Manchester City Won the Battle, But Liverpool Can Still Win the War

Manchester City Won the Battle, But Liverpool Can Still Win the War”

After a pulsating campaign, we now look at the men in charge who helped inspire their teams to wonderful seasons.

"Liverpool were exceptional this year and I don't mean to rub it in - it is what it is - they didn't deserve to be second this year, but it only makes me that much more happy that we've been up against such a good team and when our backs were against the wall we kept finding the results". Liverpool will maintain and so we have to be better.

6,324,237 people entered the competition this year. In tennis, basketball, golf, the big athletes they want more and more.

But those cheers were quickly muted, with Guardiola's side level just 83 seconds later, Sergio Aguero staying onside and keeping his cool to finish after a brilliant ball from David Silva. "I will definitely buy one!"

Aguero buried the visitors' first chance, and after Laporte headed in from a corner 10 minutes later, Guardiola's men never relented.

City ended the season with 98 points, just two shy of last season's record-breaking 100, while Liverpool's 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers saw them end on 97 - by far the largest tally for a Premier League runners-up.

Oasis star and diehard City fan Noel Gallagher joined his heroes in the changing room at Brighton.

City were incredible over the final third of the season, and are fully deserving of a second title on the trot.

"Yes, there are weaknesses", he said.

"To compete against this team pushed us to do what we have done".

City remains on course for an English treble, having already collected a League Cup and preparing for the FA Cup final against Watford on Saturday.

When asked if his side will go down as the best in English history, Guardiola simply said being in the conversation is all anyone can ask.

"The first one in 2012 happened in the last minute but this was constantly knowing you have to win and perform. We accept the challenge and next season we will be back stronger, I promise you".

"In 15, 20, 25 years maybe people will say these guys did it with a lot of points, but they play really well". "It is like a book or movies, if it sustains the passage of time and people watch the same movie or read the same book".

Brighton appointed FA technical director Dan Ashworth in the same role earlier this year and in February he said his aim was to keep Hughton in a job for as long as possible.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, who shared the Premier League Golden Boot award with team-mate Mane and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after they all scored 22 goals, said: "We only lost one [league] game all season".
