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

City responded to pressure with quiet defiance, just as they refused to surrender even when Liverpool were seven points clear in January.

But City came back to win convincingly at the Amex, meaning they retained the crown and Liverpool's 2-0 victory against Wolves counted for nothing.

Jurgen Klopp conceded Liverpool could not have done any more in their pursuit of the Premier League title.

Liverpool lost out on their first league title in 29 years to Manchester City, who bettered their tally of 97 points by one.

At that point, it was a four-way record.

The Reds may well have kept a valuable clean sheet against Barcelona in midweek but that has been a bit of a rarity recently, they have only kept three clean sheets (two of which came against Huddersfield and Cardiff) in their last eight league outings and they were less than impressive at the back against Newcastle last week, where they were breached twice.

Mane added a second goal in the 81st minute, again from a cross by Alexander-Arnold, to clinch a 30th win in 38 games for Liverpool in a remarkable season for Juergen Klopp's side that could yet end with it becoming European champion for the sixth time.

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

"I am very proud of this team, it's a very special team and I am very proud to be part of it", said Dutch defender Van Dijk.

"We wanted to write our own history and we did", Klopp told BBC Sport.

We can decide how we deal with that and which information we can take out of that, nobody else can decide that. But we want to win. "We are going to work hard again and hopefully try to do it".

Not only them because I have to say, a lot of people say about the Liverpool supporters that they are so desperate about winning the league and stuff like that, but how they followed this path, how they followed this way, is just incredible. But we can not ignore one team were better. "Together we are stronger", he said. This club is in the best moment for a long, long time and it will not end because there is one team with a point more.

The Liverpool narrative has changed dramatically since they humiliated Lionel Messi´s Spanish giants amid ecstatic scenes at Anfield.

Liverpool cruelly missed out despite finishing on 97 points, although they do have the Champions League final to look forward to.

"Sunday is our last Premier League game".

"They believe they will never get as good again, they will be disappointed and carry that dejection into next season".

Behind the front two, all the issues in the Premier League are virtually done and dusted.
