​Sky Sports Names 12 Greatest English Clubs Of All Time And Awards Them An Overall Score

Bob Paisley's Liverpool side have narrowly beaten Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United team to be named the best English side of all time.

Sky Sports' Monday Night Football ranked the top 12 English sides and awarded each of the teams points based on the amount of silverware they won.

And legendary former manager Paisley and his Liverpool squad, from 1975-76 to 1977-78, were awarded 23 points as they came out on top.

During that period, the Reds won three First Division titles, captured the UEFA Cup and won two back-to-back European Cups.

Ferguson had one of his former United sides, which was from 2006-07 to 2008-09, fall short by two points.

The 78-year-old legendary Scot won an incredible three consecutive Premier League titles during that period and also captured his second Champions League trophy with the club.

Other European titles, which included the UEFA/Cup Winners' Cup, secured three points.

Domestic cups like the FA Cup and the League Cup are worth two and one respectively, while other wins like the Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup are worth one point.
