Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has stated that the form Liverpool have shown this season has been “phenomenal”.

Many thought reigning champions Manchester City would be the team to catch this season, however, Jurgen Klopp’s side have been ruthless in terms of gaining points.

The Reds are currently 16 points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand. With that being the case, the club have a serious opportunity to claim a maiden Premier League title.

Guardiola has stated that what Liverpool have been able to achieve this season has been “phenomenal”. He also added that the Reds will claim the 2019-20 Premier League title.

“Liverpool obviously will be champions of the Premier League, but they would be champions in Spain, champions in Italy, champions in Germany,” Guardiola said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

“They would be champions everywhere after 23 games, 22 victories, one draw.

“In the recent past when Chelsea won the league, the next season, they didn’t qualify for the Champions League, Leicester the same and Chelsea again the same. When we won the league we repeated the league.

“In Spain with the points we have we would be there, one or two points behind the leader, in Germany we would be there, one or two points behind the leader, in Italy as well.

“But Liverpool are just fantastic, phenomenal, overwhelming. So we have to accept it and learn from that.”

Guardiola is correct in regards to where Liverpool would sit if they played in the other big leagues. Liverpool are by far the best team in the world right now.

Klopp has led Liverpool to the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup within the past six months. The Premier League title would be the icing on the cake.
