Liverpool fans have hit out at Manchester City, after claims that Pep Guardiola will spend £100 million in the January transfer window in an attempt to close the gap at the top of the Premier League table.
Liverpool won 3-1 against City at the weekend, to strike a major blow in the title race.
Pep Guardiola’s side are now nine points behind a Liverpool side, who are yet to lose a game in English football this term.
Overhauling the points difference will be a hugely difficult challenge for City, even with all the talent that they have in their squad.
But the Mail claim that City have not given up on catching Liverpool, and they will invest heavily in January.
And the transfer rumours have aggravated Liverpool fans, who feel that City are simply trying to spend their way to success.
You gonna spend £100 mil on back ups for your back ups then another £100mil for back ups for the back up back ups, but you will still cry and say you was plagued with injurys— Elliot (@Elliot_B1807) November 12, 2019
Spending another £1B to be left heartbroken my Mo Salah again.. wonderful— OG (@IceSchmaltz) November 11, 2019
Pep Guardiola= can't coach, must spend. It's why we never see Foden. At Liverpool if we had Foden, we would never have bought Keita and he'd probably start most weeks. Fraudiola is just a cheque book manager.— Israel (@cjcolesy) November 12, 2019

To catch up with a team that has not spent a penny this season and averages net spend less than 100m under Jurgen klopp?— Jasmeet (@jas_lfc) November 12, 2019
This is exactly why people don’t respect whatever achievement they have— TopKop (@TopKopyc) November 12, 2019
Liverpool did have a lead in the Premier League last term, only for City to catch them, but they have never been in such a commanding position as they are now.
Even if City do spend big in January it could be too little too late for Guardiola’s side, as making up a nine point gap looks unlikely at this stage.
