Liverpool finished the season with 98 points, 32 points ahead of Manchester United and Chelsea who finished the season with 66 points.

There have been talks whether the two sides can fight for the title next season.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes Chelsea and Manchester United must improve by 15% in order to meet up with City. Gary Neville has also tasked the two clubs to be ruthless in their decisions.

He said on Sky Sports’ Gary Neville Podcast: “What Manchester United and Chelsea need now is to not think this is OK.

“The big mistake these two clubs could make would be to think they are going catch Manchester City and Liverpool, they won’t if they don’t improve by another 10-15 per cent.

“When Manchester United are reflecting on this season they should say ‘yes’ – recruitment is better, performances in the last part of the season are better, youth in the team is good.

“But when they ask the question whether they are at the quality they need to be, the answer is ‘no’.

“As a Manchester United fan, ex-player, pundit or commentator, they are still a long way off winning a title and they have to keep going in the right direction and push.

“When Liverpool got nearly there, they spent £150m on Alisson and Virgil van Dijk. Manchester City invested £150m in full-backs when Guardiola didn’t win in his first season and a goalkeeper.

“You’ve got to be ruthless, the best managers in the world are ruthless. Frank and Ole have got to be ruthless with their boards.”
