Manchester City are the 2018/19 Premier League champions

It's been a very long, dramatic season, but Manchester City have retained the title, winning the Premier League for the fourth time in their history and bringing their English top flight title tally up to six.

Pep Guardiola's boys in Blue beat Brighton in emphatic style at the Falmer Stadium this Sunday, bagging an incredible fourteenth consecutive league win in the process.

The battle for first place was one of the most dramatic position fights in the history of the Premier League, with Liverpool and City trading places for the majority of the season.

However, on the final day the tension was quickly eased in Manchester as City cruised past Brighton with a 4-1 win.

The two North West teams put on one hell of a performance this season and you could argue that their battle has kept them both in top form.

Liverpool, who recently booked their place in a second Champions League final in two years, were breathing down City's necks until the very last day - and it wouldn't have been a surprise if they'd managed to pull the title out of their rival's back pocket.

But it wasn't meant to be for the Scousers, who put in a valiant effort and played some of the best attacking football the league has seen for some time, with the scintillating trio of Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Fermino bagging over 50 PL goals between them.

And while some City fans will be disappointed to have been knocked out of the Champions League again this year, there's not doubt in anybody's mind that they are the best side in the Premier League, one of the best in Europe, and deserving 2018/19 Premier League champions.

Meanwhile on the other side of Manchester, Man Utd are just thankful that it wasn't Liverpool's year (again).

They need to rebuild quickly, after a terrible end to the season which culminated in an embarrassing loss to already relegated Cardiff at Old Trafford this afternoon, but that's a story for another time.
