The race for the Premier League title between Liverpool and Manchester City went down the wire last season, and it was a very close one in the 2013/2014 season, with Manchester City eventually overtaking Liverpool to win the title.

Liverpool suffered a huge blow in the title race back in 2014 as Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea beat them 2-0 at Anfield late in the end of the season, and the defeat ruined the season for the Reds.

City finished two points ahead of Liverpool to win the title, and Mourinho told former City captain Vincent Kompany that he failed to thank him for helping them win the title.

Jose Mourinho and Vincent Kompany were working as pundits in the Sky Sports studio for Liverpool vs Manchester City clash on Sunday as Liverpool beat City 3-1.

Kompany was far from convinced the title race is over as he said: “In this case, when you look at the last decade or so, there have been numerous times that Liverpool have been top of the league,” There have been numerous times where City have been behind as well…’

“But City were the best team,” Mourinho interrupted Kompany.

Before adding: “When I gave you the title you never told me thank you. When I gave you the title by winning here you didn’t even call me to say thank you, mister.

“You [City] were the best team. They were not the best team. However, now I feel there is not much difference in power, even in terms of status. You are the Champions of England, they are the Champions of Europe.”
