Richard Scudamore believes current Premier League season is the competition's best ever

Outgoing Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore believes the current season is the competition's best ever.

Sunday is the final day of the campaign and will see either Manchester City or Liverpool crowned champions in what has been an unprecedented title race.

City have won their last 13 Premier League matches and will clinch back-to-back titles with victory at Brighton. Liverpool have lost only once all season - against Pep Guardiola's team in January - and have won their last eight league games but go into the final round of matches a point behind.

Jurgen Klopp's side need to beat Wolves at Anfield and hope that City drop points if they are to win a first Premier League crown and become champions for the first time since 1990.

"When you look at what the Premier League has done this season, the title race is unprecedented," Scudamore told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme.

"The idea that Manchester City or Liverpool will walk away second with that amount of points is incredible and they would've won it in any other year.

"Then you add the European feats achieved by the Premier League teams this season with all-English Champions League and Europa League finals and it is hard to think of a season that has been better."

Kevin Keegan, a Liverpool icon as a player and a former Manchester City manager, thinks the strength in depth of Guardiola's squad will be the difference in the final reckoning.

"Man City's reserve team, if you can call it that, would probably finish in the top four in the Premier League," said the 68-year-old. "On the bench they have got players who are better than some of those the other top four clubs have playing in their starting XI. They have got a lot of invention and energy even on the bench.

"I can't see City going to Brighton and not winning a game they need to win for the title. I think both City and Liverpool will win and we'll be talking about how a team with 97 points can't win the league.

"It's usually over by now and the players are on holiday on the beach - 80-odd points is usually enough.

"It's an incredible situation and Liverpool will probably not win the league and that's very sad in some ways. I guess compensation would be beating Tottenham in the Champions League final."
