City overcame a two-goal deficit thanks to two goals from Ilkay Gundogan and one from Rodri, after Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho had put Villa in possession and had Liverpool fans dreaming of a final-day upset, only to be shattered as the title returned to the Etihad.

“Congratulations to Man City and Pep Guardiola. Thank you to Aston Villa and Wolverhampton for making a proper game of it.

“It’s not the result we wanted. It was a bit of a rollercoaster. I don’t know the results exactly but I know they were 1-0 up – where they 2-0 up as well? Of course at the moment there’s disappointment here as well.

Guardiola was in tears on the sidelines at the final whistle after being taken through a rollercoaster of emotions in City’s final game, and he praised Liverpool’s challenge. “I have never seen a team like Liverpool in my life in your competitor,” he said. “They help us to be a better team season by season.”

Klopp can be satisfied with his team’s fantastic season, which has seen them win the Carabao Cup, FA Cup, and come within a point of winning the Premier League, all while still having a Champions League final to look forward to next week.

“I am proud. It’s been an incredible season. Exceptional,” he said in his post-match press conference. “The game today showed so much about these boys.

“The early girl was a knock and we didn’t play football like we usually played and you still find a way. Absolutely outstanding. 92 points is crazy. Yes, I’m proud.”
