The impact of coronavirus on football has resulted in clubs having to face a packed calendar with games coming thick and fast this year. Despite this there have been clubs who have impressed in their respective leagues and here, we take a look at the five clubs who have secured the most amount of points in 2021.
1. Manchester City - 39 points in 14 games
Pep Guardiola's side have dominated this season, putting in brilliant performances both domestically and in Europe. The Cityzens had put on a 21-match winning streak, which was only broken recently and they remain one of the favourites to win their maiden Champions League title.
2. Barcelona - 31 points in 11 games
Barcelona might not be having the best of times off the field, but they have surprisingly put on good performances on the pitch despite being criticised for being inconsistent. While they may not be the favourites to win titles this season, Ronald Koeman has definitely improved them as a side.
3. Inter Milan - 29 points in 12 games
Inter Milan are on course to win their first Serie A title in almost a decade with Antonio Conte's side currently on top of the league table and putting on good performances. The club will no doubt look to end Juventus' stranglehold in the league.
4. AS Monaco - 28 points in 11 games
Monaco are looking like their swashbuckling side of old, with the club currently placed fourth in the Ligue 1 table and will no doubt look to challenge the other heavyweights for the title. Niko Kovac has no doubt been a calming influence on the side ever since he took over the managerial reigns in July 2020.
5. Juventus - 28 points in 12 games
Juventus are another club that have not lived up to their high expectations this season, with Andrea Pirlo experiencing a tough introduction to life as a manager. Following their exit in the last-16 of the Champions League, he will look to ensure that he can continue the Bianconeri's dominance in Italy.
