Peep Guardiola's Concours Liverpool has it "easy".

The Manchester City boss claimed this week that the Reds were "playing without pressure" in recent months because the Premier League title race had not been in their hands.

The Spaniard, who was clearly feeling the tension ahead of Sunday's nervous-jumping finale, is utterly nonsense.

George Clopp was not rude when George's comments were granted in Melbourne on Friday.

"All respect for City for what they've done this time. I don't know who has more pressure or whatever, both delivered and here we are," said Clop. It was a classy reply.

Easy? The fact that Liverpool took the title race down to the final day was an extraordinary feat.

On February 24, at Old Trafford, the Reds took 28 points out of a possible 30.

Over the years, Klopp has juggled his resources to adapt to a challenge at home, but also has a successful European knockout tide with Fichen Munich, Porto and Barcelona.

The city, which has ruled off 13 straight league wins, has had more time to rest and recuperate having failed to get out of the last eight of the Champions League once again.

But for Liverpool's superhuman effort it wouldn't even have a title this season. Instead, there would have been another procession for the most expediently assembled squad in the history of football.

Has it been a level playing field? Time will tell. Only one of the title contenders stands accused of cooking the books.

The city is now under investigation by FIFA, UEFA, the FA and the Premier League allegedly brushing financial rules. Liverpool will await their findings with interest.

The fact is that Chic Mansour's PetroDollars can't buy what Clop created in Liverpool.

The fruits of the German work are there in all its glory when Barcelona is humiliated on Tuesday.

It was the biggest night Annned had ever witnessed – one that defeated the logic when the 3-0 first-leg deficit was upset.

Clop is a team in his own image that gives everything the reason. He galvanized a fanbase and harnessed the power of Anfield.

Not only did he buy wisely, he created an environment that received every end of his gift.

For all of the talk about hunger, desire, spirit and resilience, dragging Liverpool over the line in Midweek, it is also a tactical masterclass from CLOPP, and its players carry out the game of perfection.

Clop is the first manager to lead the Reds to back-to-back European Cup finals since Joe Fagner's innings.

And he did it while also gaining 94 points and suffering, just one league defeat all deadlines ahead of Sunday's final showdown at home to Wolves.

It's what regardless of whether it's a silver lining to this sensational time, Clop should crown manager of the year.

Just look at the stats. Liverpool is on the shore of removing unbeatable at home in consecutive top-flight seasons for the first time in 39 years.

Sunday's victory would be the top-flight record of 30 wins in a time of over 42 matches in 1978/79.

Mohamed Salah is on the premier league leader in the story to be the top-flying leading scorer in successive seasons, while Alisson Baker is one pure leaf away from achieving the most shootout since Ray 40 years ago.

Two games to go and Liverpool find themselves battling it for the two biggest prizes in football.

Inspired by the clop of the clop, it is easy.
