Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed that Liverpool will be stronger next season, so he simply cannot take anything for granted on Five.
Liverpool have trailed City by some stretch this season, with Guardiola’s side dominating the league.
There has been some talk that City could be uncatchable in the next few years, particularly if they invest this summer.
But Guardiola believes that Liverpool – and others – will give his side fierce competition next term.
“I think in England talk about dynasty is a big mistake,” he said, ahead of City’s Champions League final on Saturday.
“I remember when Liverpool destroyed last season the Premier League, everyone said it’s a dynasty.
“When we won 100 points I didn’t say now it’s a dynasty for Man City.
“In other countries, maybe. But in this country it’s unpredictable. I love that. Nothing is for granted.
“In two or three weeks I will say ‘oh my God next season’, Liverpool is back, and Manchester United is stronger every season and Arsenal is making steps forward and they invest.”
Can Liverpool catch up?
Jurgen Klopp’s side should indeed be a much more competitive outfit next term.
Liverpool’s injury issues this season were unparalleled and they did remarkably well to hold on to a top four place in the end.
With Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson back, the Reds should be a stronger force to be reckoned with.
But with City seemingly having ambitious transfer plans, they may be a hugely challenging opponent to chase down.
The Daily Mail say that City will go after both Jack Grealish and Harry Kane in the summer, and if they land the England internationals, it is tough to see how anyone will be able to keep pace with Guardiola’s side.
