Former Manchester United hero Paul Scholes believes Liverpool could win the treble this season but still thinks Manchester City are a better team to watch than Jurgen Klopp’s current side.
Some pundits are beginning to question whether this season’s Liverpool team are the best to have played in the Premier League era, with the Reds having collected a sensational 73 points from a possible 75 so far.
They are also still in contention for the FA Cup and Champions League, and Scholes does not see any reason why they can’t win everything on offer.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live Scholes said: “What they’ve done so far is nothing other than sensational. They can go and win the treble, they can go the season unbeaten.
“Liverpool obviously will be champions of the Premier League, but they would be champions in Spain, champions in Italy, champions in Germany. They would be champions everywhere after 23 games, 22 victories, one draw.
“Liverpool are just fantastic, phenomenal, overwhelming. So we have to accept it and learn from that.”
Despite their unbelievable season, Scholes still does not think Liverpool play as good football as City at their best under Pep Guardiola.
The Premier League total points tally record was set by Guardiola’s team in 2017-2018, when City recorded 100 points on their way to the title, and Scholes prefers their style of football.
When asked if Liverpool are better than City at their peak, he said: “No, I don’t think they are. I still think Pep’s team will always play better football. Liverpool’s team just get the job done.”
Liverpool are back in action this weekend following their winter break as they take on bottom-of-the-table Norwich on Saturday, while City take on West Ham on Wednesday after their game was postponed last weekend due to Storm Ciara.
