Manchester City retained their Premier League title and finally ended Liverpool's magnificent challenge after surviving a scare to come from behind and outclass Brighton at the Amex.

Glenn Murray gave the Seagulls the lead with a glancing header from a corner after 27 minutes, anxiety rose in Sussex and hopes rose at Anfield that Liverpool might win their first title in 29 years.

But City produced the response of champions. Sergio Aguero struck just 83 seconds after Murray's opener, before Aymeric Laporte's header secured a half-time lead.

Riyad Mahrez rifled City's third into the top corner on 63 minutes before an exquisite Ilkay Gundogan free-kick sparked wild scenes of celebrations among Pep Guardiola's players and staff.
Chris Hughton: "For a good period of the game, we were able to give them a good game and that's what I wanted, but the fact their equaliser was so quick after our goal, that really hurt us."
Pep Guardiola: "I have to say congratulations to Liverpool of course. Thank you so much. They helped to push us and to increase our standards from last season. To compete against this team pushed us to do what we have done. It's incredible, 198 points in two seasons to go back-to-back. We made the standard higher last season and Liverpool helped us - to win this title we had to win 14 in a row. We couldn't lose one point. It's the toughest title we have won in all my career, by far."
