We take into account both domestic and European performances, plus the relative difficulty of each team's league, to find out who is the best team in Europe.

Alex Ferguson's side scored two domestic victories last week to help them edge towards the successful retention of their Premier League crown and, perhaps more importantly, the inaugural European Power Rankings gong.

United currently lead second-placed Barcelona by just under two points - a hefty defecit in Power Rankings terms - after Arsenal's defeat to Chelsea saw them slip into third.

That win for Chelsea, coupled with a disastrous week for Internazionale which saw them pick up just a point from two games, means the Blues leapfrog the Nerazzurri into fifth.

Elsewhere, Bayern and Real Madrid swap positions down in 12th and 13th respectively while Lyon's win over Paris St Germain bumps them up to 17th.

EUROPEAN POWER RANKINGS

1 (1) Manchester United - 24.27

2 (3) Barcelona - 22.50

3 (2) Arsenal - 22.31

4 (4) Roma - 21.29

5 (6) Chelsea - 20.97

6 (5) Internazionale - 20.71

7 (7) Liverpool - 20.52

8 (9) Porto - 19.90

9 (8) Sevilla - 19.76

10 (10) Everton - 19.19

11 (11) Fenerbahce - 18.89

12 (13) Bayern - 17.94

13 (12) Real Madrid - 17.56

14 (14) Hamburg - 17.48

15 (15) Milan - 16.92

16 (16) Olympiacos - 16.88

17 (18) Lyon - 16.48

18 (17) Fiorentina - 16.43

19 (19) Werder Bremen - 16.17

20 (20) Rangers - 16.08

Hmm I am always sceptical of such "leagues". For example how can arsenal be ahead of Chelski. Chelski are ahead in the EPL, both are still in the CL and the only other tiebreaker can be the Carling Cup and Chelski got to the final ! Even if its slanted towards current form, say, then Arsenal can hardly be ahead of them on that basis either! :S

We are on top and that's the most important... I certainly hope that it stays this way... I think we should go for the CL... With our form we should really go for it...

HOW IT WORKS

Scores are based on points per game in domestic league and European games.

Domesticpoints per game are multiplied by the league coefficient - either 4,4.5 or 5 - with teams in stronger leagues getting more credit.

ChampionsLeague (or Super Cup) victories are counted from the third qualifyinground onward as three points for a win and multiplied by a coefficientof 5.

UEFA Cup victories are counted from the first round as three points for a win and multiplied by a coefficient of 4.

Domesticand European totals are then added together. If a side has played inboth Champions League and UEFA Cup, its European total is an average ofthe two scores.

League coefficients:

England, Spain, Italy = 5

Germany, Portugal, France = 4.5

Others = 4

Example: Manchester United

73 points from 31 Premier League games = 2.35 points per game.

Multiplied by league coefficient of five - 2.35 x 5 = 11.77

20 points from 8 Champions League games (including qualifying) = 2.50 points per game.

Multiplied by Champions League coefficient of five - 12.50

Total score = 11.77 + 12.50 = 24.27
