Liverpool’s bid for a first Premier League title and a first top-flight triumph in 29 years ended in failure despite a final-day victory over Wolves.
In the ‘as it stands’ table, the Reds were top for 21 first-half minutes, only for Manchester City to recover from falling behind at Brighton to record a convincing 4-1 victory.
Sadio Mane scored from close range after 17 minutes and again after 81 to join Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the Premier League’s top scorer on 22 goals.
Leicester and Chelsea played out a typically low-key end-of-season affair which ended goalless at the King Power Stadium.
The result ensured that Chelsea finished their first Premier League campaign under Italian manager Maurizio Sarri in third.
Sarri’s side began brightly despite the absence of Eden Hazard, who started on the substitutes bench.
Pedro and Willian both carried a threat, but Gonzalo Higuain missed the pick of their chances from close range before the contest fizzled out.
