UEFA set to recommend Man City UCL exclusion for rule breaking

Liverpool gave its best effort but ultimately fell short.

For all their domestic domination in recent years, European success is the one thing that still eludes oil-rich Manchester City.

"It is fantastic to be in the Champions League final twice in a row, hopefully we can do a little bit better this time".

"To compete with this side, this team, we should do what we have done, so incredible, 198 points since we started two seasons ago here, and we finished here this season, made back-to-back - it has been an incredible season for us".

Manchester City players celebrate winning the Premier League.

"Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson and now Pep Guardiola really are the great managers of the Premier League era".

Fittingly, both clubs have not only set the combined best points total since the three-point system came about, but they have also recorded the best combined goal difference with an insurmountable plus 139.

"It's a big honour, a huge honour, but I would swap it immediately for the Premier League title", he said.

This is because an ongoing investigation by UEFA into City's spending habits is reportedly likely to find that the Manchester club have misled authorities about their finances.

"Liverpool were exceptional this year and I don't mean to rub it in - it is what it is - they didn't deserve to be second this year, but it only makes me that much more happy that we've been up against such a good team and when our backs were against the wall we kept finding the results".

When picking his Team of the Year, Crooks included the Dutchman alongside teammates Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson and Sadio Mane.

Yet while a sixth Champions League/European Cup trophy would be nice - particularly after the disappointment against Real Madrid in last season's final in Kiev - a first Premier League title next season remains the focus of the drive forward. Sure, Liverpool and Manchester City were miles ahead of everyone else in the league but there were some highlights elsewhere.

Van Dijk's influence on Liverpool's season was huge, helping the side to 21 clean sheets which saw goalkeeper Alisson Becker collect the Golden Glove award.
