Liverpool fans have been fuming on Twitter over recent comments made by former Manchester United player Paul Scholes.

This comes after Liverpool news Twitter account @LivEchoLFC shared a post on their page that included an article from the Liverpool Echo who relayed quotes made by the Englishman on BBC Radio 5 Live.

When asked if this current Liverpool side are playing better football than the 2017/18 Manchester City Centurions side, Scholes said that City “will always play better football” than this Liverpool team.

Will Liverpool go unbeaten in the Premier League this season?

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Liverpool fans who were quick to share their immediate thoughts on Scholes’ opinion.

Here’s a sample of Liverpool fans reacting to the post:

The 2017/18 season saw Guardiola’s City side win the Premier League with a record 100 points, 25 points above Klopp’s Liverpool (per Transfermarkt). The season after that saw City complete a domestic quadruple, winning the Premier League, FA Cup, EFL Cup and Community Shield. However, during this current season, City find themselves 22 points behind Liverpool in the Premier League table. Now with a third consecutive Premier League title looking unlikely for City, Scholes’ latest comparison on the two sides has caught the attention of several Liverpool fans who were quick to have their thoughts heard on Twitter.

What do we think?

If Scholes thinks Pep’s City team from a couple of years ago are better than this Liverpool side, then that’s his opinion that he’s entitled to. But given the fact that this current Liverpool side are 22 points above Pep’s City team at the moment, that’s a fair point in their argument. But on the whole, when an ex-United player takes a dig at Liverpool, there’s always going to be some sort of reply from the Reds fans.
