'Without doubt' - Rodri makes blunt Liverpool admission amid Man City title battle

By Tom Cavilla

Manchester City midfielder Rodri believes it will be 'difficult' for any side in the future to replicate the performance levels that both the Premier League leaders and Liverpool are continuing to show.

The two teams are facing off against each other in a high-quality battle for the Premier League title once again having previously gone head-to-head for glory in a race that went down to the final day of the 2018/19 campaign.

Pep Guardiola's side currently have the edge over the Reds due to their superior goal difference and will look to restore their three-point lead at the top of the table when taking on Wolves this evening. Regardless of how the season ends, the rivals have led the way in England and have been comfortably clear of the likes of Chelsea and other top-four candidates.

Such consistency is difficult to sustain - and Rodri is adamant that City and Liverpool are very much two unique sides that others will struggle to replicate the success of.

“I think it's going to be difficult to find a team in the future at the level of the current Manchester City and Liverpool," he told his club's official website. "We will see, but I think both teams have been built with two different styles of football, but are similar in terms of efficiency.

“Without a doubt, Liverpool is the best opponent I have ever faced.”

Rodri is now in his third season at City and has slowly developed into a key player Now familiar with the 'demanding' nature of the division, the Spain international has explained how the intenseness of the league makes coming out on top an even greater feeling.

He said: “Playing in the Premier League is incredible and even more so playing for Manchester City. We have shown it in the last few years in the competition. The Premier League is so demanding, so when you win the trophy, it is very rewarding and makes you feel proud. It's great playing in this country of football, with all the passion from all the fans."
