Manchester City are currently the highest ranked English side on UEFA’s club coefficients list, with a total of 99 points, which is accumulated over the period of five seasons in European competitions.
City are ahead of Arsenal as the number one English club, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea considerably behind and outside of the top ten.
In the grand scheme of things, City are still short of the European elite and rank eighth in Europe, behind Champions League holders Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and even the consistent Sevilla.
City’s own consistency in Europe has led to them becoming a presence in the top ten however, which is helpful for their placement in Champions League seedings if they don’t win the Premier League (champions from the biggest leagues automatically go into Pot 1).

1. Real Madrid – 146.000
