Leaps for Leicester City, Manchester United, and Bournemouth highlight our Power Rankings heading into this international break.

[ FOLLOW: All of PST’s PL coverage ]


20 (20)Sunderland: Jermain Defoe says he needs to play in the Premier League to represent England, which means the Black Cats would be hit extra hard by relegation.
19 (19)Middlesbrough: Finally scored a goal against Manchester United... but allowed three.
Hull City logo
18 (18)Hull City: Once Tom Huddlestone was sent off, the Tigers essentially quit against Everton. That’s troubling for manager Marco Silva.
17 (15)Swansea City: A disappointing loss that threatens to halt Swans’ momentum toward safety.
16 (11)Watford: Losers of three in four, and by almost any manner possible. The latest? Troy Deeney’s pinpoint header into his own goal.
15 (16)Crystal Palace: Another win! But it’s a bit alarming that it took an own goal for Palace to finish the job against Watford.

14 (14)Burnley: The Clarets haven’t won since the tail end of January.
13 (12)West Ham United: Slaven Bilic’s future has to be in question as the Irons have regressed to below even Sam Allardyce era levels.
12 (17)Bournemouth: Winners of consecutive PL matches for the first time since March 2016, and not a moment too soon for Eddie Howe’s Cherries.
Leicester City logo
11 (13)Leicester City: Six points clear of safety and facing Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.
10 (10)Southampton: Lost to a fine Spurs side after winning two-straight, and probably was good enough to get a point.
9 (8)Stoke City: A gut punch to lose late to Chelsea.

8 (5)Arsenal: Matches-in-hand keep Top Four dreams in play, but the Gunners have been awful.
7 (9)West Bromwich Albion: Beating Arsenal after a pair of losses is the definition of rebounding in style.

6 (3)Liverpool: An Adam Lallana missed sitter away from a much improved feeling, but that’s the Liverpool season in a nutshell.

5 (6)Everton: Given a remaining Merseyside Derby and the inconsistent play of both Liverpool and Arsenal, the Top Five isn’t out of the question.
4 (4)Manchester City: Looked very much like a team nursing UCL wounds in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool, but it sure could have been worse.
3 (7)Manchester United: Last Premier League loss? October 23.
2 (2)Tottenham Hotspur: Scrapped a 2-1 win against tricky Southampton. Virtually identical season as Chelsea in terms of goals, goals conceded... just not wins.
1 (1)Chelsea: Have won 10 of 15 on the road in league play after wins at Stoke and West Ham.
