Manchester City slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.
And it meant one thing – Liverpool had won the league title after three decades. The Premier League has come home to Anfield.
Pep Guardiola had the following to say:
“A big congratulations for Liverpool, for this great season, for the title they won,” he told BT Sport.
He said: “We have five weeks, six weeks and time to think about it. What this club has done in the last decade is fighting for the titles, we won a lot in the last years, and we’re going to try to be close.
“Two seasons ago, we won 25 points in front of Liverpool, so after two seasons, they have more than 20 right now, the gap is big and we have to close it.
“We are not consistent like previous seasons. We arrived after four titles in one season, Liverpool after winning the Champions League, it gives them confidence and the fact it’s 30 years since they won the league, it was an incredible focus in the players.
“When they take advantage, it causes pressure for the run. We cannot forget we are still second in the league, so we’re still better than a lot of teams, and we’re going to finish fighting for the Champions League.”
With the Premier League gone, is the Champions League gone too?
