Liverpool finish runners up despite victory over Wolves

Liverpool have finished the 2018/19 season runners up to Manchester City, despite Sunday's 2-0 win over Wolves.

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.
