Barcelona could become the next team to join this list due to their participation in this season’s Europa League, a competition the club has not competed in for two decades.
The only other English club in the list, Manchester United, completed the set when they won the Europa League under Jose Mourinho in the 2016/17 season, a feat which also saw them qualify for the Champions League that season despite a Premier League finish of sixth place.

Chelsea were able to compete in this season’s competition after winning the Champions League against Manchester City last season, a game where Havertz also got the winner.
In fact, Havertz is the first player to score the winner of the Champions League final and the subsequent winner in Club World Cup final since Lionel Messi in 2011. So Havertz can count himself among some esteemed company.
