"Liverpool's Best Years Were Spent Getting To The Top, Now They're Done"
Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher has claimed that Liverpool are 'done' and spent their best years 'getting to the top' rather than winning things.
Liverpool have had an incredible period of improvement under Jurgen Klopp, since the German manager took over from Brendan Rodgers in October 2015, taking the Reds from top four challengers to champions.
The past two seasons have seen them miss out on one Premier League title to Manchester City by one point, win the Champions League and finally win their first English league title in 30 years, beating their rivals by 17 points.
Things haven't gone according to plan this season though and City's Phil Foden inspired 4-1 win over the Reds on Sunday left Pep Guardiola's side above the Anfield team by 10 points, with a game in hand.
Now former Oasis frontman Gallagher has questioned just how good the Reds ever were.
"All I've heard for the last 48 hours is that Liverpool have been the best team in England for the last four years so it's inevitable..." he told talkSPORT about the champion's current drop off.
"But then I think they must've won a barrel-load of trophies because I can only count one!
"So presumably you're saying City have been the second best team in England for the last four years and I lost count after the six trophies we won. I didn't bother counting after that!

"I don't know where all this nonsense has come from but Liverpool are going to have to go some way to be worse champions than we were in the 60s when we won one year and got relegated the next."

"All the great managers I've said when you win it's the end of something not the beginning of something, you've got to go again," the City season ticket holder added.
"I never thought I'd see City win a title never mind back-to-back titles.
"But I think with Liverpool their best years were spent getting there. Now they're there, I think they're done."
Gallagher, who also claimed that Foden is worth £200 million after his performance at the weekend, will be surprised to find himself on the same side as Manchester United legend Roy Keane.
The former Ipswich manager, turned television pundit, called the Reds 'bad champions' following their third home defeat in-a-row.
Speaking straight after the match, Keane said, "If you keep performing like that it will be another 30 years before you win the league title."
