Manchester United a few moments ago emerged champions of the 2019 English Premiership League.
They finished tops with 98 points after beating Brighton 4-1 on the last day of the games. Man City scored a total of 95 goals and conceeded 23 during the season.
It was a superb finish for Manchester City. They were trailed by Liverpool which bagged 97 points after beating hard fighting Wolves.
The results have left Liverpool with the hopes of clinging the European Champions League where they will keep a date with Totenham Hotspurs in the finals.
Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyadh Mahrez, and Ilkay Gundogan all scored for Man City after Glen Murray had given the home side Brighton the lead on 25 minutes.
It was the first time a team has won back-to-back titles since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 2009.
City’s total of 98 points is the second highest haul in Premier League history, two shy of the 100 points Pep Guardiola’s men accrued last year.
In a remarkable season, Man City went toe-to-toe with Liverpool as both sides refused to bow down in the title race. City last dropped points in the league against Newcastle on January 29, some three-and-a-half months before lifting the title.
Liverpool’s 97 points, meanwhile, would have been enough to take top spot in every Premier League season bar the two most recent.
“I think it was the hardest and most satisfying,” Man City captain Vincent Kompany told Sky Sports, reflecting on his three previous titles with the club.
“Liverpool were exceptional. There didn’t deserve to be a loser. But I’m so happy for the team. We’ve got an incredible desire.”
