Aguero seeks Champions League glory with City

Share

Second-placed Liverpool host Wolves and Manchester City travel to Brighton for the decider with a one-point lead.

They will enter next season hoping to improve their Champions League showing, while a third consecutive title will no doubt also be on their mind.

Liverpool's points tally of 97 is the third highest in Premier League history, behind only City this season and when they racked up 100 points in storming to the title for the first time under Guardiola previous year. We made such big steps.

"As long as Manchester City are around with their financial power, no team will pass them easily", Klopp said.

Guardiola's side broke a host of Premier League records in romping to the title last season, becoming the first team in English top-flight history to reach 100 points and finishing a record 19 points clear of Manchester United.

"I like our teams, I like the Chelsea team - there will be people who'll say, 'Who is the greatest?', but what they have done in terms of points, you can't deny".

Brighton's lead lasted just 83 seconds before Sergio Aguero equalised, and there were to be no more twists and turns after Aymeric Laporte headed them into the lead.

Liverpool's wait for a league title will now stretch to at least 30 years and the Champions League finalists will aim to end a seven-year wait for silverware of any kind against Tottenham on June 1. We want more and more.

Players took it in turns to hoist the Premier League trophy, with club captain Vincent Kompany and Guardiola last to lift it, together. But the enjoyment of the travelling Toon Army would have been tempered as they spent most of the afternoon imploring Rafael Benitez to stay and continue the job he has done in such fine fashion.

With the Nations League coming up this summer, followed by a European Championships with the final at Wembley in 2020, it would be ridiculous for Holland to switch that for a relegation battle. Next season we will play a different season.

"It's the toughest title I've won in all my career, by far", said the 48-year-old Spaniard after praising his pursuers Liverpool, who finished just a point behind in the highest-quality English title race ever witnessed.

"I'm not going to change my opinion on what we have done, but I know we will be judged". England are flying under this current coaching team who are developing a whole host of exciting young players who are not afraid of the big stage, as we saw previous year at the World Cup.
