Liverpool beats Wolves, misses out on Premier League title

Liverpool beats Wolves, misses out on Premier League title

Liverpool had won 2-0 and finished a league campaign with 97 points - a total, up until this season, that was more than any other team had managed apart from last year's record-breaking Manchester City team.

Jurgen Klopp has challenged Liverpool to use the pain of their failed Premier League title bid as fuel to finish a remarkable season with Champions League glory. Being second in the Premier League is not what I wanted but we have to see it as the first step for this team. We made such big steps.

"I don't know what to say".

The Reds of the 2018/19 season are now officially the best team to never win the Premier League title but, whilst many will be unhappy with that honour, fans should look back with positivity. "Always after a good year we lost key players [in the past] but we won't so we'll be there again". And to be on this road and also qualify for the Champions League final is pretty special.

Having led the league in shots on target two seasons in a row, and now with two consecutive Golden Boots in tow, there's no arguing that Salah is one of the best scorers of goals in the Premier League, and the best scorer of points in the Goal game.

Klopp concedes City's consistency and spending power will make them hard to catch in future, but he is confident Liverpool's time will come given their improvement over the past 12 months. "We will fight next season for the title".

"Ninety-seven points was incredible".

He said: "This title race between City and Liverpool was wonderful for the competition and everyone who loves the game".

Wolves already have clinched seventh place in the Premier League, and their 57 points are the most any newly promoted team has earned in the Premier League since Ipswich's 66 in 2000-01. We will go again, 100 per cent. But here, that's how it is, no problem with that because that's the competition we are in.

The Champions League is a little bit different, I don't think you can expect to go for a second time into the Champions League final.

Fans were celebrating in the Anfield stands as news filtered through of a goal from Brighton, but it was a false alarm.

Abu Dhabi-owned City look nearly certain to finish off the job and Guardiola said he has so much faith in his players that a pre-match team-talk will not be necessary.

To underline the two clubs´ dominance, third-placed Chelsea only have 71 points going into their final game against Leicester City. In any other season (bar last season), they would have been champions.

Guardiola´s side have racked up 91 goals this season, but three of their past four wins have been 1-0 victories, including the nervy match against Leicester on Monday settled by a Vincent Kompany strike.
