Power Rankings

tie-1. Manchester United (26 Points)
Winner of the match this weekend is in first place. United remain absolutely en fuego, scoring 4 goals in every game they play.

tie-1. Arsenal (26 Points)
Arsenal and United are both on 26 points, but Arsenal have a game in hand. If they had taken full points off Liverpool over the weekend they'd be in first alone, but United cannot be ignored. This team also loses credit because of that trainwreck Almunia in net.

3. Chelsea (21 Points)
Can't put City over them, because City just got shown why they do not belong in the Champions League. Chelsea quietly are building a head of steam, and I don't see them stopping any time soon.

4. Blackburn (21 Points)
Shhhhhh, don't look now, but this team is on the verge of stepping up into the Champions League.

5. Liverpool (20 Points)
They need to take full points off their final 3 Champions League matches, to even have a chance at progressing into the knockout stage. Their league form has been poor as well. Mark Klautenberg gifted them a match against Everton 2 weeks ago, aside from that they would be in the middle of an embarassing stretch. By the way, Steven Gerrard is playing like ABSOLUTE crap. For Liverpool AND England.

6. Manchester City (22 Points)
That's what happens when you lose 6-0. I was shocked to see Chelsea run circles around this team, it didn't even look like they were trying.

7.Portsmouth (19 Points)
They've played Liverpool, Arsenal, United, and Chelsea. They drew United and Liverpool at home, in games that could have been won, and lost to Arsenal and Chelsea on the road. The fact that they have played those 4 matches and they are still on 19 points and in 7th on the table, speaks a lot for Harry.

8. Everton (16 Points)
They've been dropping a lot of points lately, but I think they will stumble onto their form and go on a nice run. Liverpool were extremely fortunate to beat them, and aside from that, Everton have been playing pretty well.

9. West Ham (14 Points)
Too many draws, but they really do play well. Some of those draws will eventually turn into wins for this club, and they will put up a good fight in the middle of the table.

10. Newcastle (17 Points)
Win a game, lose a game, win a game, lose a game. This team is frustrating. They go and beat Spurs 3-1, than lose to Reading 2-1.

11. Aston Villa (11 Points)
Sinking like a rock. My good friend Matt Clayton chose to support this team after I showed him the Villa-Chelsea match and the Villa-Liverpool match. He fell in love with Ashley Young, and hasn't looked back since. I kind of feel bad the way this team is just falling apart.

The remaining 9 teams just don't deserve to be talked about. They should all be relegated. I would rank them just as they lie on the table probably, maybe with Tottenham a few spots higher.
12. Reading
13. Birmingham
14. Tottenham
15. Fulham
16. Sunderland
17. Wigan
18. Middlesbrough
19. Bolton
20. Derby

I promise this much, Bolton and Derby will definitely be relegated at the end of this season.
