Whether Liverpool wins the league title or Man City, this has undoubtedly been one of the most exciting title battles. With only two rounds remaining, a single point separates the two sides, with the Citizens holding that slight advantage.
And according to Arsene Wenger, the Reds are unlikely to overturn that deficit to end their long wait for a Premier League title. Their last English top-flight success was back in 1989-90 and while Klopp's men are on track to 97 points, which would be a record points tally for a runner-up, Le Prof believes the Merseyside giant will come in second.
One reason for this is Liverpool's next game, a trip to Newcastle. Not only will they be visiting a difficult ground in the form of St. James' Park, but they will also face a capable side led by the experienced Rafael Benitez.
Wenger feels that they could slip up in this tie, which will all but hand the title to Man City. Speaking on beIN Sports, he said: “There’s still hope but they go to Newcastle. Newcastle is not an easy place for Liverpool. I’m scared for Liverpool even with one game to go that Manchester City will already have won it but they will fight until the end.
"You have seen championships being lost on the last day of the season. (Liverpool) have to go until the end. That's what sport is about. They still might have a positive surprise."— beIN SPORTS (@beINSPORTS) April 28, 2019

“It looks like there’s a destiny that is against Liverpool. They dominated for such a long period in English football and suddenly from 89-90 until today, they cannot win the Premier League. Every time there are small things against them.”
While the Premier League is likely Klopp's biggest target, his immediate concern is their Champions League clash with Barcelona. Salah and Co. will head to Camp Nou on Wednesday for the highly-anticipated semi-final showdown with the Blaugrana.
