Premier League : Manchester City defeats Brighton by 4-1 to retain the title
The Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool went till the last possible minute yet there were to be no last curves in what’s been an exciting story.
Regardless of going an objective down in the principal half, Man City held the title in the wake of crushing Brighton 4-1 at the Amex Stadium, which means Liverpool’s triumph against Wolves was futile.
It’s the first time a team has won consecutive titles since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 2009, and City’s aggregate of 98 is the second most elevated take in Premier League history – two short of the 100 points Pep Guardiola’s men gathered a year ago.
What exactly happened
Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez, and Ilkay Gundogan all scored for the guests after Glenn Murray had given the home side the lead on 25 minutes.
There was a transitory frenzy for City when Murray headed in from a corner to give Brighton a stunning lead, however, that was eradicated scarcely a moment later when Sergio Aguero opened the ball through Mat Ryan’s legs to draw level.
“We need to express gratitude to Liverpool and thank them as they pushed us to build our guidelines,”Pep Guardiola
“It’s mind-boggling, 98, to return to the back. We made the standard higher than last season and Liverpool helped us. To win this title we needed to win 14 out of a column. We couldn’t lose one point.
“It’s the hardest title we have won in the entirety of my vocation, by a long shot” Guardiola.
