Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is in awe of Jurgen Klopp’s team – as Liverpool comes very close to winning the Premier League title.
“This team, what they have done in the last two seasons, especially the last one, was incredible,” Guardiola told his pre-match press conference.
“I have said many times what happens to the champions of the Premier League when they start to drop points and they cannot get the first (place). What happens with those teams? They fall down, they drop – and we wouldn’t.
“So Liverpool obviously will be champions of the Premier League, but they would be champions in Spain, champions in Italy, champions in Germany. They would be champions everywhere after 23 games, 22 victories, 1 draw.
“In the recent past when Chelsea won the league, the next season, they didn’t qualify for the Champions League, Leicester the same and Chelsea again the same. When we won the league we repeated the league.
“In Spain, with the points we have we would be there, one or two points behind the leader, in Germany we would be there, one or two points behind the leader, in Italy as well.”
“But Liverpool are just fantastic, phenomenal, overwhelming. So we have to accept it and learn from that.”
It looks like Liverpool is highly likely to win this year’s Premier League title and Pep knows that too.
