Here’s week one of our Premier Power Rankings and Manchester dominates the top of the standings with us.
1. Manchester City
Pep’s men started as they’ll no doubt mean to go on, outclassing a mismatched Brighton.
2. Manchester United
Will Romelu Lukaku fire United to the title? On opening day form there’s a good chance.
3. Tottenham Hotspur
Fair to say they were playing against likely relegations candidate, but a win and clean sheet away.
Against a Leicester side that will worry most teams this season, the Gunners showed real spirit.
When you win away at the home of the Champions you deserve to be rated this highly.
6. Huddersfield Town
Neither David Wagner not the Terriers could ask for more from their Premier debut.
Great homecoming for Rooney, nice start for the Toffees.
Klopp’s men had to work hard for a point at Watford, and that defence still looks shaky.
9. West Bromwich Albion
The Baggies will face tougher tests, but could do little more than win at home.
When you lose at home as defending champions you deserve to be ranked this low.
11. Leicester City
Scoring three goals at the Emirates bodes well for the Foxes; conceding four, not so
They scored three times and almost got the better of more fancied rivals.
13. Swansea City
A hard-fought point at St Mary’s gives Swans a boost
Two points dropped at home and little threat up front.
15. Stoke City
Fought hard at Goodison but they need to find goal threats.
Slightly disappointing in their opener but they’ll improve
17. West Ham United
Hammered at Old Trafford. They need to put it behind them and get their season started next week.
18. Crystal Palace
Went down very tamely. The new manager will want a much improved show next time
19. Brighton & Hove Albion
A harsh welcome to the top flight but they won’t play many as good as City
20. Newcastle United
Abject performance made even worse by a stupid red card for their skipper.
