    Despite winning their game 2-0 against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool’s bid for a 1st Premier League title ended in failure.

    The Reds were on top in the table, but Manchester City recovered from falling behind at Brighton to record a convincing 4-1 victory.

    Sadio Mane scored after 17 minutes and again after 81 to join Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the Premier League’s top scorer on 22 goals.

    Meanwhile, Liverpool keeper Alisson was confirmed as the Golden Glove winner with 21 clean sheets.

    This was Liverpool’s 9th successive win and their 30th overall in the league.

    Liverpool finished on 97 points, the third-highest top-flight total in English football history.
