Week two of the Premier Power Rankings and on early form the two Manchester clubs look set to fight it out for the crown.
1 (+1). Manchester United
Eight goals scored, none conceded after two, admittedly pretty straight-forward, matches. That big summer layout by Jose looks money well spent.
2 (-1). Manchester City
But for a silly pair of yellows City might be sharing top spot but they still managed to dominate with 10 men.
3 (+4). Everton
Returning from the Etihad with a point is a big statement. Still a bit of a worry about where the goals might come from.
4 (-1). Tottenham Hotspur
Teams will play a lot worse than Spurs did on Sunday and win but they did seem to run out of ideas a little towards the end.
5 (+5). Chelsea
A great bounce back after that shock opener. Conte’s team have played three halves of good football but the other was awful.
6 (-). Huddersfield Town
Aaron Mooy was outstanding and looks a class act. David Wagner’s men continued to prove the doubters wrong.
7 (-3) Arsenal
It was the old familiar Arsenal at the weekend. Dominating possession but unable to finish and struggling when put under pressure at the back
8 (+1). West Bromwich Albion
The Baggies defence has comfortably kept a pair of clean sheets and although their start hasn’t been the toughest they can do little more than win.
9 (-1). Liverpool
Perhaps once the Phillip Coutinho saga is over, and he is back in the team, we will see the old Reds again but right now Sadio Mane is carrying them.
10 (+1). Leicester City
A good performance after their opening day heartbreak at The Emirates although admittedly it came against a poor side but Craig Shakespeare has something to build on.
11 (+1). Watford
Four points from his first two matches along with five goals scored was more than the new boss could have dreamed of and Hornets fans can look forward to a decent season.
12 (+3). Stoke City
A typical ‘old school’ Stoke performance got their season going after season that poor opening day. That should give Sparky’s boys a shot in the arm.
13 (+1). Southampton
Playing against ten men for an hour and winning with an injury-time penalty isn’t exactly the stuff of dreams but Saints should improve from here on.
14 (-9). Burnley
A big tumble in the rankings for Sean Dyche’s men as that opening day shock win was all but forgotten with a dull display in week two. Will Chris Wood make a difference?
15 (-2). Swansea City
It wasn’t until late on that Swans truly capitulated against the potential Champs so Paul Clement and his men shouldn’t be too disheartened with the home opener.
16 (+2). Crystal Palace
They’ve yet to score but loss number two was a lot more encouraging than the opening day home hammering so there are signs of hope.
17 (-). West Ham United
Starting with three away games is proving tough for the East Londoners but they showed some spirit after going down to 10 men on Saturday and now head for the North East.
18 (-2). Bournemouth
No goals scored against a pair of beatable opponents will be vastly disappointing for Eddie Howe and Cherries fans. Defoe to start the next game surely.
19 (-). Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton have looked some way short of Premier League class so far. They’ve made a couple of good signings lately but is it too little too late?
20 (-). Newcastle United
Toon finished above Huddersfield last season but you wouldn’t have thought so on Sunday’s showing. Odds on Rafa Benitez to be first boss to leave?
