Sadio Mane inspired Liverpool to victory against Wolves but it was not enough as Manchester City won at Brighton to seal the Premier League title.

The Senegalese hit an early opener to put the Reds top of the table temporarily.

But once Sergio Aguero cancelled out Glenn Murray’s goal, Aymeric Laporte soon put Pep Guardiola’s champions in front and back in control.

Jurgen Klopp’s side did eventually make it two, with Mane heading home another Trent Alexander-Arnold ball.

The win sees Liverpool end the season on 97 points: the most ever for a runner-up.

Here’s how the players at Anfield rated.
