The fact that Liverpool have dropped just two points during the entire Premier League campaign tells you a bit about their quality and relentlessness. They are going to win their first English Premier League, the writing is on the wall. Being 22 points clear at the top means it’s no longer a question of if, but when.

How much have they spent to reach to this point though? Substantially less than their nearest title challengers Manchester City as the stats suggest, and let’s not forget that Liverpool went on to win the Champions League last season as well.

Since Pep Guardiola arrived in the Premier League, his City side’s net spend is significantly more than that of Liverpool’s (according to Transfermarkt figures via the Anfield Edition).

So what did fans make of the reported net spend? Here are their responses:

Jurgen Klopp deserves immense credit for the job he’s done at Anfield but so do the club’s hierarchy, who have put their faith in the German from day one, supported him financially and created an environment perfect for success.

Although they missed out on the Premier League title last season by the narrowest of margins, the disappointment seems to have fuelled their push this season and we’re now looking at arguably one of the best teams in English football history.
