Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has warned Liverpool how difficult it is to win back-to-back Premier League titles.
The Cityzens became Premier League champions two seasons in a row under Pep Guardiola – 2017/18, 2018/19, however, missed out on becoming champions in 2019/20 season as they finished 18-points behind league leaders Liverpool.
“It was harder than we expected and we needed a very big fight with them to get it done,” De Bruyne told the Daily Mail. “Mentally, sometimes it’s tougher. Some teams are a little more focused on beating you.
“Sometimes, some people find it more difficult after winning to get that same feeling again. It is very difficult to recreate the same feeling even with the same team.
“There is so much in life that goes on personally. Every little thing can change you. Injury can change you. Football is all about circumstances and it’s already difficult enough to try and win one, never mind twice.
“I think they [Liverpool] can reach the levels again. I don’t think you need to change the team to have the same feeling or ambition. But I don’t know how they feel. I don’t know their desire. For everyone, it is personal.”
