Manchester City retained the Premier League title in style on Sunday, holding their nerve to come from behind and thrash Brighton to hold off a charging Liverpool after a nailbiting campaign.

Pep Guardiola’s team won 4-1 at Brighton to finish with 98 points — the second-highest total in Premier League history – as Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Anfield to finish a single, agonising, point adrift.

That points tally puts them second in the all-time total, trailing behind… well… themselves.

Vincent Kompany said Manchester City’s Premier League title win on Sunday was the “hardest” he had experienced after Pep Guardiola’s men held off Liverpool on a dramatic final day.

City won 4-1 on the south coast, with Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan on the scoresheet after Glenn Murray gave the home side a shock lead in the first half.

A 14th straight league win ensured Guardiola’s men pipped Liverpool by a solitary point as the Reds’ long wait to win the league continued despite a 2-0 victory over Wolves at Anfield that saw them post the third highest points tally in Premier League history.

“Back to back… I think it was the hardest, most tough Premier League ever,” Kompany told Sky Sports.

“Liverpool was exceptional. I don’t meant to rub it in, it is what it is, they didn’t deserve to lose.

“It makes me so much more happy that we played such a great team all season. We had our backs to the wall, we won at the Etihad and today we were able to stay in front.”
