UEFA have released their latest five-year club rankings, and Tottenham’s coefficient rating has placed them just ahead of Arsenal in the leaderboard. 

Each club’s coefficient value is calculated using their performances in respective UEFA competitions over the last five seasons. 

The latest rankings have placed Tottenham in 13th, just one spot and one coefficient point above bitter North London rivals Arsenal. 

UEFA’s algorithm has revealed that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side boast a total of 81 coefficient points, slightly pipping the Gunners’ tally of 80. 

In the past handful of seasons, Spurs have bounced around all three UEFA competitions and currently find themselves slogging it out in the Europa Conference League, while Arsenal have missed out on European football altogether for the first time in 25 years. 

Spurs can add to their current total by qualifying for the next stage of the competition, but will have to improve their form significantly, with their latest outing ending in a 1-0 defeat to Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem. 

Meanwhile, the rankings place Bayern Munich as Europe’s top club, followed closely by Premier League trio Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea who all occupy second, third and fourth place respectively.

Spurs Web Opinion 

The last five years have been very mixed for Spurs in terms of their participation in European competitions, and their ranking right now just about sums up how they have been doing. They can boost their points if they qualify for next season’s Champions League or Europa League, but they both seem a bit of a stretch currently.
