So Liverpool have scored one against Wolves and are leading 1-0 at Anfield. Manchester City lead Brighton 2-1 and as it stands Guardiola's City will be defending their Premier League title.

This is an intense title race. Liverpool had it all going for them in the first 27 minutes before City took matters in their own hands.

May 12, 2019 8:10 pm (IST)

38' - Aymeric Laporte scores for Manchester City off a brilliant corner. Bad defence from Brighton. Laporte was completely unmarked and was allowed to run it to easily meet the ball - a free header. And this might be the title-winning goal.

Brighton 1-2 Manchester City

May 12, 2019 8:00 pm (IST)

28' - Sergio Aguero nets it. He is the Manchester City hero. He got them the title last time it was tight. Will he get them to the trophy this time again? That's a brilliant response from Guardiola's men.

Brighton 1-1 Manchester City

May 12, 2019 7:58 pm (IST)

27' - Glenn Murray scores a header off a brilliant corner and Manchester City now find themselves behind. While Liverpool have got a goal, they have conceded one. This has completely turned the table.

Brighton 1-0 Manchester City

May 12, 2019 7:57 pm (IST)

SAVE! Wolves keeper with a big save against Jordan Henderson. That was a solid strike from the midfielder but it just did not find a way in. That was a big chance for Liverpool to get a 2-goal lead.

May 12, 2019 7:55 pm (IST)

GOAL! Manchester United 0-1 Cardiff City

23' - Nathaniel Mendez Laing nets the penalty for Cardiff to give them the lead at Old Trafford. Dreadful start for United. Cardiff will cherish this one.

May 12, 2019 7:50 pm (IST)

17' - Sadio Mane finds the back of the net to give Liverpool the lead at Anfield. A simple tap-in finish from Mane to Alexander-Arnold's pass from the right. Alexander-Arnold gets his 12th assist of the league season.

With the current scoreline, Liverpool will win the Premier League title.

Liverpool 1-0 Wolverhampton

May 12, 2019 7:44 pm (IST)


11 minutes into the match and Newcastle United have scored two past Fulham. Ayoza Perez and Jonjo Shelvey scored within two minutes of each other to put Newcastle 2-0 up.

May 12, 2019 7:41 pm (IST)

Intense starts from both Liverpool and Manchester City. City are playing their own style of football - quick and stringing passes at ease. At the moment, Brighton have done a good job holding them on.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have made a few forays up front but are yet to take a clear look at the goal.

May 12, 2019 7:35 pm (IST)

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Everton

Eric Dier gets the early goal for Tottenham. 3rd minute and Tottenham are on the board. With the current scoreline between Tottenham and Chelsea, the Spurs will go up on 3rd.

May 12, 2019 7:31 pm (IST)

The whistle is blown and all the matches of the final day begin.

Manchester City and Liverpool will have pressure, ecstasy and sheer will for the Premier League title today.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard leads the list with 15 assists so far while Bournemouth's Ryan Fraser is a close second with 14. Tottenham's Christian Eriksen occupies the third place with 12 assists while Liverpool's wingbacks Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are joint-fourth with 11 assists.

May 12, 2019 7:03 pm (IST)


Liverpool's Mohamed Salah leads the race for the golden boot with 22 goals this season. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Sergio Aguero and Sadio Mane are all joint-second with 20 goals each while Jamie Vardy is third with 18 to his name. Unless Salah scores none and the three at the second spot rain down goals, it is likely that Salah will take the honours.

May 12, 2019 7:00 pm (IST)

The Manchester City travelling fans are in high spirit as they expect and hope to see their team defend their Premier League title. If City manage to do so, they would be the first team to defend their league title since Manchester United in 2007-08 and 2008-09.

Premier League Highlights: Manchester City Retain Premier League Title, Liverpool Finish Second
Premier League: With Manchester City and Liverpool locked in the dramatic title race, the final day matches are set to decide the winner for the 2018-19 season.

After defeating Brighton on Sunday, City registered their 14th straight Premier League win while Liverpool's win over Wolves gave them their ninth straight win. If there was ever a case to share the trophy it was this season, such has been the excellence of both clubs. In reality, finishing second will be a bitter pill to swallow for Liverpool.

Liverpool lost just once in the entire season - an astonishing achievement in itself. But the seven draws to City's two is what hurt them in the end.

It was only the eighth time in the Premier League era that the title was decided on the final day.
