Celebrations then broke out around Anfield when it emerged that Brighton had scored against City, and there were another couple of false alarms as fake rumours of further goals spread.

With all twenty Premier League teams in action it was a day for keeping an eye on two football games and Sadio Mane's opener was matched by Brighton scoring early against Man City, but the Champions powered back to end any remote Liverpool hopes.

Tottenham Hotspur, who will face Liverpool in the Champions League final on 1 June, ended the campaign in fourth.

It has been suggested that the void created by Philippe Coutinho's departure to Barcelona in January 2018 has not been filled , despite Liverpool challenging for a domestic crown and reaching another Champions League final.

"This team is one of the best to have ever played for Liverpool 100 per cent".

"This club is in the best moment for a long time and it will not end because another team has one more point".

"Of course we brought new players in but the majority are the same and they made insane steps. That's the plan from tomorrow on".

People might say we could have done this or that but not really, I don't think (we could have done any more).

"The team made so many big steps in the a year ago", he said.

"It's also the mentality of the boys and the manager, setting us up how we want to play and sticking to our beliefs". I can read all the numbers. Being second in the Premier League is not exactly what I wanted but we have to see it as the first step for this team. Always after a good year we lost key players [in the past] but we won't [this time] so we'll be there again.

Reeling in City won't be a piece of cake for Klopp and the 51-year-old conceded Guardiola's group present a unique challenge.

"As long as City are around with the quality that they have and the financial power and all that stuff, it's not that any other team will pass them easily".

Klopp did not seem disappointed by the failure as much as he seemed ready for the next season, saying: "The team made so many big steps in the previous year".

Rather than drowning their sorrows, all the talk was of Madrid and the chance for another magical day in a season that featured so many highs.

"We've got clever footballers, everybody sees that".
