Pep Guardiola claims six teams like Manchester United near Liverpool away


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is predicting that Liverpool will face a challenge just as much as the other six teams, including its Manchester City outfit next season.The Reds are hoping to coax their 2019/20 title triumph over the next two games, having slipped to Goodison Park on Sunday night.

And as soon as Jurgen Klopp’s men are mathematically confirmed as champions, the focus will shift to the next season and keep the title.

Manchester City are likely to be the most significant threat to Liverpool from the crown, having beaten the league last season by a single point.

Guardiola said, “I hope we can learn from our start to the season.

“After winning the Community Shield against Liverpool, we lost points perhaps that we did not expect. But I don’t know if this will happen.

“I think every season the opponents get stronger. Liverpool will remain the strong team they are, we see how Chelsea are investing in this transfer market.

“We’ve seen it in the last period, how many Man United have taken a step forward.

“Tottenham is going to recover a lot of injured players, using Fils, Harry Kane and other players and with an experienced manager like [Jose] Mourinho they are always going to be strong.

“Arsenal with more time with Mikel [Arteta] is going to happen and Leicester you know.

“Each season the teams are getting stronger and it will be more difficult.

“When we picked up the title, we were the first in 10 years so you know how hard it is to do it but at the same time it’s next season and I’m not thinking too much about it. ”

Liverpool may still have wrapped up the Premier League title before heading to Etihad Stadium a week Thursday, depending on the results between now and then.

It would be symbolic of how many Reds to come, if they were to be given an honor guard by the team that beat just one point from the last season with seven games left to play.
