Manchester City retain Premier League title

Manchester City retain Premier League title

The quality and intensity of the title race was emphasised by City requiring a 14th successive league victory to finish a point above a Liverpool side chasing a first championship crown in 29 years as the top two finished with a record 195 points combined. Manchester City clocked up 98 points after 38 games to retain the Premier League title.

Mohamed Salah finished the Premier League season with a share of the coveted Golden Boot alongside Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. "Chelsea with one more year with Sarri will be better".

Yet Klopp insists his players won't dwell on their agonising near-miss for long because they have a chance for redemption in the Champions League final against Tottenham in Madrid on June 1.

But was quick to slam those who question the fact that Liverpool are yet to win the Premier League and haven't won the league title for 30 years. "Winning the Premier League wasn't in their compass because Manchester City won the last 14 games".

Cox said the key for players was knowing they did all they could and, by posting the highest points tally not to win the title in history, Liverpool have certainly done that. We gave everything. We got 97 points.

"We have made unbelievable big steps and I expect more to come - what that means in the end, I don't know".

Ruben Neves will be among those attracted by a possible move to Liverpool, says Stan Collymore, with the Wolves midfielder a good fit for Jurgen Klopp.

"We used the base from a year ago, but we have made a big step".

"This team is one of the best to have ever played for Liverpool but we play in a league with other very good teams and we have to accept that, no problem. We will go again", Klopp said.

"I am not anxious that this is as good as it can be".

Wolves were starting to show some endeavor too, but the crossbar denied them an equaliser before the interval when Matt Doherty beat Alisson Becker with a fine first-time strike. They couldn't get rid of us and we couldn't get rid of them.

"It makes me so much more happy that we played such a great team all season".

"It's also the mentality of the boys and the manager, setting us up how we want to play and sticking to our beliefs".
