Manchester City have lifted the Premier League title on the last day of the season, after defeating Brighton in style with a 4-1 victory. In doing, so they’ve fended off the huge pressure posed by Liverpool, who finished second with just a point less than Pep Guardiola’s team.
For a fleeting moment, it appeared the Premier League crown could be heading towards Anfield when Brighton opened the scoring against Man City, per online sportsbooks in UK.
But the defending champions immediately responded with a goal of their own just a minute later, before going on to find the back of the net 3 more times to claim back-to-back titles – the first since Manchester United’s 2008/09 successful campaign.

Man City and Liverpool both pushed each other to perform their very best
Last season Man City clinched the Premier League title after recording an unprecedented 100 points in the campaign, which saw the squad dubbed, ‘the Centurions.’ This season they successfully defended their crown, albeit having collected only 2 points less relative to the previous season – a feat that’s truly unheard of for the English top flight, according to providers of internet betting in UK.
“I have to day congratulations to Liverpool of course. Thank you so much,” Guardiola commented while wearing the hard-earned winner’s medal around his neck.
“They helped to push us and to increase our standards from last season. To compete against this team pushed us to do what we have done. It’s incredible, 198 points in two seasons 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.”
Jurgen Klopp on the other hand reflected on the season that saw them collect a historic 97 points (the highest-ever for Liverpool) only to be left without a Premier League trophy at the very end, due to City’s incredible performances that were propelled by Liverpool’s pressure.
“People might say we could have done this or done that but not really, I don’t think (we could have done any more),” highlighted Klopp.“City were lucky in moments, we were lucky in moments. It was about staying in the race and believing and that’s what we did.”
“When your opponent is City, it’s difficult. They couldn’t get rid of us and we couldn’t get rid of them. Being second in the Premier League is not exactly what I wanted but we have to see it as the first step for this team. We have three weeks to prepare for the Champions League final – let’s give it a go.”
