Gary Neville Talks Brilliantly About The Possibility Of Liverpool Dominating For Years
There's no doubt about Liverpool's domination of the Premier League this season but Gary Neville has told people to calm down over the idea of their domination lasting for 'years.'
Jurgen Klopp's side restored their 22 point advantage over second place Manchester City on Monday night with a 3-2 comeback win over West Ham.
With the Reds' undefeated all season in the league still, and close to going a year without losing, there is talk of just how dominant this side can be going forward. But, talking on Monday Night Football, Neville had some smart words of warning.

Whilst the former Manchester United full back admits there is a good chance that the Reds could go on to dominate but his warning about previous teams that have been in similar situations is fair.
Arsenal won the Premier League three times under Arsene Wenger but were never able to win back-to-back titles and despite the 2003/04 team going undefeated in winning the league they never won the title again.
Jose Mourinho's Chelsea were the next side expected to dominate in England and did at least manage to win back-to-back titles but that domination didn't last long and Manchester United then won three tiles in-a-row.
Even the Manchester City sides under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini failed to defend their titles and Pep Guardiola's side won't match rivals United by winning three on the trot.
History suggests that despite Klopp's side dominating this year, following on from the season where they missed out by one point, doesn't necessarily mean they will continue to do so.
The biggest task for the German is to keep refreshing his team at the right time, as Sir Alex Ferguson was able to do at Old Trafford, and considering how he built his current side he certainly could do so.
Liverpool are going to break all sorts of records winning the league this season, and end their 30 year run without winning the title, in what will be the biggest domination of a season ever.
The big question will be what comes next.
