Jamie Carragher, ex Liverpool legend, asserted the rivalry between his former club as well as Manchester City may be the best in the history of English football..
Just before their meeting at the Etihad Stadium in a possible Premier League title decider on Sunday, Carragher has praised Liverpool and City as ‘the 2 best teams on the planet..
Although Manchester United’s rivalries with Chelsea and Arsenal have defined the Premier League era, Carragher mentions that these excellent teams had been just briefly outstanding in Europe.
Not merely are Liverpool and City fighting it out for the Premier League, with Pep Guardiola’s team only one point clear of Jurgen Klopp’s at the top, but they are going to meet in the FA Cup semi finals next weekend and may play one another in the Champions League final in Paris.
There’s a distinctiveness to it. This’s the very first time the 2 best teams in England are the 2 best teams in the world, led by the 2 greatest coaches of the generation.
“I can audibly hear the discord from Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal supporters as I point this out. You will find lots of head-to-heads worthy of comparison.
“Many will assert the fixtures overseen by Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger at their peak were of the same quality and packed just as a lot of mental punch,” the report stated.
When compared to the European championships, the parallels appear to lose steam.
“Even in the peak of the Premier League strength – when it was apparent in case one club didn’t end the season champions, another would – could it be argued that Arsenal and United had been the two greatest teams in Europe? In front of Real Madrid, AC Milan and Juventus? Not any, United versus Arsenal had been usually a domestic conflict. ”
Carragher asserts the only English football adversary of the late 1970s as well as 1980s is Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, worthy of comparison with current day Liverpool.
In between 1977 as well as 1981, either One or the other captured the Division One title or the European Cup (or perhaps both) for 5 successive seasons.
Although City chase the Premier League, the FA Cup and also the Champions League, Liverpool can earn a quadruple of the three awards and have won the Carabao Cup.
