Manchester City Have Beaten Liverpool To The Premier League Title

Liverpool fans are devastated after Manchester City have won the Premier League title.

With the title race heading to the final day of the season, both sets of fans were left on the edge of their seats as their respective teams did battle at the top of the table.

What a time to be a neutral, eh?

Pep Guardiola's men travelled to the American Express Community Stadium for their clash against Brighton and Hove Albion, while Liverpool hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.

The reigning Premier League champions fell behind after Glenn Murray opened the scoring in the 27th minute, but Sergio Agüero immediately struck back for City in the 28th minute.

Before half-time, Aymeric Laporte stepped up and put Guardiola's men ahead.

Riyad Mahrez, who has received his fair share of criticism this season, put City 3-1 ahead in the 63rd minute before İlkay Gündoğan smashed in their fourth from a superb free-kick.

At Anfield, Sadio Mané opened the scoring in the first half and had the Reds going into half-time with a 1-0 lead over Wolves. The 27-year-old Senegalese winger completed his brace in the second half to seal a 2-0 victory for Liverpool.

With City's victory over Brighton, Guardiola has led his side to back-to-back Premier League titles and finished the season on 98 points.

Of course, City have already picked up the EFL Cup earlier this season after beating Chelsea on penalties, but they still have the chance to complete a domestic treble when they meet Watford next Saturday in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

Jürgen Klopp's men have finished second in the table on 97 points, and while they might have missed out on the sought-after domestic title, they could still end their season on a high note with some big silverware.

After all, Liverpool completed a sensational Champions League semi-final comeback against Barcelona to book their spot in the final.

The Reds will face Tottenham Hotspur at the Wanda Metropolitano on 1st June, with Klopp hoping to put behind the memories of last season's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid and have his side lift the trophy in Spain.

Was this the best title race in Premier League history?
