Carlo Ancelotti’s side are in imperious form at the moment and wins over Birmingham and over the last seven days were enough to usurp Bordeaux at the summit of our list of Europe’s finest.

With the likes of and only just returning from the African Cup of Nations, and with still to return from injury, the Blues have certainly laid down the gauntlet as the team to beat in the second half of the season.

Elsewhere, a poor for in which they dropped points against before going down to a heavy defeat to means Arsene Wenger’s side slip two places to seventh in our rankings.

That magnificent win for United at the Emirates sees the Premier League champions move up from sixth to fifth, while also crept up one place after beating Bolton and despite dropping points against Wolves in midweek.

French champions Bordeaux, meanwhile, slip off the top after being held to a surprise goalless draw at home to Ligue 1’s second-bottom club Boulogne-sur-Mer.
