Best Club Of The Decade: Barcelona, Chelsea Named

Chelsea have been named the Premier League team of the decade.  

The International Federation of Football History & Statistics have been crunching the numbers as the 2011-2020 decade came to an end.

Barcelona came out in top as their best club of the decade.  

But in England, it was Chelsea that reigned supreme.

Chelsea won the FA Cup that same season, as well as in 2018, while they picked up a solitary League Cup in 2015.

Second on the list came Manchester City, who won four Premier League titles.

Manchester United had a quiet decade by their standards, but still grabbed two league titles towards the beginning, when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.

Arsenal pipped Spurs despite having not finished in the top four since 2016.  

Tottenham did come in at fifth, surprisingly ahead of Liverpool – despite Jurgen Klopp's Reds having won the league last season.
