Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea Slip Out Of World Top 20 Clubs

Published

on

Liverpool and Chelsea have both fallen in football’s global power rankings, while Manchester United has fallen out of the top 20.

The Premier League trio trail leaders Manchester City, who won their fourth English title in five years after another sensational season. Bayern Munich is in second place after winning the Bundesliga title for the tenth time in a row.

The rankings in question are created by the football statistics website FiveThirtyEight, where the Soccer Power Index compares 640 teams from around the world after each match. Each club was assigned a rating between 1 and 100 based on two factors: the previous season’s rating and their market value as calculated.

The standings aren’t good news for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who’ve slipped to third on 90.5, while Thomas Tuchel and co have seen Chelsea plummet to sixth place thanks to their score of 85.7. The Blues are behind Paris Saint-Germain, now led by Christoph Galtier after Maurcio Pochettino’s sacking, and Champions League winners Real Madrid. They’ve bumped up to fourth and fifth respectively.

City’s score of 92.3 makes them top dogs, having made marquee signings in the form of Erling Haaland and Kalvin Phillips this summer to add to Pep Guardiola’s star-studded squad. Bayern, who recently waved goodbye to star striker Robert Lewandowski but have offset his departure with the arrivals of Sadio Mane and Matthijs de Ligt, boast a score of 91.8.

Making up the top 10 are Ajax, Barcelona, Inter Milan and another English side in Tottenham Hotspur, who’re hoping to make the Antonio Conte era in north London a special one. It demonstrates the Premier League’s prowess on the global stage, with no other division boasting as many teams in the top 10. However, Arsenal and United will grimace at the rankings, particularly the latter.

The Red Devils, despite moving up a whopping 10 places thanks to their summer transfer activity and appointment of Erik ten Hag as manager, are humiliating 22nd. Meanwhile, 17th-placed Arsenal have been overtaken by Sporting Lisbon, who’ve jumped up four spots. Among those also in the top 20 are RB Leipzig, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Porto, AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen.

Of course, the rankings mean very little in the grand scheme of things, especially as the new season approaches. United legend Roy Keane has already had his say on the Premier League title race, tipping City to once again edge out Liverpool, last term’s runners-up. “I don’t think they will close the gap. I think they will be a bit better,” the former Red Devils captain told Sky Bet.

Elon Musk accuses Twitter of fraud in countersuit

Published

on

Elon Musk has accused the social media platform, Twitter, of fraudulently holding back information about the company as part of a countersuit.

The countersuit by the billionaire and Tesla CEO alleges that Twitter committed fraud, breach of contract, and violation of a securities law in Texas, where Musk lives.

Musk’s counterclaims were filed confidentially last week and unsealed in a filing late Thursday at the Delaware Chancery Court.

Musk offered to buy Twitter earlier this year, then tried to back out of the deal by claiming the social platform was infested with a larger number of “spam bots” and fake accounts than Twitter had disclosed.

Twitter sued to force him to complete the acquisition. Musk responded by filing his countersuit.

Musk’s attorneys argue in the countersuit that Twitter “misrepresentations or omissions” distorted the company’s value and caused Musk to agree in April to buy it at an inflated price. They said Twitter’s own disclosures revealed that it has 65 million fewer “monetizable daily active users,” who can be shown digital ads, than the 238 million that Twitter claims.

The filing also said most of Twitter’s ads are shown only to a sliver of the company’s user base.

Musk’s team also accused Twitter of making too many major changes in recent months without consulting Musk, including personnel decisions and allegedly disobeying social media restrictions imposed by the government of India, which is Twitter’s third largest market. Musk had pledged to make Twitter a haven for free speech but has also said it must comply with the local laws where it operates.

In an unexpected twist, Twitter filed its response denying Musk’s accusations before Musk’s own counterclaims surfaced.

Twitter called Musk’s reasoning “a story, imagined in an effort to escape a merger agreement that Musk no longer found attractive.” The company, in particular, took issue with Musk’s estimate of fake accounts, saying the analysis relied on a “generic web tool” that designated Musk’s own Twitter account as a likely bot.

“The result is a distortion that Musk is hoping will nonetheless make waves,” Twitter’s response said.

The case is scheduled to go to trial on October 17. The Delaware court handles many high-profile disputes between businesses, such as Twitter, that are incorporated there.
