The mood in Anfield was relatively cheerful at the end of the Wolves loss which was overshadowed by Manchester City's title-clinching 4-1 victory at Brighton.

Jurgen Klopp admits it will be hard to stop Manchester City dominating the Premier League but insists his Liverpool team are one of the best in history and very much up for the fight.

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.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah finished at the top of the goal-scoring charts after the Liverpool FC duo both finished with 22 goals.

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.

However, the exact number of the company's Starlink satellites that would be aboard the Falcon 9 rocket had been a mystery. Musk has predicted the network will be able to go live in the mid-2020s once about 800 satellites have been launched.

This clearly was a huge blow for all the Liverpool players given that they had lost only a single game this season in the league. "We had a great season", Salah told beIN SPORTS.

"This team is not a finished article. We will go again", Klopp said.

"It's clear we were lucky in moments, like City were".

De Ligt has been in sensational form for Ajax and was titanic in the Champions League and were seconds away from a final before Spurs ace Lucas Moura scored at the death.

The Reds fell agonisingly short in 2018-19, with just one point separating Klopp's side from eventual champions Manchester City.

"Liverpool this year are far better than I imagined, they have done far more than I ever imagined".

That, ultimately, cost Liverpool the title.
