Neil Warnock says Liverpool are back in the big time…but he’s still backing Manchester City to retain their title.
The Cardiff manager is well placed to judged, his team are the only side to have faced all of the Premier League top five and they’ve been beaten by all of them.
Warnock says Liverpool’s performance was, in many ways, the best of the lot of them against the Bluebirds, as the Anfield club marched back to the top of the Premier League.
But he argued that the Reds are probably still a little way behind Pep Guardiola’s men, and are better suited to cup success this season.
““They’ve all got their strengths…we did ever so well against Manchester City, and I can remember thinking ‘We’re doing well here’…and then we were 3-0 down 10 minutes later!
“ Liverpool are back in the big time here for sure,” he said, after his side were turned over following another Mo Salah super show.
“But I think they have more of a chance in the Champions’ League if I’m being honest, and the cups.
“I just think Manchester City have that little bit more week in week out in the league. I do think Liverpool are the most improved team with the signings he has made, and heaven knows what happens if he makes one or two for next season…
“They’ve all got their strengths…and we have certainly not had much luck with the fixture list – I think the FA must have done it!
“They are such good teams we are playing against. We did ever so well against City, and I can remember thinking ‘We’re doing well here’…and then we were 3-0 down 10 mins later! It was the same against Liverpool, we gave ourselves a chance, but they were just too good.”
Liverpool were impressive as they consolidated their position ahead of City, and Klopp was relieved to get to the top and give themselves breathing space before their giant clash at Arsenal next weekend.
“Now we have time to recover, the first time for a lot of the boys that they don’t play in three days’ time. We will use the time to recover then prepare the Arsenal game, which will be another nice challenge.”
