Liverpool do this for the third time in a decade after Manchester City win the league

It seems as though Liverpool just aren’t destined to win the Premier League, Liverpool were top on Christmas Day but have been beaten to the podium by Manchester City.

Liverpool finished the season with a whopping 97 points, Jurgen Klopp’s side have set a new record for the highest ever points tally for a second-placed team.

Unfortunately for the Reds for the third time in the last decade they’ve not managed to win the league, despite being on top at Christmas Day.

In the 2008/09 season the Reds fell short against heated rivals Manchester United and in 2013/14 the Merseyside outfit were second to Manchester City.

Liverpool had a seven point lead over City at one stage of the season but a less than impressive run of form at the turn of the year saw City get themselves back into pole position to win the title.
