Manchester United lead the way in terms of domestic trophies, winning the top English league on 20 occasions in their history. However, Liverpool are only two behind on 18.

They’ve also won more FA Cups than Liverpool, with 12 compared to seven, however Arsenal actually lead all the teams in this category with 13.

Liverpool come out on top more often in the League Cup though, with eight wins to their name, compared to United’s five. They’ve also got a Sheriff of London Charity Shield, which only ran until 1907, and the one-off Football League Super Cup to their name.

When it comes to the FA Community Shield, formerly known as the Charity Shield, Manchester United are currently runaway leaders, with a huge 21 wins contributing to their overall total of 66 trophies. Interestingly, if you did not include this trophy then Liverpool would be ahead of United by one.

Manchester United have won the Community Shield on 21 occasions, far more than the rest

But European competition is where Liverpool really shine, winning more of the top trophies than any other English club.

They’ve got 13 overall, with six Champions Leagues, three Europa Leagues, and four UEFA Super Cups.

Meanwhile, United have three Champions League trophies, one Europa League, and one Super Cup. 

Arsenal are next on the list of total trophies earned by an English club, but a long way back with 46. 

They’ve done well domestically, with 13 league wins, two League Cups, and 15 Community Shields added onto their 13 FA Cups, but they falter in European competition.

They’ve never won either of the big competitions, but they did win a UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

Arsenal have won the league 13 times, and have 13 FA Cups along with 15 Community Shields

Chelsea have a total of 31 trophies, including six in Europe and eight FA Cup wins

Next up on the list are Chelsea, who have a total of 31 trophies. Their Europa League win this year was their sixth European honour, with a Champions League, a Super Cup, a second Europa League, and a couple of Cup Winners’ Cups to their name. 

They also have 25 domestic trophies: 6 league wins, eight FA Cups, five League Cups, four Community Shields, as well as two Full Members’ Cups, which was discontinued in 1992.

Fifth are Spurs, with 26 total trophies. They’ve won three European trophies and 23 domestically, albeit only with two league wins.

Aston Villa and Manchester City are both level on 25, although it seems likely City will pull ahead of that total sooner rather than later.  

Manchester City are level with Aston Villa with 25 trophies, but expect them to win more soon
