Liverpool won’t dominate the Premier League, claims Graeme Souness who believes Manchester United will re-emerge as a force to reckon.
The Merseyside reds have taken a huge step in the race to a Premier League trophy this season. Beating closest rivals Manchester City in their first duel, and extending the gap on the league table to eight points after just twelve games.
Liverpool are the only side yet to taste defeat in the current Premier League season, with an impressive 11 wins and only a draw at Old Trafford denting the winning streak.
However, Graeme Souness doesn’t see Liverpool enjoying a spell of dominance in the Premier League, as he believes the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea are likely to cause them problems in the future.
“You can never say they will go into a period of dominance because you have to look at Manchester City – they will be around for a long time,’ he told the Mirror.
“There’s the emergence of Chelsea’s youngsters too. Will they get better in the next few years?
“And Manchester United will be back, guaranteed. It’s just a case of when. So you can’t say Liverpool are going to dominate.
“But once you’ve won the first one, it does give you a taste to win it again. When I was there I was made to feel, “This is what we do – win leagues”.
“That was the number one aim on the first day of the season, the league, not the European Cup. They felt that said more about you as an individual and a team.”
Surely the odds favor Liverpool to lift the Premier League trophy this season. But first, they would have to survive a rigorous festive period which sees them play 13 games in less than six weeks, starting with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
