According to predictors FiveThirtyEight, Tottenham Hotspur are currently performing as one of the top ten global football clubs. 

Spurs are named in ninth place, just one position behind La Liga giants FC Barcelona. London rivals Chelsea are in fourth spot, while Arsenal find themselves in 16th position.

The list is created by a supercomputer that considers the overall strength of a team as well as giving them both an attacking and defensive rating (FiveThirtyEight).

After pipping North London rivals Arsenal to a spot in next season’s Champions League (Football.London), Antonio Conte’s side unsurprisingly find themselves in an elevated position.

The quality of the Premier League at this time is reflected through the rankings, with Manchester City and Liverpool occupying the number one and number two spots respectively.

Perhaps unsurprisingly after their poor season, there is no place in the top 20 for Manchester United. However, Brighton find themselves in 18th spot, after Graham Potter guided them to a ninth-placed finish.

The full rankings were as followed:

  1. Man City
  2. Liverpool
  3. Bayern Munich
  4. Chelsea
  5. PSG
  6. Real Madrid
  7. Ajax
  8. Barcelona
  9. Tottenham
  10. Inter Milan
  11. RB Leipzig
  12. Porto
  13. RB Salzburg
  14. Dortmund
  15. Atletico Madrid
  16. Arsenal
  17. Villarreal
  18. Brighton
  19. AC Milan
  20. Sporting

It is always nice to see Spurs finish above Arsenal in a table format so no complaints about the supercomputer from me.

Hopefully, Spurs can now press on and capture that ever-illusive silverware to cement themselves as a regular big-hitter in European football. One thing is for certain, Conte is the man to project our team to this level.
