ted them to a pair of runs and nine presents its latest weekly power rankings for the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season. Rankings were weighted evenly between separate lists made by TSN Radio host and soccer analyst Gareth Wheeler as well as TSN.cas soccer editors. 1. Arsenal (Last Week-1) Mesut Ozil opened the scoring for the Gunners but they only held the lead for four minutes as they drew Everton 1-1 at Emirates Stadium.  Olivier Giroud came a post away from giving the Gunners all the points.  Arsenal are still top of the table, five points clear of both Liverpool and Chelsea. 2. Manchester City (LW-2) While Sergio Agueros scoring touch continued so did Citys poor road form as they were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw with Southampton.  After Agueros strike in the 10th minute, City were wasteful with chance after chance to double the lead before they conceded the equalizer before the half.  Aleksandar Kolarov and Aguero were the two guiltiest of not getting that second goal. 3. Liverpool (LW-4) In what was eventually ruled a two goal performance, Luis Suarez once again led Liverpool to a huge victory, 4-1 over West Ham.  After scoring his teams third goal in the 81st minute, Suarez fired a ball that deflected off West Ham defender Joey OBrien and into the net.  Originally credited as an own goal, the dubious goals panel decided to award the 84th minute marker as a second for Suarez bringing his season total to 15. 4. Chelsea (LW-3) Two Andre Schurrle goals were not enough as Chelsea fell 3-2 to Stoke City.  After opening the scoring in the ninth minute, Schurrle pulled his team even in the 53rd, just three minutes after they had fallen behind for the first time in the contest.  Chelsea pressed with the game tied and in the short time they had after falling behind, but were not able to find a third goal to leave with a point. 5. Everton (LW-5) Gerard Deulofeu scored in the 84th minute as Everton collected a well-earned point on the road against Arsenal.  The Toffees are on a roll after beating Manchester United and collecting a point against the Gunners, they are fifth in the table one point behind Manchester City for fourth. 6. Newcastle United (LW-9) Yohan Cabaye scored the difference maker as Newcastle picked up a 1-0 victory over Manchester United.  Tim Krul picked up the clean sheet for the Magpies, who are one point out of the European places and only two points from a spot in the coveted top four. 7. Tottenham (LW-6) After falling behind, Spurs took control of a 2-1 victory over Sunderland.  With the help of an opponents own goal, Tottenham won their second straight game as Paulinho also found the mark for the North London side.  Jermain Defoe hit the post twice and fired wide with another chance so the game could have been out of sight earlier. 8. Southampton (LW-8) Dani Osvaldo scored one of the goals of the season and the Saints held off a late charge to draw Manchester City 1-1.  Osvaldo beat City captain Vincent Kompany and defender Pablo Zabaleta before firing a strike into the top corner of the net just before halftime.  While City pressed for a go ahead marker Southampton was with them step for step and in the end got a deserved point out of the contest. 9. Manchester United (LW-7) With Wayne Rooney, who has been their best player this season suspended due to yellow card accumulation, United fell 1-0 to Newcastle to further jeopardize their title defence.  The Champions lost back to back home contests for the first time since 2002.  They have also picked up only two points from their last four games. 10. Swansea City (LW-10) Chico Flores scored in the 60th minute to rescue a point for Swansea at home against Hull City.  After falling behind after nine minutes of play, the Swans worked their way back into the game and were rewarded with a goal and a point.  They also welcomed Michu back into the lineup to hopefully add a spark to their offence going forward. 11. Hull City (LW-12) Danny Graham scored in the ninth minute but it wasnt enough as they drew Swansea 1-1.  Graham, a former Swansea man, would enjoy the goal on his return but could not lead his team to the victory.  In the end both teams deserved a point from this match. 12. Aston Villa (LW-11) Ten terrible minutes were enough for Villa to fall 2-0 at the hands of Fulham.  Gabriel Agbonlahor wasted an early chance for Villa who were pretty even against Fulham, but for the stretch that saw them give up two goals and the game. 13. Stoke City (LW-15) Late Substitute Oussama Assaidi fired home a 90th minute winner to help Stoke City stun Chelsea 3-2.  After falling behind in the ninth minute, the Potters battle back to take a 2-1 lead only to see Chelsea pull level once again.  Stoke picked up their first league win against Chelsea since 1975 in a very entertaining contest. 14. West Bromwich Albion (LW-13) While the stats say West Brom should have cruised to victory, Norwich found the net twice as the Baggies fell 2-0.  Stephane Sessegnon and Shane Long were both wasteful with chances to put their team on the board and in front of their home fans, extended a stretch of only one win in their last nine contests. 15. Cardiff City (LW-14) Though they looked good at times, Cardiff was not able to find a marker as they fell 2-0 to Crystal Palace.  Fraizer Campbell almost put the Welsh side ahead  in the opening minutes, but was not able to convert.  Palace would go on to create the chances that led to the difference in the contest. 16. Norwich City (LW-16) Gary Hooper and Leroy Fer were both on target as Norwich knocked off West Brom 2-0 at The Hawthorns.  The Canaries were coming off Luis Suarez masterpiece and showed a good effort to get back into the win column.  John Ruddy picked up the clean sheet for Norwich. 17. West Ham United (LW-17) While the score stayed level for almost the entire first half, West Ham was never a threat in a 4-1 loss to Liverpool.  A Martin Skrtel own goal accounted for their only scoring in a game where they also produced an own goal courtesy of Guy Demel.   Joey OBriens own goal was eventually credited as a second for Luis Suarez. 18. Crystal Palace (LW-19) Tony Pulis led his new Crystal Palace side to a second victory, this time 2-0 over Cardiff City as they continue to fight against relegation.  Cameron Jerome and Marouane Chamakh both scored for Palace, who now find themselves in the relegation zone on goal differential alone. 19. Fulham (LW-20) A Dimitar Berbatov penalty and a Steve Sidwell strike were enough to give Fulham a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.  The two goals, scored in a nine minute span, put the game out of reach for the Cottagers who need to keep collecting these points as they find themselves firmly in the relegation battle. 20. Sunderland (LW-18) Their fifth own goal of the season condemned Sunderland to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham.  Adam Johnson opened the scoring for the Black Cats, who sit at the bottom of the table, but after Paulinho leveled the score, John OShea put the ball past his keeper for what would be the deciding marker. Roger Clemens Jersey .J. Hardy to avoid a three-game sweep after blowing a big early lead. Odour had a leadoff single in the seventh and scored the tiebreaking run with the help of two errors by Hardy as the Rangers went on to beat the Orioles 8-6 on Thursday night. Andrew Benintendi Jersey . Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game on TSN Jets at 6:30pm ct/7:30pm et. The game is also avialable on TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg at 7pm ct. “The shootout, theres nothing wrong with it, I think its an exciting part of the game but its just one small aspect,” said Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman. “Its a skill exhibition. If you can get it back closer to regular hockey and have it decided that way; that would be my preference.” “I dont think its a knock on the shootout, I think more of the managers would like to see it end in overtime,” added Washington Capitals GM George McPhee. Nomar Garciaparra Jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. David Price Jersey .Cameron sustained his third concussion in three seasons last week on a hit by Oakland safety Brandion Ross, who was fined $22,050 by the NFL for the helmet-to-helmet blow.The Toronto Blue Jays will turn to righty Dustin McGowan tonight against Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians. McGowan has won his last two decisions and is 2-1 on the year with a 4.63 ERA. He did not get a decision his last time out, though, despite a decent effort against the Los Angeles Angels that saw him allow two runs in five innings of his teams 4-3 loss. "I got through it," McGowan said. "But I didnt have my slider, so luckily the changeup got me through. It was one of those games where you give it everything you can and see what happens." McGowan has never beaten the Indians, going 0-2 with an 11.05 ERA in four games (3 starts). Cleveland right-hander Kluber lost to the Blue Jays back on April 6. Since then, though, hes been one of the best pitchers in baseball. Kluber looks for another strong start on tonight as the Indians continue a three-game set with the Blue Jays. Since surrendering five runs in 6 2/3 innings in that loss to the Blue Jays, Kluber has gone 2-1 with a 1.91 ERA and 38 strikeouts in four starts since. He defeated the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday, as he limited them to a pair of runs and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings to run his record to 3-3, while lowering his ERA to 3.48. "Ive felt good out there recently, so I was trying to not really change anything," Kluber said. "Just go out there and continue to pound the strike zone and attack guys.dddddddddddd." Cleveland lost for the ninth time in 11 road tries on Tuesday, as Juan Francisco homered and had two RBI to help Toronto to a 5-4 win. Adam Lind also knocked in two and Melky Cabrera added the other RBI for the Blue Jays, who have won two straight. Toronto starter R.A. Dickey (4-3) scattered four hits over six-plus innings, allowing four runs -- two earned -- with six strikeouts. Casey Janssen pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his first save of the season. "The good news is I feel like Im pounding the zone and pitching to contact," said Dickey. "I had a great knuckleball, but I am not making it easy on myself or my team in the later innings." The Blue Jays have homered in 17 of their 19 home games this season. Nick Swisher drove in a pair for Cleveland, which saw starter Justin Masterson (2-2) take the loss after surrendering five runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings. "First time through the order went really well," said Indians manager Terry Francona of Masterson. "He got a couple balls up that they stayed on pretty well. We just couldnt get one big hit." Cleveland had won five of six overall entering this series. Toronto took two of three from the Tribe earlier in the year.
