    Close, but not close enough for Liverpool

    Close, but not close enough for Liverpool


    The Reds have fallen short of a first English domestic title since 1989-90, with Manchester City preserving their one point advantage on the final day of the Premier League with a 4-1 win at Brighton.

    Liverpool, who beat Wolves 2-nil, required a City slip-up and looked to be getting their wish when the Sky Blues fell behind after 27 minutes.

    But Sergio Aguero levelled 83 seconds later and City took a halftime lead before taking the game away in the second half.

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says they tried right to the end.

    He says he must congratulate Manchester City and they tried to make it as difficult as possible for them.

    City manager Pep Guardiola says it's special to retain the title.

    He says Liverpool made them better than last season.
