Liverpool ran Manchester City close in the Premier League finale at the weekend.

The Citizens looked to have left the door ajar for Liverpool when they trailed Aston Villa 2-0 on the final day, but they ultimately never lost their grip on first place.

In the end, Rodri’s brilliant finish and Ilkay Gundogan’s brace saw City fight back from behind to render Liverpool’s win over Wolverhampton Wanders immaterial and secure a fourth league title in just five years.

Liverpool and City shining bright

While, for many fans, the sight of City lifting the Premier League trophy yet again was a disappointing one, there’s no denying that we’re living through an elite era in the competition’s history.

Yes, City and Liverpool might have dominated England’s top-flight for the past half-decade, but they have done so with a standard that the division simply hasn’t seen since its 1992 rebranding.

Not only do Pep Guardiola’s centurions boast the highest points tally in Premier League history, swiftly followed by Liverpool’s league winners, but even the two clubs’ lesser seasons have still continued to reap head-spinning statistics.

Ilkay Gundogan

We’ll start with an easy one – who provided the assist for Ilkay Gundogan’s title winning goal?

Well, by ‘lesser seasons’, we mean seasons in which Liverpool and City aren’t bulldozing ten thousand records week in, week out.

And if you don’t believe us, then bear in mind for one second that both Liverpool and City’s 2021/22 sides amassed more Premier League points than Manchester United‘s treble winners and Arsenal‘s ‘Invincibles’.

Pretty remarkable, right? Well, the utter dominance shown by Manchester and Liverpool’s finest over the past few years is such that they are right up there amongst the division’s greatest ever sides each and every year.
