Former Scotland international Graeme Souness said Premier League Liverpool and Manchester City have the potential to “dominate” European football.
Premier League champions-elect Liverpool thumped Crystal Palace 4-0 on Wednesday to come within two points of sealing the title, two days after defending champions City beat Burnley 5-0.
“We’re enjoying a purple patch. These are two special teams in the time of the Premier League. These teams could dominate European football,” Liverpool great Graeme Souness told Sky Sports.
“It’s a different type of football, both great to watch. If you’re playing against Liverpool you have to be prepared to go to war with them … If you’re playing against City they want to play triangles and pass you to death.” Graeme Souness added.
Ex-England international Jamie Redknapp said comparing the two sides was like debating who is the better player: Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?
“It’s like the analogy of Messi or Ronaldo, which one do you prefer? They’re both brilliant at what they do,” he said.
