Manchester City retained their English Premier League title after surviving a scare to come from behind and outclass Brighton 4-1 at the Amex Stadium today.

Pep Guardiola’s side is the first team to retain the crown since Manchester United 10 years ago. Manchester City may not have repeated the 100 points that won the title last season but this was arguably an even sweeter success given the season-long battle with Liverpool, to end retain the crown with 98 points one point ahead of second placed Liverpool.

However, Liverpools 2-nil over Wolves at Anfield was not enough to earn the Reds the premiership title they last won 29 years ago, thus in 1991.
