And after Tuesday night's dominant display against Man United at Anfield, Liverpool went above defending champions Manchester City in the Global Club Soccer Rankings. No team has ever managed to win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup during the same season in English football history.

Manchester United, meanwhile, feature in the top 25 best football teams in the world right now but their fall from grace in recent years is damning.

Following their humiliating defeat to Liverpool in the league, Ralf Rangnick's side are 21st in the Global Club Soccer Rankings, with the likes of Bayer Leverkusen, RB Salzburg, Spurs and Ajax recording a higher SPI rating.

Liverpool Ranked Best Team In The World

The Merseyside club are also currently the favourites with bookmakers to win the Champions League, with their next assignment in that competition being a two-legged semi-final meeting with underdogs Villarreal.

Jurgen Klopp’s men already have the League Cup in the bag having defeated Chelsea to lift that trophy back in late February. The two sides will meet again at Wembley on May 14 to decide the winner of the 2022 FA Cup.

Not only, however, are Liverpool in a strong position to land the quadruple, but their form on the pitch at present suggests that they will be a tough opponent for any team in the world to overcome.

Unbeaten in the Premier League in 2022, the club hasn’t tasted defeat in any competition for nine games – and their superstar squad seems to be getting better with each passing week.

Overall, few could credibly argue that Liverpool are not one of the best sides on the planet right now.

Man United Are 'Six Years Behind' Liverpool

Manchester United's dreadful performance against Liverpool led to Ralf Rangnick claiming they were in the same position as their rivals six years ago.

United were nothing short of dreadful on Tuesday night, as Jurgen Klopp's team went to the top of the Premier League table in a 4-0 hammering.

Rangnick's time as interim manager only has eight games to run, as they try desperately to finish fourth in the Premier League, and the German didn't hold back in his assessment of the team after the match, explaining they're in a similar position their rivals were in when Jurgen Klopp took over in 2016.

Rangnick went on to point out the players who Klopp didn't even call on to be in the squad for the game, compared to his own side, revealing the issue with recruitment United have had in recent years.
