Liverpool move over Manchester United on trophy count

Liverpool moves over Manchester United on trophy count

Liverpool won their 19th league title on Thursday night after going 23 points clear at the top of the table with seven games left to play.

The Reds have now firmly established themselves as the top dog of English football. Jurgen Klopp’s side have 48 major honours compared to Manchester United’s 45. 

Although the Red Devils have one more league title than Liverpool, the Reds have fared far better in the European competitions and are leading the trophy count overall.

Liverpool now have 19 league titles, seven FA Cups and eight League Cups on the domestic front. They have also won six European Cups/Champions Leagues, three UEFA Cup/Europa Leagues, four European Super Cups and one FIFA Club World Cup.

On the other hand, Manchester United have 20 league titles, 12 FA Cups, five League Cups, three European Cups, one European Cup Winners’ Cup, one UEFA Cup/Europa League, one European Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup.

Liverpool ended their 30-year wait for the league title earlier in the week and they will now look to finish the season strongly and claim a few records along the way. The Reds will hope to build on this and come back all guns blazing next year as well.

With the monkey off their back, Liverpool will now feel that they can go on a trophy winning spree. They have a fantastic squad with a great balance of youth and experience. They also have Jurgen Klopp, who is arguably the best manager in the world right now. 

It will be interesting to see if Liverpool can defend their title against a motivated Manchester City side next season. Pep Guardiola will be desperate to reclaim the Premier League crown next year.
