It’s only a single point that separates Manchester City and Liverpool on the table. Moreover, Jurgen Klopp says the Liverpool team have benefited from their rivalry over the past four seasons.
In the last four years, Manchester City have won three Premier League titles and Liverpool have won one. In the season of 2018-19, Manchester City won the league by one point against Liverpool.
Liverpool have played 144 league games since the start of the 2018-19 season and earned 337 points. Manchester City has earned 338 points in the same number of games.
“To be honest, I’m surprised by the numbers. It’s massive, “Klopp said. “They wouldn’t have the points they have if we weren’t there, and the same if the other way around. We obviously pushed each other properly. That’s the truth. It’s nice.”
Manchester City and Liverpool play each other on Sunday and that game could decide the Premier League winner as City are only a point ahead of Liverpool on the Premier League table.
