RIYAD MAHREZ has claimed Liverpool "hate" Manchester City after they were pipped to the Premier League title again.
Pep Guardiola's side sensationally fought back from two goals down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 at the Etihad to seal a fourth Prem crown in five seasons.
At Anfield, Liverpool beat Wolves 3-1 but were ultimately left disappointed as they finished one point behind rivals City.
The end of the season mirrored that of the 2018/19 campaign when Liverpool missed out on the Premier League title by a single point.
And Mahrez feels Jurgen Klopp's men – whose only Prem title triumph came in 2020 – are sick of the sight of the Sky Blues.
Speaking to French TV channel Canal+, the Algerian said: "Liverpool are a mad team, they are a superb team… I know they hate us [laughs].
