The great big quiz of Liverpool's 2018/19 Premier League Season

The great big quiz of Liverpool's 2018/19 Premier League Season

Pep Guardiola's team won 4-1 at Brighton to finish with 98 points - the second-highest total in Premier League history - as Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Anfield to finish a single, agonising, point adrift.

"It was the toughest league title in all my career".

However, just 81 seconds later showed up Sergio AGÜERO.

Laughter nearly immediately gave way to groans after Sergio Aguero's equaliser, followed soon after by Aymeric Laporte's header which put City 2-1 ahead.

Ilkay Gundogan then blasted home a free-kick to put the result beyond doubt. As José Mourinho has recently been at pains to point out, Liverpool have been patient with the German, entrusting him to deliver success in the long term and affording him time to transform them into a formidable force, one dripping in team spirit and class, from Andy Robertson to Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mané.

"Undoubtedly, this has been one of the most hard decisions I have had to make as chairman of Brighton, but ultimately one I have made due to how we struggled in the second half of the season". "We had our backs to the wall, we won at the Etihad and today we were able to stay in front".

This was City's fourth league title in eight seasons and Manchester native Dave Reade, 37, said the tables have turned on their fierce rivals Manchester United.

Despite the Reds earning an awesome 97 points and losing just one game all season, City were just that bit better in the end.

Despite missing out on the top-four, Unai Emery's men can still qualify for the Champions League if they beat Chelsea in the Europa League final at the end of the month. Liverpool has won five, including 2005, and could move up to third place all-time with their sixth title.

"We're in the final now and we need to take that one step further that we didn't take last season", Robertson said, referring to Liverpool's defeat by Real Madrid in last season's Champions League final. We gave everything. We got 97 points.

"We had an unbelievable season".

Guardiola, as successful as he is, has adapted his famed "tiki-taka" short-passing style for the Premier League, blending pace and power into his possession-based blueprint.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp praised City but vowed his side would be back.

He replaced Sami Hyypia at Albion in December 2014 with Brighton just above the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone - and took them to automatic promotion within two seasons ahead of one of the pre-season favourites, his former club Norwich.

In the movie "The Truman Show", fans of the fake reality TV show wear badges asking, 'How will it end?' The final day of the Premier League campaign has that kind of feel about it.
