Last weekend Liverpool won their 8th FA cup after beating Chelsea in the penalty shootouts.The Merseyside club is eyeing for a historic quadruple this season as they head into the final game week 38 just one point behind reigning champions Manchester City.If City lose to Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa then Liverpool will win their 20th premier league title after ending their 30 years wait for the premier league title in 2020.
Here are the top 5 most successful clubs in England.
The Citizens have been very successful since their takeover in 2007 by billionaire Sheikh Mansour.The billionaire has invested a lot of money in the club which has translated into the club's recent success.In total they have won 28 trophies.They have also won 5 premier league titles in a decade and are on course to win their 4th title in 5 seasons.
The Blues' success has also come since their takeover by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich in 2002 although he is finalizing the sale of the club due to recent sanctions by the UK government.Chelsea has won 34 trophies in total including two champions league trophies.
The Gunners have been having some tough times recently but still remain clear of Chelsea with a margin of 14 trophies as they have won 48 trophies in total.They have just won two premier league titles since the turn of the century.They also have not won a single European trophy.
The red devils have also been struggling since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.This has allowed Liverpool to become the most successful club in England.The club has not won the premier league in 8 years but remain the best in the league with 20 league titles won including 13 won by their Scottish manager Ferguson.They have 66 trophies in total.
By winning the FA Cup against Chelsea the Reds became the most successful club in England with 67 trophies.They can be 3 trophies ahead of United if they win the premier league title and the champions league final against Real Madrid.That would also make them the first club to ever win a quadruple in a single season.
