Manchester City have retained the Premier League title following a 4-1 win against Brighton.
Pep Guardiola’s side entered the final day of the season knowing that three points would be enough, and they managed just that.
It wasn’t straightforward, though. City fell behind in the first half through Glenn Murray’s header.
But goals from Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan earned City the victory they needed and the celebrations promptly followed.
Spare a thought for Liverpool, who collected 97 points and lost just one game all season – yet still missed out.
They weren’t to know it, but City needed to win their final 14 league games to be champions. And, extraordinarily, they managed just that.
So it’s two league titles in a row for Guardiola, who has taken to English football extremely well.

City dominated last season, winning a record-breaking 100 points, and they didn’t let their stands slip this campaign.
And one man who has played a huge part in their success is Raheem Sterling.
Sterling’s development under Guardiola has been phenomenal and he’s finished the season with 17 goals and 10 assists in the league.
The 24-year-old has reacted to City’s latest triumph with a brilliant Twitter post, sharing the ‘Ah sh**, here we go again’ meme from Grand Theft Auto.
