Football was struck by the news of the proposed European Super League back in 2021 which went on to dominate headlines for two highly emotional weeks for fans.
Liverpool were one of the six Premier League clubs said to have agreed to participate in such an ordeal – alongside Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester City and United.
Whilst the powers that be came to reject the league, it still gave the Football world an insurmountable scare.
Recently released on social media is an image of a league table consisting of all the teams who were said to be involved with the super league – sorted by points per game; a graphic which is sure to get people talking.
Premier League has now spent over €1 BILLION this summer on transfers
La Liga: €237.9 million 🤣
5 🇪🇸 teams not spent a penny. 7 have spent < €5m
This is how broken football system & why Juventus & others will break away to a European Super League soon https://t.co/gkEXTMi66a

Where did Liverpool rank?
According to a table put together by Sports Analysis (image below), the Reds finished second in the 20-team league table – a point and 0.2 points per game behind the Premier League champions Manchester City.
The Reds finished comfortably higher than Champions League winners Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and PSG thanks to their amazing PL campaign.
They also boasted the highest xG of 89.2 goals and finished third behind City and Munich for total goals scored.
Chelsea finished below the likes of Inter Milan, Napoli and Dortmund due to their inconsistent league form over the course of the season. North London clubs Tottenham and Arsenal finished 14th and 19th respectively, with only Rennes finishing lower than the Gunners.
The fantasy list displayed here only shows individual league performances as opposed to what the super league would have been with the team all playing each other.
Fans will always push against the idea of the Super League but this graphic does display how Manchester City and Liverpool are two of the most dominating forces in European football.
