Investigators Seek Man City's Ban From Champions League

Investigators Seek Man City's Ban From Champions League”

Mental strength City may have won the title with the second highest points tally in Premier League history, but they have had plenty of setbacks along the way.

City have previously denied any wrongdoing, dismissing the allegations as "entirely false" so it seems likely that they will fight any potential punishment all the way.

Well, not in the mind of Garth Crooks, who believes that Van Dijk may seek an exit if the club do not win the Champions League on June 1.

If there were celebrations in the blue half of Manchester, there was disappointment on Merseyside as Liverpool came up agonisingly short despite losing just one league game all season.

They became the first team to retain the Premier League title since Manchester United in 2011 at the weekend, pipping Liverpool to the trophy, and could complete a domestic treble when they face Watford in the FA Cup final next month. "We take a lot of things with us, we will take this on, and hopefully we can challenge next year and do even better". We will go into next season as strong as ever.

The problem is, Liverpool's incredible season was a one-off; it's hard to see them repeating it, or at the very least they haven't yet had the chance to prove they can, thus leaving no evidence to show they will.

"We have the Champions League to play for".

Both defenders had created 11 goals apiece until Alexander-Arnold came up with a final moment of magic against Wolves, setting up Sadio Mane for the Senegalese's second and taking him to 12 assists, eclipsing the previous record set by Stig Inge Bjornebye during the 1996/97 season.

'There have been ups and not many downs.

'Ninety-seven points wins every single league apart from last season so if we do that again we will keep knocking on the door and we won't be far off it. "Everything else is forgotten about", Robertson said.

"I can say only that the club asked me to get into the Champions League, and we reached that target".

The 48-year-old has lost just 68 matches in 623 games, and his teams have scored 1,487 goals in those matches; an average of 2.57 goals per game.

That is why the Reds can not rest and be too satisfied with their achievements, because they will have to improve further if they are going to challenge again.
