Liverpool 2 Wolves 0: Reds Falls Short As They Finish Second In Title Race

Liverpool‘s bid for a first Premier League title and a first top-flight triumph in 29 years ended in failure despite a final-day victory over Wolves.

In the ‘as it stands’ table, the Reds were top for 21 first-half minutes, only for Manchester City to recover from falling behind at Brighton to record a convincing 4-1 victory.

Sadio Mane scored from close range after 17 minutes and again after 81 to join Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the Premier League’s top scorer on 22 goals.¬†Liverpool keeper Alisson was confirmed as the Golden Glove winner with 21 clean sheets.

The victory was Liverpool’s ninth in a row and their 30th overall in the league. They finished on 97 points, the third-highest top flight total in English football history.
