City manager Pep Guardiola admitted Liverpool had given them their toughest test, forcing them to win their final 14 league matches to finish on 98 points - the second highest total in the Premier League era.
But not before he plays in the Champions League final for a second year running, as Liverpool take on Premier League rivals Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid on 1 June. "We have to be very close to perfection to win the Premier League". To deliver 97 points and still not end up winning it is ludicrous, absolute madness, but it just goes to show you how good Man City are.
"This year we tried for the first time [to win the title] and I really think that it was quite impressive for the first time", he said. We made unbelievably big steps and I really expect more to come, that's the truth.
"It's incredible what they did all season and today with a unusual situation", said Klopp. At that moment (when Liverpool fans celebrated Brighton's goal) it was a shock for everyone and Wolves were there.
