The Top 20 Premier League Points Tallies Shows Liverpool And Manchester City Are In Their Own League

Manchester City and Liverpool have been going for the Premier League crown in recent years, and their points tallies shows they’re a class above the rest. 

City produced a monumental come back from 2-0 down against Aston Villa to win 3-2 and clinch their fourth title in five years. Liverpool have again been found one point short of Pep Guardiola’s amazing City side. 

A crazy period in the final 15 minutes at the Etihad stadium started with Ilkay Gundogan’s header, a sweet Rodri strike, a Gundogan tap in and five minutes later, City have left their fans in ecstatic mood as they celebrated winning the title in the most dramatic style.

Since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and Guardiola at City, it was clear from day one that they were building something special at their respective clubs. But no one ever thought it would be this good, both teams have been playing at the highest level year in year out. Records have been sent tumbling by both teams week in week out. It has been immensely good from both of these incredible teams. 

To put things into perspective, out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s 13 title wins with Manchester United, the highest points total they ever reached was 91 points, when they won the league in the 99/00 season. Liverpool have finished second place with 92 points in the 21/22 season and a staggering 97 points only left them second again in the 18/19 season.

Arsenal’s famous 03/04 ‘invincibles’ only amassed 90 points, City became the first team to reach triple figures when they achieved 100 points during the title winning 17/18 season. 

Liverpool’s 19/20 season title winners are a close second, having notched 99 points during a season hampered by the COVID pandemic.

This is for sure an era of unprecedented quality, Guardiola and Klopp have led their sides to six of the eight highest Premier League points tallies. And they do not look like stopping anything soon, City have added Erling Haaland to their already frightening attacking options, whilst Liverpool will be looking to add freshness into their squad as they look to mount and sustain a charge to topple Guardiola’s side next season.
