Gary Neville, an eight-time title victor with Manchester United, has admitted Manchester City could be the greatest Premier League team ever.

The quality and intensity of the title race was emphasised by City requiring a 14th successive league victory to finish a point above a Liverpool side chasing a first championship crown in 29 years as the top two finished with a record 195 points combined.

City were actually better off last season, in terms of points and goal difference, but Liverpool have taken their game to new levels on the domestic front this time around, improving their points tally by 22 and goal difference by 21.

Liverpool plays Tottenham in the Champions League final on June 1.

"To get 97 points, to play football like we have played all season, we have to be very, very proud", said Van Dijk.

"But we have to look on the positive side and remember we are still in Madrid [so] hopefully we can end the season on a high - that's what we are going to try to do".

It's nearly as if Liverpool haven't been to two Champions League finals in two years and haven't just earned 97 points in a single Premier League season.

Klopp and his backroom staff had two post-season scenarios in place before the stunning Champions League comeback against Barcelona and will allow players a five-day break following their usual recovery session yesterday. Jurgen Klopp has done stellar work at Anfield, but after the Champions League final he will go back to the drawing board to figure out just how he can unseat the Catalan.

"The team made so many big steps in the past year".
