Welcome to our weekly CHIP update after Match Day 24! If you are not up to date with the Comin Home Index of Power or need an introduction to it before going ahead with this week’s update, you can always check our introduction by following this link. Other than that, here’s our most recent update after the last slate of games took place!
Things were twisting and fans were shouting on MD 24. This was one of the wilder sets of match-day outcomes of the season.
Fulham went on the road to the AMEX to defeat seventh-placed Brighton only to be outdone by Liverpool having come to our ‘Cathedral on the Hill’ to leave victorious over our beloved Magpies, now the fifth team on the EPL table. These are above par as two of the better wins by any team this season.
It was ‘A Hard Days Night’ further down the table as there were two of the worst power losses of the year. The Wolves' loss at Molineux versus Bournemouth, the 16th-ranked team, was poor but still not as bad as Chelsea’s loss at Stamford Bridge to bottom dwellers Southampton. There is no worse power loss possible than having the last-place team visit and leave with all three EPL points.
‘Help!’ cried the Wolves as they slipped back into the bottom three on the CHIP.
Everton’s win at home against second-bottom Leeds did not accrue them many CHIP points and The Saints were so far off the pace, their win did not change the rankings. The Toffees remain in 19th and Southampton in 20th on the CHIP.
Hey, Jude! If you have any Beatles songs that you think can tell a story of the week or season, put them in the comments section below... today... so tomorrow it will have been done Yesterday.
Here are the full CHIP ranks through MD24.
