Liverpool's demise exposes alarming Premier League reality

Take a look at Manchester City’s bench from their 1-0 victory over Arsenal yesterday.

It featured over £300m worth of talent, including two back-up full-backs worth in excess of £50m each, a £57m back-up centre-back and a £63m central midfielder, as well as the fourth top scorer in Premier League history.

Had Liverpool not overachieved against the odds to such an incredible degree over the past couple of seasons to push City all the way in 2018/19 before emphatically overhauling them in 2019/20, City would now be cruising their way to a fourth consecutive Premier League title by a ludicrous margin.

It’s only Liverpool who have prevented the Premier League from becoming a total monopoly, akin to the one-team domination seen in the Bundesliga and Ligue 1 with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain (although, both those teams are facing much stronger competition than usual this season).

Is this the kind of league people actually want?

They finished 19 points clear in 2017/18, 26 points ahead of third-placed Chelsea in 2018/19, 15 points ahead of third-paced Manchester United last season, and are already 10 points clear after 25 games this season – a lead they will most likely extend significantly over the remaining 13 games, with the title already a foregone conclusion.

Then take a look at the kind of benches Liverpool have been putting out in recent weeks, with Jürgen Klopp regularly forced to call upon academy players purely to make up the numbers because he has had no alternative.
