Liverpool fans produced an incredible atmosphere at full-time of Wolves victory

The victory wasn't enough for Liverpool to win the Premier League title as they needed Brighton to force Manchester City to drop points, which didn't happen as the Citizens won 4-1.

And Scotland captain Robertson is confident Liverpool's key players will remain at Anfield for the long-term, making them perfectly placed to renew their rivalry with City for years to come. At that moment (when Liverpool fans celebrated Brighton's goal) it was a shock for everyone and Wolves were there.

Mane scored his 22nd strike of the season in the 81st minute, but there was not much in celebrations in the Merseyside sunshine.

Mane put Liverpool ahead in the 17th minute, meeting a low cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold and sweeping home from close range.

Rui Patricio parried a ferocious effort from Andrew Robertson as the noise around Anfield dampened with news of City leading at Brighton trickled down. But I really think there is more to come.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to ensure a share of the golden boot alongside Mane and Mohamed Salah, with Ashley Barnes responding for Burnley before Eddie Nketiah's stoppage-time third.

The last day of the season was always going to be tense.

Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at home in the Premier League on Sunday but unfortunately, that was not enough for them to win the trophy.

"As long as Manchester City are around with their financial power, no team will pass them easily", Klopp said. It is also the connection we have with the fans that helps us through tough, tough moments, through tough games.

"When your opponent is City, it's hard".

"Being second in the Premier League isn't what we wanted tonight but we'll take it".

"Everybody knows we will go again but if you really want something, you feel the disappointment as well".

"Players from around Europe will have seen the atmosphere this year and the type of football. We will go again, 100 per cent".

When Manchester City fell behind to Glenn Murray's header, they never panicked and that is why they are champions. During that time, City have amassed 198 points in two campaigns, setting the bar incredibly high.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo: We had a good game against a fantastic opponent.

"It's the end of the season".

However, City were level immediately through Sergio Aguero before Aymeric Laporte gave the Citizens the lead. The commitment, belief and ideas were there.
