Man City champions: Where do Pep Guardiola’s 2019 side rank among all-time Premier League winners after edging Liverpool to title

The Blues beat the Reds by a point to back up their 100-point season and successfully defend their title

Premier League top goalscorer

Manchester City’s centurions, Manchester United’s treble winners, Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea or Arsenal’s Invincibles?

There have been some great champions, but now this year’s City will join the debate as to who is the greatest after edging an outstanding Liverpool side.

This year has lacked twists and turns until the very end, but both sides produced relentless winning streaks throughout the season in pursuit of glory.

After Sadio Mane’s early strike and Glenn Murray’s opener, City had to dig deep to secure the title, but Sergio Aguero equalised within 83 seconds and then Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan scored to ensure they eased home.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds now turn their attention to the Champions League final against Tottenham.

Here, Miguel Delaney ranks all 27 champions.
