Man City crowned champions
Manchester City earned their second successive Premier League title on Sunday.
The 2018/19 title race went right down to the wire, with it all still to play for on the final day of the season.
The Sky Blues needed to beat Brighton to ensure they were champions.
Failing that, Man City needed Liverpool to drop points against Wolves.
The final-day fixtures certainly got off to a nervy start for City, as Sadio Mane put Liverpool 1-0 up early on vs Wolves.
This was followed by Glen Murray putting the Seagulls 1-0 up at the Amex.
However, City responded just 83 seconds later through Sergio Aguero.
They then went on to bag another three, securing both the victory and the title.
Back 2 Back Premier League Champions!
We reigned and we retained!

After such a harsh end to the season for Liverpool, it is hard not to feel slightly sorry for them.
Mohamed Salah has since shared his feelings on losing the title race by such a short margin.
The Liverpool attacker, who finished the season as joint-top scorer, described the feeling as ‘bittersweet’.
It feels bittersweet now but the season isn’t over. I want to say thank you to my teammates, coaches, and to the fans. And fans, please bring Anfield to Madrid. pic.twitter.com/VaWqs1YKDb
