With the lad from West Derby at the tender age of just 20-years-old, Liverpool however will do well not to dwell on the lost title, and gleefully recognise that they have in Alexander-Arnold one half of a superlative-defying full-back duo the envy of managers not just on home soil, but across the continent.

City started the day a point ahead of closest challengers Liverpool but their grasp on the title threatened to slip completely as Brighton took a surprise lead at the Amex Stadium while Sadio Mane's first goal at Anfield had put Liverpool briefly on course for a first English title since 1990.

Andy Robertson has given a bullish response to Liverpool missing out on Premier League glory, claiming "we're not going anywhere". We didn't win the league but we'll be back next year and we've got a lot of motivation to win the league next year.

"But we have to look on the positive side and remember we are still in Madrid [so] hopefully we can end the season on a high - that's what we are going to try to do". We've come a long way since last season and closed the gap to City.

"It's a big honour, a huge honour, but I would swap it immediately for the Premier League title", he stated.

But City hit back nearly immediately.

They haven't quite been able to replicate their scintillating goalscoring exploits from last term in the league, but Guardiola's side have been even more clinical in domestic cup competitions, as well as Europe. "Both of us have got an unbelievable tally but we can use this and, if we have another season like this, hopefully we will win the league".

Unfortunately for the Guinea worldwide his goal was just a second shy of equalling an all-time club record, set by Paul Walsh against West Ham in 1984.

Pep Guardiola congratulated second placed Liverpool and declared winning titles has become an addiction after Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions for the second consecutive season on Sunday. The previous record was set by Javier Mascherano (15).

Alisson's Golden Glove award for 21 clean sheets is recognition of a major contributor to that statistic, but similarly influential was the dominance and leadership of Van Dijk at centre-back.
