Challenges Man City - Liverpool Title Race Challenge

Recommended Posts


Man City - Liverpool Title Race - Challenge

The sun has set on another Premier League season and this particular one saw one of the most exciting title races the English top flight has ever seen.

Both Manchester City and Liverpool have relentlessly gone about their business with the lead changing hands what seemed to be every week. Despite Liverpool having it wrapped up in December as usual in the end it was the Blues who won their 6th league title despite Liverpool finishing on 97 points which would be enough to win the league 99 times out of 100 you would have thought.

Liverpool had a 9 point gap going into the new year but a loss to their title rivals saw the start of a period of dropped points, but even after that they picked back up again and forced City to win a remarkable 14 straight matches to win the title. Both teams still have a major final to look forward to as well, Liverpool will take on Spurs in their second consecutive Champions League final whilst City face Watford in the FA Cup final looking for a domestic treble.

With both squads so far ahead of the rest in England this season I've put together a challenge to commemorate it.

The Challenge

If there is one criticism of the two squads it is now expensively assembled they are. It will be your job to put together a "similar" squad, for whichever team you choose, but for a fraction of the price. It's your choice whether you choose to go with City or Liverpool.

You won't be able to use any of the players from either team, with the exception of the club captains. That means you can keep Jordan Henderson if you choose Liverpool, or Vincent Kompany if you go for City.

Then you will be tasked with rebuilding both squads, but for a fraction of the price. The challenge will consist of you directly replacing each player from 18/19's version of the strongest/most used starting XI's, but only spending a maximum of £10M on each player. Each player you buy to replace the listed players has to have the same nationality as the player they are replacing. Example - You go for Liverpool and buy Leroy Fer for £5M to replace Wijnaldum.

And then the backup players. You will only be permitted to spend a maximum of £10M on the whole of the rest of the squad, which includes all the substitutes and reserves. These can be any nationality.

So, £10M maximum on a player that matches this description:


  • (Ederson) GK - Brazil
  • (Walker) DR - England
  • (Laporte) DC - France
  • (Zinchenko) DL - Ukraine
  • (Fernandinho) DMC - Brazil
  • (Gundogan) MC - Germany
  • (De Bruyne) MC - Belgium
  • (Bernardo Silva) AMR - Portugal
  • (Aguero) ST - Argentina
  • (Sterling) AML - England


  • (Allison) GK - Brazil
  • (Alexander-Arnold) DR - England
  • (Van Dijk) DC - Holland
  • (Matip) DC - Cameroon
  • (Robertson) DL - Scotland
  • (Fabinho) DMC - Brazil
  • (Wijnaldum) MC - Holland
  • (Salah) AMR - Egypt
  • (Firmino) ST - Brazil
  • (Mane) AML - Senegal

And a further £10M on the whole of the rest of the squad. Therefore your whole squad will be build for no more than £120M.

All your replacements have to have a shade of green in the position they are replacing.


This is a simple pass or fail challenge. No points system. The aim is to win the quadruple (Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League).

Looking at the nationalities it's clear to see that there are some obscure ones in the Liverpool team. So, if you want it easier then go with City, but if you want a challenge them look to Merseyside ;)


You all know the usual rules that apply. No cheating, editing, reloading etc. Screenshots will be required, a career thread is recommended for us all to enjoy.

 Just a few things to clear up:

  • You can only keep Henderson (Liverpool) or Kompany (City) from the original squads.
  • Each listed player has to be replaced by someone of the same nationality and cannot cost more than £10M. The replacements have to have a shade of green in that position.
  • Your subs and reserves can only cost £10M between them. It's a maximum of £120M spent overall.
  • You don't have to play that XI every game - that's what the subs/reserves are for.
  • There is a leaderboard below. You will only get on it if you win the quadruple. Note - Due to it being quite a bit harder to complete it with Liverpool, doing so will put you above a member who has completed the challenge with City.
