Liverpool Talking Points- A brace from Sadio Mane on Liverpool’s final Premier League night against Wolves was not enough for Jurgen Klopp and his men to lift the Premier League title over Manchester city. The match between Brighton and City was the deciding factor and despite the Seagulls scoring first, it was Pep Guardiola’s men who came storming back with four goals to win their second successive Premier League title.

It was an amazing journey for the Reds as they end their campaign on 97 points and missed out only by a point. However, there were lots of positives to take for Klopp as his side gave their all on the field every time.

With all said and done, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were pretty decent as they had their chances to score as defender Matt Doherty struck the bar and Raul Jimenez squandered a great opportunity. Allison was kept busy as Diogo Jota also forced him to a save or two.

3. A breakthrough season for Wolves

it has been a year to savour for Nuno Espirito Santo and his men. Right after promotion to the Premier League things were not going to be easy but Santo trusted his players and they did not disappoint him either.

They have been a remarkable story this season. They made it a habit of beating teams in the top half of the season. Although this was not their day they definitely had a free-flowing demeanour in their football something which the Premier League fans enjoyed watching. On their day they could take down any side and on the other hand, they even got beaten by some low ranked sides in the course. So Santo will look to fine-tune his players even more and with this amount of grit and talent going on in the ranks, the Wolves can knock the door of the Champions League next season, who knows.

2. Mane finally out of Salah’s shadow

When the duo joined Liverpool, it was mostly Mohamed Salah and his heroics last season. It was a great story for the Egyptian to come such a long way. However, with Mane, the road had not been easier. This season it was his claim to fame. He banged in goals in crucial junctures over the season. He finally managed to come out as himself. Far from playing second fiddle in the Liverpool side.
