Liverpool’s new signing Dominik Szoboszlai has claimed that they can finish above Manchester City in the Premier League this campaign.
Man City have dominated English football in the last six years, winning five league titles, including the last three. And only Liverpool have been able to stop them, winning the league in the 2019-20 season.

The Reds have consistently challenged Pep Guardiola’s side in recent years except last season. Liverpool finished trophyless and in fifth place in the league table.
Jurgen Klopp’s side certainly need a big improvement, but Szoboszlai is confident they will be able to challenge Manchester City again.
When asked which team will finish above Man City this season, the midfielder replied (via LFC Transfer Room): “Us… It’s not a joke, I am thinking it. I always think that way even if it is hard.”
Liverpool have had a decent start to the 2023-24 campaign and are two points behind Manchester City after three matches.
Meanwhile, In a recent interview with Sky Sports, City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne ranked his top three Premier League players in different positions.
When asked to rank Virgil van Dijk, Thiago Silva and Lisandro Martinez, the Belgian star picked the Liverpool skipper at the top.
De Buryne and Van Dijk are close friends and were seen holidaying together during the summer break. They also seem to have huge respect for each other as players.
The City playmaker said: “Rolls-Royce. He’s got everything. Obviously I know him well, but he’s got right foot, left foot, speed, height; he’s a leader. Thiago (Silva) is also amazing, but I just think Virgil’s got that little bit more.”
