Will Liverpool Or Manchester City Win The EPL Title Next Season
Liverpool and Man City will be content but not happy with how their season has gone. Both at some point through the campaign put themselves in a position to challenge but badly faded when it mattered most. They are now in a for the dogfight with each other to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions league instead of being still in contention for the EPL title.
The team that finished in the top four will have a big advantage over their rivals. It will mean that they can attract a higher caliber of player and be able to hold onto their star players easier. It is still possible that both clubs will manage to achieve this and Man U along with Arsenal will be the teams that miss out.
It is hard making Liverpool vs Man City predictions because there’s very little between the two clubs. It is why their star players are so vital as it gives them a slight edge over their competitors. Klopp had an advantage of Guardiola at the start of the campaign due to been at the club longer which has given him chance to fully assess the squad. It was the first season for Guardiola and now that he fully understands what it is about, he will better know the players he needs to compete for the title.
Liverpool’s standout signing of the summer was Mane and with him, in the side, they have looked like a completely different team. He was badly missed when playing at the African Cup of Nations and they will have to find another gem like him if they are going to progress. The defense has improved this campaign but there is still a long way to go if they want to compete for the title. If they can buy another attacker along with a top class defender and possibly a new goalkeeper they could be genuine contenders next season. One thing the manager will need to resolve is the team’s mentality when facing lower opposition. If they did not slip up so much against the lower placed teams they would be almost unstoppable.
Things have not gone how things were expected in Guardiola’s first season and one of the main reason for this is the team’s defense. They will need a new goalkeeper and center back during the summer and if the manager can greatly improve that area of the pitch they are in with a chance next campaign. The team is yet to be able to carry out Guardiola’s tactics which need to be altered to suit the style of English football. The high pace and physical attributes of the league are something the manager underestimated and will be something he addresses during the summer transfer window.
My Liverpool vs Man City betting tips for which team will come out top between the two is going to the Reds. The reason they are not challengers this campaign is that they slipped up too many times against lower teams. They will need to qualify for the Champions League to attract star quality but are on track if they can avoid any more slip-ups. With an addition of a couple of top class players along with getting rid of the dead wood should be enough to propel them to challenge for the EPL title.
