The Latest Football News From Liverpool: Premier League “would be boring” without Liverpool keeping up with Man City

While rival fans and banter social media accounts find pleasure in Liverpool not winning the league, missing out on two of the last four seasons by just a single point, without Jurgen Klopps side City would have just won five titles in a row something that has never happened in English football history.

Those same people who revel in Liverpool not winning a title are quick to deride leagues like the Bundesliga and Ligue 1, where Bayern Munich and PSG dominate so easily.

Without Liverpool, the Premier League would be one of those so-called Farmers Leagues now.

And this is something Ian Wright pointed out on Saturday ahead of the Community Shield.

Imagine if Liverpool werent doing what theyre doing, said the former Arsenal striker.

If Liverpool werent doing what theyre doing, City would be running away with the league. It would be boring.

People are saying Im a closet Liverpool fan! Im thankful for them [Liverpool] because we wouldnt [have any competition] so they deserve credit and good luck to them I hope they can [compete].

Wright added on Citys transfers too: City are so good and now theyve signed Erling Haaland as well might be the final piece in their jigsaw.

Liverpool are having to do the work they have to do to get players out to get them in whereas City are able to buy a player like this [Haaland] and Kalvin Phillips and [Julian] Alvarez.

Wright is correct in his assessment, as he often is as a pundit, able to see the full picture.

Liverpool got a slight marker on City ahead of the new season with Saturdays Community Shield win, but they know that City often start slow before hitting near-perfection later in the season.

City added Haaland on wages reported to be 375,000 per week this summer, along with Kalvin Phillips and Julian Alvarez. Theyre also looking to add another expensive full-back with their pursuit of Brightons Marc Cucurella.

Cucurella would become the fifth full-back signed by Pep Guardiola for over 25 million in the last five seasons, following Joao Cancelo (25m + Danilo), Benjamin Mendy (52m), Kyle Walker (45m) and Danilo (26m).
