Liverpool’s Mo Salah reacts to losing Premier League to Man City

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.

Liverpool the best losers

After beating Wolves 2-0, Liverpool. meanwhile, became the best ever runners-up in the Premier League title race.

The 97 points accumulated by Jurgen Klopp’s men would have been enough to win the title in 25 of the 27 Premier League seasons.

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’.
