Man City manager, Pep Guardiola, has lavished the praise on Liverpool and conceded they will win the Premier League title this season.
The Reds are still undefeated in the Premier League and on course to go the entire campaign unbeaten.
Jurgen Klopp’s men sit a mammoth 16 points above City at the top of the pile. Furthermore, they have a game in hand on Guardiola’s men.
And speaking after seeing his Man City side beat Fulham 4-0 in the FA Cup today, Guardiola insisted that Liverpool would win any league in the world on current form.
“Liverpool obviously will be champions of the Premier League, but they would be champions in Spain, champions in Italy, champions in Germany,’ Guardiola said. (Daily Mail)
‘They would be champions everywhere after 23 games, 22 victories, one draw.”
The Spaniard saw his City side pip the Reds by a single point last season after a mouth-watering title race.
However, Liverpool have been unstoppable this season and have only dropped points against Manchester United.
Guardiola, too, went on to say his team could learn from the Reds, calling them ‘phenomenal’.
“Liverpool are just fantastic, phenomenal, overwhelming. So we have to accept it and learn from that,” he added.
Praise of the highest order – TBR View
Guardiola is a sensible man who knows his football better than most. He’s been left, then, with no option but to accept that this Liverpool team are better than his City side.
However, some managers don’t always behave with the class and dignity they should. That’s not a problem for Guardiola, though, who has praised Liverpool all season.
This is the icing on the cake for the Reds and represents the respect they’ve earned from Pep and his team.
Guardiola is right, too. There isn’t a league in world football at the moment that Liverpool wouldn’t challenge for the title in. They’ve probably win it as well, such is their dominance.
