Liverpool have been calculated as being England’s biggest club, narrowly ahead of Manchester United.

These debates have raged on and on for decades now and will no doubt always continue, with some people unlikely to be convinced to change their minds, whatever the argument.

Ten points are given for winning the European Cup, of which Liverpool have six to their name, compared to United’s three.

Arsenal are third, followed by Chelsea, while Aston Villa remain ahead of Manchester City due to their history, even if in the modern era there’s no doubt the two clubs are worlds apart.
