The Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool went down to the wire until Manchester City took the trophy home on Sunday one point higher on the table than Liverpool.

Despite going a goal down in the first half, Man City retained the title after defeating Brighton 4-1 at the Amex Stadium, putting Liverpool’s victory against Wolves in vain.

Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez, and Ilkay Gundogan all scored for the visitors after Glenn Murray had given the home side the lead on 25 minutes.


It’s the first time a team has won back-to-back titles since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 2009, and City’s total of 98 points is the second highest haul in Premier League history — two shy of the 100 points Pep Guardiola’s men accrued last year.
