Manchester City fans celebrate Premier League win

Monday, 13 May, 2019

Pep Guardiola said Manchester City's 2018/19 Premier League success was the toughest title triumph of his illustrious managerial career.

Not as many watch the final game of the Premier League season. This season we had an incredible opponent, so congratulations Liverpool as well for this incredible season but we did it.

"It is therefore fitting that we will return home to Manchester this evening, to celebrate our second successive Premier League title together, with our team and our fans". Liverpool take on Wolves at Anfield, dreaming of a second dramatic turnaround in a week after the memorable 4-0 win against Barcelona on Tuesday that propelled them into the Champions League final.

Jurgen Klopp has vowed that Liverpool "will make the next step" after finishing just one point behind an incredible Man City in the Premier League this time out.

Centre-back Aymeric Laporte gave the guests the lead at the 38th minute after heading in a corner by Algerian playmaker Riyadh Mahrez.

"We got 97 points", Salah told Sky Sports after Liverpool defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 on the final day of the season at Anfield. The Reds held a 10 point league atop the table just after Christmas, but City slowly closed the gap as Spurs eventually fell away.

"He respects Liverpool an very bad lot but the title is in City's hands".

Their teams have been so good they are both more than 20 points ahead of third-placed Chelsea.

"We know it, but we accept the challenge and I promise you we will come back and I have the feeling we will be stronger next season".

Spaniard Guardiola can now became the first manager to claim the English domestic treble if City beat Watford in next week's FA Cup final, having already scooped up the League Cup. However, there are question marks over the lavishly gifted attacker, who has lost his place as a first-choice starter during the run-in - Guardiola preferring Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva to provide the wide support to Sergio Aguero in his front three. Neither team dropped a single point over the last two months. We couldn't lose one point.

While the final day wasn't quite as dramatic as it could have been, it will do little to ease Liverpool fans' heartache. We didn't think we could close to the points total we managed last season.

"After the game we are going to sit with him and talk", confirmed Guardiola.
