Kevin Mirallas did the damage for Everton who kept pace with Arsenal in the race for fourth place.

6. Tottenham (LW-7)

Paulinho, Harry Kane and Younes Kaboul were all on target for Tottenham as they defeated Fulham 3-1 at White Hart Lane.

7. Manchester United (LW-6)

David Moyes' unsuccessful return to Goodison Park would spell the end of Manchester United's chances to make the Champions League and his tenure as manager of the club.  Moyes was fired by United after dropping his 11th league game of the season.

8. Southampton (LW-8)

Despite enjoying 68% of the possession, Southampton was not able to strike the decisive blow and instead settled for a 0-0 draw against Aston Villa.

9. Stoke City (LW-9)

Marko Arnautovic's first half penalty was canceled out in the second half as Stoke settled for a 1-1 draw with Cardiff City.

10. Crystal Palace (LW-10)

Mile Jedinak's 59th minute penalty was the difference as Crystal Palace defeated West Ham 1-0, guaranteeing their Premier League survival.

11. Newcastle United (LW-11)

Make it five straight Premier League defeats for Newcastle as they fell 2-1 at home against Swansea.  Shola Ameobi gave them a lead after 23 minutes but they were not able to find another goal.

12. Swansea City (LW-14)

Wilfried Bony scored in injury time of both the first and second half to lead Swansea to a 2-1 victory over Newcastle.  His winning marker was from the penalty spot after a foul on teammate Marvin Emnes.

13. Hull City (LW-12)

Tough day at KC Stadium as Hull was defeated 3-0 by Arsenal.  The Tigers are currently sitting just above the relegation battle.

14. West Ham United (LW-13)

Despite being on top of the action, West Ham could not find the net as they fell 1-0 at home to Crystal Palace.

15. Aston Villa (LW-16)

After losing four straight games, Aston Villa earned a point in a 0-0 draw against Southampton.

16. West Bromwich Albion (LW-15)

Graham Dorrans scored the lone goal as West Bromwich Albion fell 3-1 to Manchester City.

17. Sunderland (LW-18)

A recently good run of form is developing for Sunderland as they claimed a shock road 2-1 victory over Chelsea.  Connor Wickham and Fabio Borini provided the offence for the Black Cats who inched closer to getting off the bottom of the table.

18. Cardiff City (LW-19)

It was a penalty for each side at Cardiff City Stadium as the Welsh side drew 1-1 with Stoke City.

19. Fulham (LW-17)

Steve Sidwell's 37th minute marker was all Fulham could muster as they were defeated 3-1 on the road against Tottenham.

20. Norwich City (LW-20)

Norwich threw everything they had at Liverpool but in the end were forced to settle for a 3-2 defeat at Carrow Road.  Gary Hooper and Robert Snodgrass scored the goals for the Canaries.
