Man City retain Premier League title!
Despite going a goal down in the first half of their final Premier League game of the season, Manchester City retained the title after defeating Brighton 4-1 at the Amex Stadium.
Liverpool, having pushed for the top spot till the very end, defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 to finish second, just one point behind the champions.
Man City is the first team to win back-to-back titles since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 2009, and their total of 98 points is the second highest haul in Premier League history, two shy of the 100 points they were able to accumulate last year.
Following a remarkable season which concluded with 14 consecutive wins for the club, Man City boss Pep Guardiola told Sky Sports, “We have to say congratulations to Liverpool and thank you so much — they pushed us to increase our standards.
“It’s incredible, 98 points, to go back to back. We made the standard higher last season and Liverpool helped us. To win this title we had to win 14 in a row. We couldn’t lose one point.
“It’s the toughest title we have won in all my career, by far.”
