Sir Alex Ferguson is calling it quits, and without him the Premier League won't be the same. But it will keep going, and so will the B/R English Premier League Power Poll.
Chelsea and Tottenham played the big match this week in a Wednesday night showdown. How did their result affect our rankings?
Keep reading to find out.
Nine B/R personalities ranked all 20 Premier League clubs. A first-place vote counted as 20 points, a second-place vote as 19—and so on.
In each slide, "Points" refers to the number of points accumulated by each team via the voters. "Previous" refers to each team's ranking in the previous edition of our poll.

Result: Lost 1-0 home to Arsenal
Fixtures: Home to Newcastle, Sunday; at Liverpool, May 19
QPR have gone seven matches without winning. Not that it matters. Rangers are officially relegated.
Sean: 'Arry will be doing plenty of wheelin' and dealin' (NSFW), all right: selling all his lofty-waged players back to the Premier League.
Result: Lost 2-1 home to Aston Villa
Fixtures: Home to West Brom, Sunday; at Man City, May 19
Norwich have lost three of four and have won just twice in their last 19 matches. Relegation is still very much possible.
Result: Won 4-2 at Fulham
Fixtures: Home to Man City, Tuesday; at West Ham, May 19
Oh, so now Reading decide to win. That victory at Fulham broke Reading's 10-game winless run in league play.
Too bad it came after the Royals were officially doomed to relegation.
Results: Won 3-2 at West Brom; lost 3-2 home to Swansea
Fixtures: At Arsenal, Tuesday; home to Aston Villa, May 19
Wigan showed plenty of heart and attacking verve in Tuesday's loss to Swansea. Unfortunately, they didn't also show much defending talent.
Dan: Maybe Roberto Martinez will be in the Premier League no matter what this year.
Result: Drew 0-0 at West Ham
Fixtures: At QPR, Sunday; home to Arsenal, May 19
With two matches left, Newcastle have a three-point cushion from the relegation zone. Will it be enough?
Sean: Part of me wants to see them relegated just out of the sheer bizarreness of it.
Dan: I have a feeling, and it's not a good one.
Previous: 13 (tie)
Result: Lost 4-2 home to Reading
Fixtures: Home to Liverpool, Sunday; at Swansea, May 19
Fulham have lost five of six and are only five points above the relegation zone. Fortunately, though, only two matches remain.
Dan: Goal differential is their best friend right now. That, and Wigan's inability to close at home.
Result: Drew 1-1 home to Stoke
Fixtures: Home to Southampton, Sunday; at Spurs, May 19
Sunderland are one of three teams—Newcastle and Norwich are the others—grouped three points above the final relegation spot. Of the three, the Black Cats have the best goal differential of negative-12.
Result: Lost 1-0 at Spurs
Fixtures: At Sunderland, Sunday; home to Stoke, May 19
Southampton have been streaky lately. After a run of three wins, they drew two in a row. Most recently, they've lost two straight.
Results: Lost 3-2 home to Wigan; lost 1-0 at Man City
Fixtures: At Norwich, Sunday; home to Man United, May 19
West Brom have drawn six matches this season, second-fewest in the league (Manchester United has four).
Result: Drew 1-1 at Sunderland
Fixtures: Home to Spurs, Sunday; at Southampton, May 19
Stoke (11th place) have won only nine matches this season, tied for the fourth-fewest in the league.
Previous: 9 (tie)
Result: Drew 0-0 home to Newcastle
Fixtures: At Everton, Sunday; home to Reading, May 19
Sam Allardyce's team assured itself early of another season in the Premier League. Next season will the Hammers be able to build on their solid return to the top flight?
Previous: 13 (tie)
Results: Drew 0-0 home to Man City; won 3-2 at Wigan
Fixtures: At Man United, Sunday; home to Fulham, May 19

Previous: 9 (tie)
Result: Won 2-1 at Norwich
Fixtures: Home to Chelsea, Saturday; at Wigan, May 19
Aston Villa won again at the weekend, all but ruling out relegation. Over the past few months, the Villans have been perhaps the most entertaining team in the Premier League.
Dan: Congrats to Brad Guzan for being their best player.
Result: Drew 0-0 home to Everton
Fixtures: At Fulham, Sunday; home to QPR, May 19
Liverpool are unbeaten in six matches, but only two of those six have been wins.
Result: Drew 0-0 at Liverpool
Fixtures: Home to West Ham, Sunday; at Chelsea, May 19
Everton lead Liverpool by five points with two matches left, so it looks like the Toffees will finish above their city rivals for the second straight season.
Dan: It's been nice knowing you, Mr. Moyes (via CNN). Can you take Johnny Heitinga with you?
Results: Won 1-0 home to Southampton; drew 2-2 at Chelsea
Fixtures: At Stoke, Sunday; home to Sunderland, May 19
How many times can Gareth Bale bail Tottenham out? They need him a couple more times.
Dan: A vital point at Stamford Bridge, but they could have used three for sure.
Sean: Two late-ditch goals kept their top-four hopes alive—can they (OK, Bale) keep it up?
Result: Won 1-0 at QPR
Fixtures: Home to Wigan, Tuesday; at Newcastle, May 19
With both Wigan and Newcastle still in the relegation scrap, Arsenal's run-in might be tougher than first anticipated.
Sean: Easy run-in. Best form of the season. Two wins and they're in. Still cannot handle—someone wake me up when it's over.
Dan: We're a point away from being on full-blown Wenger Watch.
Result: Lost 1-0 home to Chelsea
Fixtures: Home to Swansea, Sunday; at West Brom, May 19
With Sir Alex Ferguson announcing his retirement on Wednesday, does anyone think Swansea have a chance to win on Sunday in Ferguson's final home match?
Anyway, falling to third here won't hurt. The Red Devils are still champions.
Sean: Respect to Sir Alex, the man is a legend. That said, I'm ecstatic that my Gunners won't have to face a United squad whose strings are being pulled by SAF.
Results: Drew 0-0 at Swansea; won 1-0 home to West Brom
Fixtures: At Reading, Tuesday; home to Norwich, May 19
Is it just us, or has it been an improbably quiet campaign for Manchester City? Something big might be in the works this summer for the mega-money club.
Results: Won 1-0 at Man United; drew 2-2 home to Spurs
Fixtures: At Aston Villa, Saturday; home to Everton, May 19
Chelsea jumped over both Manchester clubs to claim this week's top spot. Is it deserved?
Is Jose Mourinho set for a Stamford Bridge return? Before we find out, Rafa will have his chance to win some silverware in the Europa League final.
Sean: On paper, this team should not be scrapping for the top four. Yet, there they are.
