Liverpool Not Among EPL Greats - Solskjaer

Austin Papi

Manchester United Coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has claimed that Liverpool will need to win multiple Premier League titles before they should be considered among the English Premier League greats.

As Manchester United and Jurgen Klopp's side face off on Sunday, the later would move 16 points clear from second position, Manchester City, if they beat Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool had finished as runners-up to Manchester City last season, despite registering the club's all-time highest points for a single season - a tally of 97 points.

With 15 matches left in the English Premier League 2019-20 season, Liverpool, are yet to lose a match and has been tipped to becoming the run away winner of the league.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who won six Premier League titles with Manchester United as a player, has hailed the job Jurgen Klopp has done with the Liverpool outfit, but he believes it is too early to place this Liverpool team on the pantheon.

"If you are taking the long view, the very best teams are the ones who can do it again and again and again,

"No one really matches Sir Alex [Ferguson] in that respect but I would be the first to admit Jurgen Klopp has done a great job at Liverpool.

"At the moment he seems to know what he’s going to get every time he puts a team out, though we are only just past halfway through the season and there are still a lot of games to go.

"If you look at Liverpool now, they have 33 wins and five draws from their last 38 [league] games. That's 104 points, so it would have been a more than decent season.

"They are doing well, to say the least, and could win a treble this season but let's see where they are in May. They have a couple of difficult games coming up," he said.

Manchester United, who have been without a Premier League title since Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013, are currently 27 points adrift of the Merseyside outfit.
