Speaking to Metro, Graeme Souness said that it was extremely difficult for one team to dominate the Premier League for a sustained period of time due to its competitive nature. He also believes that it’s just a matter of time before Manchester United would make a comeback.
Liverpool are at the top of the Premier League table after winning 11 of their last 12 premier league games this season, 8 points ahead of their nearest competitor Leicester City.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Souness said:
You can never say they will go into a period of dominance because you have to look at Manchester City – they will be around for a long time.
There’s the emergence of Chelsea’s youngsters too. Will they get better in the next few years?
And Manchester United will be back, guaranteed. It’s just a case of when. So you can’t say Liverpool are going to dominate.
But once you’ve won the first one, it does give you a taste to win it again.
When I was there I was made to feel, ‘This is what we do – win leagues’.
That was the number one aim on the first day of the season, the league, not the European Cup. They felt that said more about you as an individual and a team.
Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they take on Crystal Palace away from home.
The Reds were impressive 3-1 winners over Manchester City at Anfield last time out.
