Majestic Man City thump Brighton to make it back to back Prem titles



Manchester City made it back to back Premier League titles after cruising to a 4-1 win at Brighton in the final game of the season.
Pep Guardiola’s side recovered from going behind to a Glenn Murray header to run out 4-1 winners and pip Liverpool to the crown.
Any title jitters were eased within 83 seconds of Murray’s 27th-minute opener as Sergio Aguero, scorer of the dramatic clincher in 2012, reprised that famous strike with an instant equaliser.
Further goals from Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan then started the party in the away end as Liverpool were forced to settle for a valiant second.

As it turned out Liverpool won their last nine but City’s 14-match winning streak, a record end to a top-flight season, ensured the Reds’ wait for the title will tick into a 30th year.
Over nine months and 38 games each, the two juggernauts clocked up 195 points between them as they disappeared over the horizon.
Liverpool’s final total of 97 would have seen them take the title at a canter in every other Premier League season, barring the last. Yet they still could not catch this incredible City side.
The football gods have had a busy week, and they took Sunday off. Live...
