Liverpool have had two of the best seasons in Premier League history. They went toe to toe with Manchester City is 2018/19 and ended up on 97 points coming second.

Then the season after, Jurgen Klopp's men strolled to the league and finished with an incredible 99 points.

That form is very hard to keep up season on season and we saw that last year. However, Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville thinks that Liverpool still aren't back to their very best.

“I said after the Chelsea game here I didn’t think that Liverpool were just right. They’re still setting a good standard but the problem is they set themselves a standard you have very rarely seen in English football - they’re not at that standard.

“There is no doubt this team is not as good as the one from two, three years ago when they were absolutely blistering in possession and out of possession. It’s not quite the same physical performance - I don’t quite know why that is; something’s just gone a little bit.

“They’ve no doubt worked hard in these last four or five years, it’s been an outstanding performance but they look like they need a little refresh to go back up to that level.

“This level they’re at now can still win them the title this season but it’s just not the same as it was and it just allowed City in that first half to gain a lot of confidence.”
