Newly published data debunks major online claim regarding Manchester City and Liverpool



| Last Updated:


Data has revealed that Manchester City’s Premier League finale dominated TV viewership, contrary to recent claims on social media.

Pep Guardiola’s side claimed a record-breaking fourth successive Premier League title on Sunday afternoon, beating West Ham United 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium to win the league for a sixth time in seven years.

Phil Foden’s emphatic first-half brace and a second-half strike from Rodri to restore the Blues’ two-goal lead helped Manchester City surpass the 90-point mark and clinch the Premier League ahead of both Arsenal and Liverpool.

Manchester City won the league ahead of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal by two points, and finished nine points ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, despite the Merseyside club playing a significant role in the overall battle for the trophy.

The Cityzens are unbeaten across their last 35 games in all competitions, with the streak helping Manchester City to Premier League glory, as well as FIFA Club World Cup success and an Emirates FA Cup Final.

Sunday’s Premier League title was the Blues’ third trophy of the campaign, and City will bid to lift their fourth trophy this weekend, when Manchester City face Manchester United in the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.

Manchester City are unbeaten since early December, and drew with both Liverpool and Arsenal during the Premier League title run-in, with a 1-1 draw at Anfield and 0-0 draw against the Gunners in east Manchester.

Both Manchester City and Liverpool’s final Premier League game’s of the campaign were aired on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, with Liverpool’s clash with Wolves also the last match of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure at Anfield.

Despite events on Merseyside, Liverpool ECHO relay data from Sky Sports, revealing that Manchester City’s game claimed a bigger audience split, with 54% of viewership compared to 39% watching Liverpool, contrary to some claims on social media.

Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Everton at the Emirates Stadium was aired on rival channel TNT Sports, with the north London club unable to win the Premier League title as a result of the Blues’ win over West Ham.
