Will Liverpool Finish Above Manchester City Next Season

It is tough to make predictions for Liverpool Vs Man City as there is not much separating the two teams. They are both managed by two of the best managers in the world and have star players who could get into almost any team in the world. This season it looks like it will go down to the wire for the team that will finish above the other. A reward is a place in the Champions League which will greatly boost their chances of attracting the best talent in the world. It is still possible that both could still qualify with Manchester United along with Arsenal missing out this campaign.

When Liverpool face the top teams in the division they look unstoppable and have an unbelievable record against the top six. The problems arise when they play the lesser clubs and they have dropped far too many points in matches they should have taken home all three. They would be in the title race still if they had beaten the lower league teams and is something that needs putting right next season by Klopp if they are going to progress.

Many Manchester City fans thought they would win the EPL this season when Pep Guardiola joined in the summer. They got off to a flyer and everything looked on track before a tricky spell which has resulted in them being in a battle to qualify for the Champions League. The team needs a few changes so that they can play the manager’s tactics better. After having a full campaign under his belt Guardiola will know the types of player he needs to improve the team. A lot will depend on them qualifying for the Champions League this season so that they can attract the best players in the world.

Both teams are in desperate need of strengthening their defense if they are going to make a genuine challenge for the title next season. The goalkeeper and center backs could do with replacing to make themselves more solid at the back. Klopp’s style of play is better suited to the EPL so it will be interesting to see if Guardiola changes his tactic next season to make the team a lot more aggressive. A world class striker to replace Sergio Aguero for the Blue and Daniel Sturridge for the Red is also needed. The team that manages to find the best replacement has a great chance of finishing at the top of the league.

My Liverpool vs Man City tips is that the Blues will edge it both this and next season. They will be a lot better team next campaign due to the manager knowing the EPL better and have the bigger resource that The Reds to bring in genuine world class stars. One thing is for certain that there will not be much in it again next campaign. A lot will depend on who can keep their star players and find gems to improve the squad.
