Raheem Sterling has told Liverpool to expect a reaction from Manchester City next season as the Reds are getting closer to winning the Premier League title this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently leading the league table with 82 points, while Guardiola’s side are second with 57 points.
Ahead of Manchester City’s away game against Manchester United on Sunday, Sterling told Sky Sports: “I wouldn’t say we let it (the title) go too easily. In our first season [winning the league under Pep Guardiola] we scored a lot of late goals and we kind of built momentum throughout the season and this season we’ve had little decisions that go against you.
“They (Liverpool) have been consistent and we’ve been slacking and we haven’t kept our standards that we know we can keep. From now until the end of the season we need to try and win every single game and whatever happens, happens.
“We won the league twice in a row. They’re winning the league at this moment in time but I’m pretty sure, come the end of the season, when our boys go away and come back again, we’ll be very hurt – if they do pick up the league – and we’ll be up and running next season, for sure.”
And when Sterling was asked whether Liverpool can expect a reaction next season, he said: “Yeah, a massive one.”
