Noel Gallagher explains why Man City will continue to finish above Manchester United in the Premier League
The Blues clinched their fourth Premier League title in style on the final day of the season with a 4-1 over Brighton, with goals from Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan cancelling out Glenn Murray’s opener.
It meant that City not only became the first team to retain the title since Manchester United a decade ago, they also finished 32 points ahead of their cross town rivals – up on the 19 point gap last season.
He believes that City’s dominance over United is only going to continue.
“It’s all about the team [at City],” he told TalkSport.
“The other mob in Stretford, they’re just buying individuals. You see [Alexis] Sanchez and [Paul] Pogba.
“They’re in trouble. They remind me of where we were in the late 1980s/early 90s – they’re just trying to buy their way out of trouble now.
“As long as Guardiola’s here, they’re not getting anywhere near us. No one is.”
City beat Liverpool to the league by just a single point after a remarkable title race that saw Liverpool claim the third highest points total ever – which would have been enough to win the Premier League in any other season apart from the last two.
Yet Gallagher believes they won’t be able to reach those heights again and City will reign over English football.
“Even next season, can Liverpool be any better than that? They’ve jammed it this season,” he added.
“I think next season, Liverpool don’t get near us either.”
