Jamie Carrgher Outlines His Main Fear for Liverpools Premier League Aspirations in 2019/20

Jamie Carrgher has admitted that Manchester City's remarkable consistency is likely to prevent Liverpool from claiming their first Premier League title in 2019/20.

Despite amassing an incredible tally of 97 points last season, Liverpool missed out on their long-awaited title as City pipped them by a solitary point in a battle that went right down to the wire.

​Liverpool were incredibly unfortunate to miss out on the title given their impressive record, but they could be set for more heartache again if ​City are able to match the lofty standards they have set themselves over the past two seasons.

That's the opinion of former defender Carragher, who recently spoke to ​Off the Ball about Liverpool's chances for the upcoming season.

“I think it will be very difficult," he said. "I think City are a special team. I think City have proven that when they’re at their best they get 90-odd points, 98, 100.

“Liverpool have done it once, City have done it twice. That tells me that’s what City do. I think this season we’ve got to see if Liverpool’s season in getting 97 was a freak. And it probably could be because it was.

“It’s probably only happened three or four times in history and Man City have done it twice. That could be a problem not just for Liverpool but for the rest of the top six as long as Man City and Pep Guardiola are about."

After completing their pre-season schedule, both sides will be in action in the Community Shield on Sunday as they look to kick off the season with a piece of silverware.
