Ilkay Gundogan has warned newly-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool that Manchester City know exactly where they have to improve next season.
Pep Guardiola’s side host Liverpool at the Etihad on Thursday, live on Sky Sports Premier League, having relinquished their two-year reign at the summit with a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea last Thursday.
City currently sit 23 points off Liverpool, having lost eight Premier League games this season – more than they lost in the previous two seasons combined.
And although Gundogan readily admits Jurgen Klopp’s side are fully deserving of this season’s crown, he knows exactly how City are going to bounce back.

“We know where we can improve next season to challenge for the title again,” Gundogan exclusively told Sky Sports News.
“We won the title back-to-back which is always tough but the motivation for next season will be there to win it again.
“We dropped too many unnecessary points that we didn’t last season and lost too many home games in comparison to when we were unbeatable.
“There were also a few individual mistakes so there is plenty of room for improvement and we’ll start next season from zero again.”
