Pep Guardiola’s men won their second consecutive Premier League title after a stunning win against Brighton to end Liverpool’s hopes after an impressive campaign for the Reds.

The Manchester club started the match knowing that a win would ensure what would be the first time a team wins the title for the second consecutive time since Manchester United 10 years ago. Liverpool at the same time were playing against Wolves at Anfield.

City were shocked at the beginning of the match after they conceded the opener from Brighton when Glenn Murray gave the Seagulls the lead at the Amex Stadium. However, City scored the equalizer just 83 seconds later thanks to an Aguero low-driven shot past goalkeeper Matthew Ryan.

The away side then scored the goal which gave them the lead just before half-time when Aymeric Laporte headed the ball past the Brighton defence.

Then, throughout the whole second half of the match, Brighton were not able to react and City then ended scored another two goals thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan who produced a spectacular free-kick goal towards the end of the match.

Last year, they managed to reach the 100-point mark which was a great achievement for them but even though this year they haven’t managed to repeat themselves, it could be argued that this was a much bigger achievement given the heated battle with Liverpool for the title week-in-week-out.

In the end, Liverpool came just a point away from winning their first league title in 29 years.

Up next for City is the FA Cup final on 18 May when they will attempt to become the first team to win the domestic treble for the first time in the history of English of football.

City’s achievement today, completed with that astonishing 14-game win towards the winning post, is underscored by the fact they saw off a Liverpool side that lost just once this season – to City – and amassed 97 points.

This is a magnificent feat by Guardiola and Manchester City.

The best team always ends as Premier League champions – and no matter how superbly Liverpool have performed, they came up against a truly outstanding team that was just one point better.
