A 4-1 win over Brighton today granted Manchester City the needed points to retain the English Premier League (EPL) title, one point ahead of Liverpool, who defeated Wolverhampton 2-0.

Guardiola's has now won eight league titles in his 10 seasons as a manager, but he said this is the "toughest" due to Liverpool pushing his City side all of the way which made them better.

Liverpool have been fantastic all season as they've lost just once in the Premier League, but they still find themselves trailing City by a solitary point and it'll stay that way unless the Seagulls can do the Reds a huge favour.

But, Neville got drinks thrown in his face from City fans as he crossed them on what turned out to be an incredible final day of the Premier League campaign. "That's clear", he said.

It is certainly hard to escape the feeling that City have punched well below their considerable weight in the Champions League and it is one of those great curiosities that a man who gets it so right week in, week out domestically has suffered as many personnel and tactical aberrations in Europe as he has in recent seasons. You have to deal with setbacks. That is the competition we are in. City got the points they have because we were there. Neither team dropped a single point over the last two months. But the big prize eluded them once again. "It's only the first step".

Liverpool's wait for a league title will now stretch to at least 30 years and the Champions League finalists will aim to end a seven-year wait for silverware of any kind against Tottenham on June 1.

City took the title with perhaps the deepest squad the Prem has ever seen, but Liverpool rode them all the way to the bitter end.

Over at the Amex, Pep Guardiola made a point of removing his favourite cuddly cardigan, the one with the floppy hood and the big pockets which, were it combined with a knitted chullo bought on Etsy, would give him the air of an extremely stoned first-year uni student.

Manchester City were 1-0 down at Brighton, Glenn Murray the unlikely hero after a mundane glancing header.

Wolves keeper Rui Patricio was alert to keep out a 20-metre blast from left-back Andy Robertson and Mohamed Salah volleyed over the bar from the edge of the area.

Liverpool's only loss was to City at Etihad Stadium on January 3 and the team hasn't dropped any points since March 3, a 0-0 stalemate at Merseyside neighbour Everton that completed a run of four draws in six league games in a five-week span.

Rafa's team have been on live TV more times (19) than any other club outside the top six and that pushes them into the top half.
