Liverpool hopes dashed as triumphant Man City come back to win Premier League

For a time, it looked like Manchester City would infamously blow the Premier League as they somehow went down 2-0 at home to Aston Villa with only 10 minutes remaining.

Liverpool had gone behind early to Wolves but rallied to 1-1, meaning another goal for them would have secured the title.

However, while Liverpool was able to grab a 3-1 win in the end, City also added three late goals, with two from Ilkay Gundogan and another from Rodri being enough to top the league.

Elsewhere, Leeds United stayed up with a 94th-minute goal from Jack Harrison earning a 2-1 win at Brentford, while rivals Burnley fell 2-1 at home to Newcastle United.

That saw Burnely fall to the second tier of the football pyramid, joining Watford and Norwich City in the Championship next season.

Arsenal were 5-1 winners over Everton, who only had just secured their own Premier League survival, but north London rivals Spurs finished fourth and took the Champions League spot with a 5-0 win against Norwich City.

Elsewhere, Ralf Rangnick's final game in charge at Manchester United ended in a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, but it was enough to secure Europa League football with Conference action now David Moyes' reward for seventh place, as West Ham lost 3-1 to Brighton.

Chelsea won 2-1 against Watford going into an uncertain summer, but with the third spot safe, and Leicester beat Southampton 4-1 in the day's dead rubber.

Well that's a blow for Jurgen Klopp.

Multiplex is go

Just pretend every update comes with a Ligue 1-style 'dingaling' to make it more exotic. The games have now kicked off.

What do Liverpool need?

For City, it's easy: do better than Liverpool.

If Guardiola's men beat Aston Villa then there's nothing that Liverpool can do to win.

Draw, and Liverpool have to beat Wolves, and then they are champions.

If City loses, they need to do so by six goals for Liverpool to get the point to be sufficient. Got it? Good.

Perhaps with one eye on the Champions League final, Klopp has left his two best players on the bench. Divock Origi is also out with an injury.
