Arsene Wenger fears “destiny” is against Liverpool this season as they fight to end the wait for their first Premier League crown.

Klopp’s men have produced a stellar performance to be in the title race this season having racked up 91 points in 36 games. However, that brilliance has been overshadowed by Man City.

Sergio Aguero’s goal at Turf Moor on Sunday gave City a 1-0 win over Burnley and lifted the champions back above Liverpool to the top of the table.

The Citizens currently have their destiny in their hands barring a slip-up with Klopp’s men remain just a point behind and ready to capitalise on any mistake.

Liverpool travel to Newcastle next on Saturday and Wenger, who won League titles with the Gunners thinks the Reds could potentially hit the rocks against Rafa Benitez’s outfit.

“There’s still hope but they go to Newcastle,” Wenger told beIN Sports and cited on Football365. “Newcastle is not an easy place for Liverpool. I’m scared for Liverpool even with one game to go that Manchester City will already have won it but they will fight until the end.

“It looks like there’s a destiny that is against Liverpool. They dominated for such a long period in English football and suddenly from 89-90 until today, they cannot win the Premier League. Every time there is small things against them.”

Statistically, 91 points represent the best point tally in a season for record Premier League holders(13) – Man United, while the Reds could surpass Chelsea’s season’s best of 95 and still not win the title.

Liverpool will be in action on Wednesday night when they trade tackles with Barca in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final at Nou Camp.
