Gabriel Jesus' winner at Southampton in 2018 meant Man City ended the 2017/18 season with 100 points.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes compares this Liverpool FC team to Man City Centurions

Liverpool's Premier League leaders will still not be as good as Manchester City's 2017/18 side under Pep Guardiola, Paul Scholes says.


It's only a matter of time until Liverpool win the Premier League, with talk moving on to just how good Jurgen Klopp's men are.

Liverpool have not lost in the Premier League since Manchester City won 2-1 in January 2019 at the Etihad, and they look fully capable of going the entire season without being defeated.

However, according to Manchester United legend Paul Scholes, this current Liverpool side will still not be considered at the same level as Pep Guardiola's City sides of the last two years because their success is more concentrated on results rather than style.

"What they've done is sensational, the way they keep performing week in week out," Scholes told Robbie Savage's Premier League Breakfast on BBC 5Live on Friday.

"They can go and win the treble and go unbeaten. It's not going to be easy.

"You do think at some point one team will beat them but what they've achieved so far is nothing other than sensational and of course they're going to win the league now it's just whether they can add the FA Cup and Champions League. You wouldn't bet against them winning a treble."

However, Scholes did not go as far as saying Liverpool were better than the City side who recorded 198 points over 2017/18 and 2018/19. That included the first 100-point haul in Premier League history, and Scholes feels that achievement is a better one.

"No I don't think they are [better than City's Centurions]," Scholes continued.

"I still think Pep's team will always play better football. This Liverpool team gets the job done, I don't think it's always the prettiest they just get the job done and there's no fuss about it."
