Liverpool move top of Euro Club rankings for first time in history

Okay so that's probably a little bit OTT, considering that the Euro Club Index has only been in existence since 2007 but it's no mean feat overtaking Man City and Barcelona.


Liverpool had been making steady progress under Jurgen Klopp until that Champions League run two seasons ago and we've not looked back since.


According the Index website, the rankings take into account all matches played by a club across all competitions they're in, including leagues, European matches and domestic cups. Which we can all agree is a more realistic approach to take.


But that only makes the Reds' achievement in leading the table all the more impressive. It just goes to show what remarkable form we've been in since the start of last season as well.



As you can see from the image above, Liverpool are now ahead of Man City and Barcelona by 15 and 52 points respectively, whilst the only other English sides in the top 10 - Chelsea and Arsenal are significantly behind the men in Red.


Despite reaching last season's Champions League final Spurs are only able to rank in at 13th, although the club's current form has probably played some part in that as well.


There are some questions raised about the method of calculating these rankings though, when you consider that Man Utd some how rank in at 11th, despite the atrocious few seasons they're been having.


For now though, we'll take it, as the boys are at the top of another table and there's absolutely nothing our rivals can do about it but continue to fume.
