Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold were in superb form for Liverpool in their final league game of the season.

Liverpool beat Premier League high-flyers Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at home but it was not enough for the Reds who were piped to the league title by Manchester City.

The Citizens retained their league title by beating hosts Brighton and Hove Albion 4-1 on the final day of the season.

On his part, Trent Alexander-Arnold finished the season with 12 assists to set a new record for the most goals provided by a defender in the history of the Premier League.
