Liverpool loses out on the Premier League title, in spite of defeating Wolves

liverpool vs wolves premier league

With just 15 minutes remaining, Manchester City was trailing 2-0 at Aston Villa at home. Liverpool understood that a win over Wolves would ensure a 20th league title for Merseyside.

Anfield was victorious 3-1. The miracle in Manchester really did not work out for the Reds sadly.

The historic quadruple pursuit ends. Also, the chance of getting a domestic treble has concluded. Nevertheless, it should be noted that Liverpool did not really hold the best spot in Sunday’s remarkable finale to the Premier League season.

Manchester City was defeated by Liverpool by one point. Goals from Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson and Mohamed Salah made sure Liverpool held their end of the bargain, forcing their Premier League rival to the wire.

City was the most-liked to win Villa at home. This made a more positive mood at Anfield. Then Pedro Neto gave Wolves a shock early lead within two minutes.

Mane’s equalizer in the second-half lifted Villa’s lead at the Etihad. The crowd thundered with excitement as they sensed a magical end to their domestic season.

Liverpool would have been delighted to win the 20th league title after capturing it in full stadiums throughout the pandemic of 2012.

Jordan Henderson, Liverpool captain, said that there were “a few nerves today but in the end we came through really well.” Sky Sports spoke with Henderson.

” We persevered and won. Although we could hear the cheers and other noises, we didn’t know what their score was. We just tried to focus on what we had to do.

” We have given everything”

Ilkay Gundogan’s title-deciding goal for City was the final nail in the coffin of a deafening atmosphere. However, Liverpool will be able to look back on a remarkable season that could yet peak again.

City’s recovery means they will be the only English club to complete the domestic treble. However, the Reds will end the season with a treble if they defeat Real Madrid in May’s Champions League final.

Triumph in Paris would bring European glory to the FA Cup, Carabao Cup wins this year and ensure Jurgen Klopp’s team would finish the campaign on the highest possible highs.

Despite the pain of the end, everyone was happy when Alisson, City’s goalkeeper, won the league’s golden glove award.

Salah also won the prize for most assists and the golden boot, which he shared with Spurs’ Son Heung Min for his 23 goals.

Henderson said,

“The lads gave everything so you can’t get too many problems.”

“We have given everything this season, up to the very last day. In January, we would have taken it all to the end.

“We are a little disappointed today. We have to send City our congratulations and then we will be focusing on next week’s match.
