Manchester City retained the Premier League title on Sunday, securing top spot with a 4-1 win on the final day of the season.
City finished with 98 points, one ahead of second-placed Liverpool, who finished the campaign with a 2-0 home victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Despite going a goal down in the first half, Man City retained the title after defeating Brighton 4-1 at the Amex Stadium, making Liverpool's victory against Wolves redundant.
Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Riyadh Mahrez, and Ilkay Gundogan all scored for the visitors after Glen Murray had given the home side the lead on 25 minutes.
It was the first time that a team has won back-to-back titles since Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in 2009.
City's total of 98 points is the second-highest haul in Premier League history, two shy of the 100 points Pep Guardiola's men accrued last year.
Following is a play-by-play report of the EPL 'Super Sunday', as it happened.
Long, long season ends
Back at Brighton, Pep embraces each and every one of his players, coaching staff, ball-boys — he would hug every fan if he had time — after a long, long season against worthy adversaries Liverpool. He knows what they have achieved as they prepare to lift the trophy as defending champions.
'You Will Never Walk Alone'
As proud as ever, Anfield rings out with 'You Will Never Walk Alone'. Liverpool fall just short with 97 points — the third-highest ever points tally in the English football league, but still they come up short. The Champions League final is nice little fall-back, mind. And if anyone can pick them up for that, Jurgen Klopp can.
CITY ARE CHAMPIONS
Manchester City successfully defend their title with a dominant 4-1 victory over Brighton. Liverpool won 2-0 over Wolves at Anfield, but despite all there efforts and only one loss all season, they came up one point short.
Man City P 38 GD 72 Pts 98
Liverpool P 38 GD 67 Pts 97
Goal for Liverpool!
It might be a bit meaningless now but Mane makes sure of the three points for Liverpool as he grabs his second against Wolves. 2-0. Silver linings and all that...
Start the beach party! City will be Premier League champions as Ilkay Gundogan adds the gloss to proceedings with a fine finish. Pep Guardiola finally allows himself a little smile!
Origi misses a golden chance to seal three points for Liverpool while they were on the ropes, and — down south — a sucker punch as Mahrez smashes into the top corner to put City 3-1 up. One hand and four fingers on the trophy???
Second half kicks off
The second 45s at Anfield and AMEX are similar to the first, with City looking for a killer goal against a wall of Brighton defenders, while Wolves slug away against Liverpool.
Hectic first halves
So, as it stands after a hectic first half (halves?) Man City P 38 GD 70 Pts 98 Liverpool P 38 GD 66 Pts 97 I'm pretty sure that will swing back and forth again in the next 45 minutes!
Wolves' Diogo smacks one off the Liverpool bar — and then City's Emerson does well to halt a Brighton free-kick with the last kick of the ball before half-time. Relax. For 10 mins at least!
Another GOAL for City!
And City go back top as it stands. Brilliant delivery from a free-kick on the right and the mighty Laporte rises miles above everyone else to power home what might be a vital, vital goal in the Premier League title destination. I can't breathe!
As soon as I write that, we are all square, Sergio Aguero — who else — restores parity and a little bit of calm at the AMEx with an immediate leveller!
Chaos as Brighton catch City off-guard. From a corner, Murray nods in at the front post !!! Hang on.....
What have City got?
They continue to pepper the Brighton defence with attacks but still they hold strong. Ryan has already made three key interventions.
First blood Liverpool as Sadio Mane sneaks in to strike and send Liverpool top of the table as it stands. Side-footed in off a Wolves defender.
Nervy starts by both potential champs. Jahanbakhsh goes just wide of Ederson's post after Bernardo is thwarted by a staunch Brighton defence. At Anfield, Liverpool probe but no end result so far.
Here goes nothing - well everything for City and Liverpool! The players are out, handshakes and sponsor photos done. Pep and Jurgen are in the dug-outs… Anfield is in full voice as ever, while the City fans have the beach balls ready for a title party on the beach in Brighton. Nervous much??? Here we go…

Only one point separates the record-breaking duo of Manchester City (95) and Liverpool (94) with the title trophy going down to the final 90 minutes across the country.
Defending champions City are away at Brighton, who have just survived the relegation battle, while Champions League finalists Liverpool are at home to surprise package Wolves.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds need victory at Anfield and need to hope Brighton can at least get a draw against Guardiola’s men.

So, how do fans feel before the game?
Remember, if City win, it’s all over; while Liverpool MUST win and hope City drop points on the South Coast of England against the Seagulls.
As a long-suffering Brighton fan, I have a good feeling about today. A draw is on the cards: 1-1.
I’m pretty nervous but there should be enough experience out there to get over the line.
Hopefully, Sergio Aguero can help us retain the title and steal the Golden Boot away from Mo Salah.
I can’t see it happening, but like you saw against Barca in the Champions League, you never know. We just need to do our job and hope City slip up.
