Manchester United legend Paul Scholes claims the current Liverpool team are not as good as the Manchester City side that won the Premier League with 100 points, and insists Pep Guardiola “will always play better football”.
City won the league title in 2017-18 with 100 points, and Pep Guardiola’s side clinched the championship over Liverpool last season by a single point.
The Reds are walking away with the Premier League this season and are currently 22 points clear of City in second place.
But United treble winner Scholes believes that the current Liverpool team “get the job done” but are not better than the City side that won the championship in 2017-18.
When asked if Jurgen Klopp’s side are better than the City side of two seasons ago, Scholes told BBC Radio 5 Live: “No, not particularly no. I still think Pep’s team will always play better football than this Liverpool team.”
Scholes added: “They get the job done, no fuss about it.”
