UEFA have ranked Arsenal ahead of Liverpool after they updated their co-efficient table to take into account this season’s European competitions.
Arsenal and Liverpool both remain in ninth and 11th place respectively after their cup final appearances this season. UEFA have given Europa League losers Arsenal 26 points and Champions League winners Liverpool 29 which has closed the gap between the two sides somewhat but still sees Arsenal ahead of Liverpool on 101 points to their 91.
Real Madrid top the table with 146 followed by Barcelona on 138, Bayern Munich on 128 and Atletico Madrid on 127.
The next English side is Manchester City in sixth place on 106 while Manchester United, remarkably, are in 18th place on 78 having been leapfrogged by Tottenham this season who collected 26 points.
Chelsea are 12th on 87.
Arsenal’s points total of 26 sees them come in fifth for the season, one place above Spurs who made the Champions League final. But they also got 26 so I’m assuming this is being done alphabetically.
Barcelona topped the 18/19 chart with 30 followed by Chelsea, also on 30, then Liverpool (29), and Ajax (27).
Manchester City are seventh with 25 and their Manchester rivals are in 16th place on 19.
