It was the culmination of a superb season for City and, speaking after the success, Guardiola insisted his side are far from done winning titles just yet.

But the Sky Blues roared back to win, 4-1, holding off second place Liverpool - which beat Wolverhampton in its own 2018-19 finale - to capture its second consecutive English title and fourth in the last eight years.

Jurgen Klopp has said that there is a role at Anfield for Divock Origi next season after some heroics at crucial points of the season, according to the Sunday People, page 56, Sunday 12 May.

They also lost just one league match - crucially at City in January - had two of the Premier League's three joint-top scorers in Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, while goalkeeper Alisson Becker claimed the Golden Glove for 21 clean sheets, one better than City counterpart Ederson.
