Liverpool and Manchester City would happily swap their positions in the Premier League and Champions League, according to Danny Mills.

Man City head into the Premier League finale against Brighton a point ahead of Liverpool, who host Wolves, looking to defend the Premier League title for the first time in the club’s history.

The Reds are still fighting to add to the 18 League titles since 1990 but produced another heroic comeback at Anfield to eliminate Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate and secured another back to back Champions League final.

Meanwhile, City who have invested heavily in their squad are yet to reach a Champions League final in their club history.

“In an ideal world, they would have swapped roles. Man City would have loved to be in a Champions League final,” Mills told Sky Sports News.

“Maybe not the fans but the club and where that takes them to a global level.

“Liverpool would quite happily be a point ahead going into the last game of the season and if they win they win the league.

“At the moment the league is probably a little more important to Liverpool because they haven’t won it for such a long time.

“The Champions League, in terms of where City are, is a little bit more important but it hasn’t worked out like that.”
