Opta ranks best football clubs in the world: Man Utd 22nd, Chelsea 30th

Opta’s list of the best football clubs in the world consists of more than 13,000 entries, ranking well known and obscure teams in the same list. The statistics company uses a complex algorithm to determine the scores for clubs, and updates them every day from Monday through Friday. 

As per the latest update, Manchester City are at the top of the table, with the Citizens trying to defend their treble. They are currently third in the Premier League table, but have a concrete chance at retaining their title. Moreover, they are also one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season, a title they claimed for the first time last summer.
