Paul Merson reacts to Klopp recently playing a £140k-a-week star

Paul Merson has claimed the gap between Liverpool and Manchester City sides is “scary” – and proof of that is Jurgen Klopp recently playing against James Milner.

The former midfielder tells Sky Sports that Liverpool will not lead Manchester City to the Premier League title.

There is hope that if the Reds can beat Southampton on Tuesday night, Aston Villa – led by Steven Gerrard – will help them on the last day of the season.

During this season, with the addition of Ibrahima Konate and Luis Diaz, Liverpool have started to creep up on – or even surpass – the quality Pep Guardiola has to choose from.

But Merson is adamant Manchester City are still way ahead in that regard, so it’s “even more unbelievable” that this side are still fighting for every single competition.

“What they’ve done in the league over nine months in all competitions is just mind-blowing,” Merson said. “And they don’t have the biggest squad.

“No disrespect but you are taking James Milner to the FA Cup final. He’s 37. It’s not like signing Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva or Riyad Mahrez.

“The gap between the two sides is scary so it’s even more incredible that Liverpool are doing what they did.”

At the weekend as Liverpool won the FA Cup, Milner came off the bench after 76 minutes and put in a solid performance for his side as they lifted another trophy.

Since the £140,000-a-week man (Spotrac) swapped Manchester City’s colors for Liverpool’s, he has again answered why.

He lifted the Premier League title at Etihad and could have added even more had he stayed.

But at Anfield he has the all-important Champions League medal around his neck – and he can add a second in Paris against Real Madrid.
