Liverpool fall short in title bid


Liverpool fall short in title bid

Liverpool came up just short in a bid to win the Premier League title, despite closing out a superb season with a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday (May 12). Sadio Mane's 21st and 22nd league goals of the season weren't enough to prevent the Reds from finishing runners-up thanks to Manchester City's 4-1 win away to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Liverpool's bid for a first Premier League title and a first top-flight triumph in 29 years ended in failure despite a final-day victory over Wolves.

In the 'as it stands' table, the Reds were top for 21 first-half minutes, only for Manchester City to recover from falling behind at Brighton to record a convincing 4-1 victory.

Sadio Mane scored from close range after 17 minutes and again after 81 to join Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the Premier League's top scorer on 22 goals.

Liverpool keeper Alisson was confirmed as the Golden Glove winner with 21 clean sheets.

The victory was Liverpool's ninth in a row and their 30th overall in the league. They finished on 97 points, the third-highest top-flight total in English football history - behind Man City's title triumphs this season (98) and last season (100).
