It was an interesting week of football to say the least. We have a few shake-ups in rankings as Man City is starting to crack and Inter Milan are on fire. The winter transfer winter has been quiet a little too quiet, so look for something big to happen in coming the days. With now only a half of season remaining the race for the top of the table in most domestic leagues should be a good one.

Just Missed: PSG, Tottenham,  Zenit St Petersburg, FC Basel, Napoli

10. Chelsea
Chelsea continue to hold onto the final spot in the rankings, again there is a lot of pressure coming from PSG and Tottenham. The Blues would like to get to their Feb 5th showdown against United riding a big winning streak. Adding Gary Cahill will help sure-up their defense. (10-5)


9. Inter Milan
A big derby win has Inter’s win streak at 6 games in a row. Ranieri is working wonders with Inter and if they can go out an acquire a big name like say, Carlos Tevez then all bets are off. (nr)


Club Football Rankings8. Benfica
Benfica are really good, don’t be fooled, their aspirations are sky high for this campaign. (8-8)


7. AC Milan
Milan had 67% of the possession, had 16 shots and 10 corners against Inter. The only thing missing was a goal, that’s why Milan fans should worry too much.  However another body in the midfield could be a helpful addition during the transfer window. (6-14)
