The most important thing in brief: Jürgen Klopp missed out on winning the English championship with Liverpool FC. The German coach and his team won against Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 (0-1) – but didn’t get enough support.
Manchester City also celebrated winning the title again thanks to Ilkay Gündogan after beating Aston Villa 3-2 (0-1). The club of star coach Pep Guardiola went into the last day of the Premier League with a one-point lead.
Liverpool were behind early on due to Pedro Neto’s goal (3rd minute). Sadio Mané (24th) brought the Reds back into the game after a strong assist from former Bundesliga professional Thiago. When Matthew Cash put Aston Villa ahead in Manchester in the 37th minute, only a worse goal difference separated Liverpool from the top of the table.
In the second half, Klopp had to do without Thiago, who had been replaced injured. However, Aston Villa continued to help for the time being: Philippe Coutinho (69th), like Thiago once a Bayern professional and also formerly employed in Liverpool, increased the score in Manchester to make it 2-0 for the guests. Villa coach and Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard was happy on the sidelines.
But substitute Gündogan (76th and 81st) and Rodri (78th) turned the game around. That’s why the Liverpool goals by Mohamed Salah (84th) and Andy Robertson (89th) didn’t help.
Klopp has been working in Liverpool since 2015, he had won the championship title with the traditional club in 2020. Next Saturday, the “Reds” in the final of the Champions League against Real Madrid have the chance to win the Champions League again after last 2019.
