Premier League Club Power Rankings: Week 2

David Silva's free kick against Huddersfield was among the best goals from last weekend in the Premier League. Find out which other goals made the cut.

First and foremost, a note from last week’s power rankings: Everyone knows you can look at the table to see where clubs stand in a given season, but we do power rankings because we like to have fun with our beloved games and aren’t a wet paper towel on the shoe of sports.

A few grains of salt — or 300 — are always recommended when dealing with power rankings, and our Premier League club power rankings are intended to be a show of how the clubs look in both form and forecast at a moment in time.

20. Huddersfield Town (Last week: 18) -- Two monstrous opponents: Combined 9-1 score
19. Cardiff City (Last week: 20) -- No threat vs 10-man Newcastle; Lack of striker looms
18. West Ham (Last week: 17) -- Pellegrini needs time; This may be wrong club for that
17. Fulham (Last week: 14) -- So many good components but how long will it take to gel?
16. Newcastle United (Last week: 13) -- Needed 3 points at Cardiff; Should have them
15. Burnley (Last week: 15) -- Understandably Europa League-weary, but depth a concern
14. Southampton (Last week: 16) -- No shame in losing to Toffees; Can Ings score 15?
13. Wolves (Last week: 10) -- Did we totally overlook a lack of Premier League defenders?
12. Brighton and Hove Albion (Last week: 19) -- That’s more like it. Pascal Gross = a beast
11. Bournemouth (Last week: 12) -- Win at West Ham probably a bonus three points
10. Leicester City (Last week: 11) -- Man Utd loss doesn’t look as easy to stomach this week
9. Arsenal (Last week: 9) -- It’ll happen under Emery, just not in time for Top 4 this season
8. Manchester United (Last week: 4) -- Is it rotting from Woodward down, or just Mourinho?
7. Crystal Palace (Last week: 6) -- Have a legit chance to be darlings of this PL season
6. Watford (Last week: 7) -- Will have to resist huge January bids for Abdoulaye Doucoure
5. Everton (Last week: 8) -- Are a Phil Jagielka red from sitting in second.
4. Tottenham Hotspur (Last week: 4) -- If Lucas Moura is comfortable now, look out
3. Chelsea (Last week: 3) -- Sarri will be daydreaming of his XI when Hazard is fit to start
2. Liverpool (Last week: 2) -- Lacked its cutting edge but still won at a difficult Selhurst Park
1. Manchester City (Last week: 1) -- Could’ve scored 10 and it would’ve been justified
