The Premier League is 'harder' to win than the Champions League, says Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
The Saints host Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool on Tuesday in a big fixture that could impact the Premier League title race.
Manchester City dropped points at West Ham United last weekend, meaning Liverpool could reduce the deficit to just one point ahead of the final league game of the season on Sunday.
The Blues, however, remain in pole position to secure their eighth league title.
But Liverpool, who have already bagged the EFL Cup and FA Cup this season, also have the Champions League final on their radar.
And ahead of Liverpool's league fixture at St Mary's Stadium, Hasenhuttl believes it's harder to win the Premier League than the Champions League.
He said: "This is still the title that's the most countable for everybody because it's the hardest to get.
"For me it's even harder to be over 38 games in the Premier League consistently on the top, than to win the Champions League sometimes."
Liverpool meet Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28.
They're hoping to claim their seventh European triumph, while Man City are still looking for their first Champions League title.
Hasenhuttl added: "Even if he [Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp] says it's tough for him to go for all four, I know he will do everything to win this game on Tuesday to give himself a chance on the last day.
"I think it is fantastic for the Premier League to have such a close title race.
"Everybody is electrified from this battle and we are now part of this duel.
"We have done our job this season against Man City with two points; they lost four points against us in the title race.
"Against Liverpool, the first game we lost, so now it's up to us to show again that we can be competitive against a top team."
