Manchester City match 12-year Manchester United record

Manchester City have once again matched a Manchester United record.

Manchester City saw off Inter Milan in the final of the Champions League on Saturday to clinch their first-ever Champions League trophy.

After doing so, the Sky Blues have matched Manchester United in the record books.

Manchester City have jumped to the top of UEFA’s coefficient rankings – becoming the first English side to do so since Manchester United in 2011.

The system counts up performances over the past five seasons to work out who has been performing the best in Europe. City made the final two years ago, losing to Chelsea, the semi-finals last year and then claimed the trophy, which has allowed their points to stack up.

Despite Chelsea and Liverpool winning the tournament since 2011, it is United who were the last Premier League side to top the coefficients. They won the tournament in 2008 before making the final in 2009 and 2011, losing to Barcelona both times, but their accumulation of points saw them sit top.

The coefficient rankings help determine the pots for the Champions League draw, which will take place later this year.
