Champions League - European Power Rankings
There is no change at the top of the Power Rankings this week as Liverpool continue to set the early season pace across Europe.
We take into account both domestic and Champions League performances, plus the relative difficulty of each team's league, to find out who is the best team in Europe.
With no European fixtures since the last update, the Reds retain their top spot thanks to a Fernando Torres brace and Dirk Kuyt's last gasp winner against Manchester City, while Chelsea's destruction of Aston Villa sees them jump a place to sixth.
Manchester United finally seem to be hitting some kind of form, and the European champions' latest win - a 2-0 victory against Blackburn - sees them edge up into 10th, just behind Arsenal, who only managed a draw against Sunderland and drop a place.
A posse of Spanish clubs are still hanging on to Liverpool's coattails, with Barcelona moving up to joint second alongside Real Madrid and Villarreal grabbing fourth ahead of Atletico Madrid.
But it was a bad weekend for Juventus and Roma; both clubs lost in Serie A, although the capital club managed to hold on to 18th position.
And finally, Bundesliga side Werder Bremen's 4-1 defeat to Stuttgart sees them drop out of the top 20 with Shakhtar Donetsk taking their place in our exclusive club thanks to a 3-0 away win.
