If you ever wondered why it’s just Liverpool and City at the top of the premier league log for five years now, their dealings in the present transfer window offers you the right answers to your questions.
City won the title last season and fell short of the champions league glory at the semifinals while Liverpool won the FA Cup and the League Cup but fell short of UCL glory at the last hurdle to Real Madrid, not forgetting how they pushed City till the last day in the league.
Manchester City wasted no time in the window, having confirmed Alcaraz in the winter window, they quickly added Erling Braut Haaland to their rich squad, goalscoring was not exactly a problem as they get goals from everywhere on the pitch and now with the Norwegian assassin, that’s a complete squad.
Liverpool understand Sadio Mane wants to leave and Mohammed Salah hasn’t penned a new deal, they signed Luis Diaz in January and he has already shown why other teams should be worried and as you’re reading this, Benfica have announced that Liverpool already met their valuation of Darwin Nunez and he will join the Reds this summer.
Imagine a front three of Salah, Diaz and Nunez with Diogo Jota and Firminho in the mix, what do they have at United to stop this side? What do they have at Arsenal to stop these two sides? Can Tottenham with Conte compete against these two sides?
Chelsea have been quiet and feelers from Stamford Bridge is that they want to rival Arsenal for Gabriel Jesus, the Romelu Lukaku conundrum is still there and they also need to find solutions to the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic.
For Arsenal, it’s embarrassing to note that they have been silent in a window where they need all the energy and actions. Arsenal finished fifth in a season they had fourth spot under their belt for a long time and with an extra proven midfielder they would probably have beaten Chelsea to third.
Liverpool and Manchester City will continue to dominate the league for years to come with the kind of businesses they do while others are making excuses. It should be of huge concerns to the chasing pack that the top two positions for next season are occupied, and that looks set to be cast in stone.
