With both Manchester clubs on the list achieving the quadruple without winning the UEFA Champions League, Liverpool will be the most successful English Club by winning the English Football League, FA Cup, English Premier League, and UEFA Champions League, thus, completing a domestic clean sweep.

This also means that Liverpool may/will compete for more trophies in the following season, namely:

- FA Community Shield (a competition played by the Premier League winners and FA Cup winners)

- UEFA Super Cup (a competition played by the winners of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa Cup).

- FIFA Club World Cup (a competition played by winners of all confederation's top tournament winners).

Will Liverpool win the Quadruple?

Can Bid Farewell to Manchester United's Famous Treble Winning Season?

Every team has its famous moments, for instance, Arsenal Fc is known to English Football as the only "Invincibles" after completing the 2003/2004 season unbeaten in all matches and are by far, the only team in England to be awarded the Golden Premier League trophy. Liverpool nearly achieved the same feat in their 2019/2020 title-winning season.

Manchester United are the most successful club in the Premier League with 20 league titles to their name, but their 1999 treble-winning season is possibly the best achievement according to Manchester United fans.

Manchester City was famous for winning the domestic treble, winning the English Premier League, English League Cup, and FA Cup in one season. That's a domestic clean sweep.

Liverpool is currently the most successful English team in terms of trophies, with 67 competitive honors won, just one more than Manchester United. A quadruple will bring the whole landscape of English Football to a new level.

Conclusion - Winning the Quadruple just gives us more bragging rights!

Manchester City and Real Madrid could still spoil the party for Liverpool Fc, as Liverpool is 1 point behind Manchester City in the league, surprises may happen at any point, together with Real Madrid's threat in the UEFA Champions League final.
