In the second half, Manchester City boosted their victory with the fourth goal in the 66th minute, and Liverpool player Alex Oxlade Chamberlain accidentally scored his team’s goal when trying to tackle Stirling’s shot.
It is noteworthy that it is the first time in 5 years that Liverpool is 3 goals behind in the first half of a Premier League match, the last time when the team was 5 goals behind in the game lost to Stoke City 1-6 on 24 May 2015.
As expected, Manchester City players and coach Pep Guardiola set up an honorary pass for Liverpool players after crowning the title, according to the tradition followed in the Premier League.
He won the title for Liverpool for the first time since 1990, after Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 last Thursday in the 31st round, which saw Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 4-0 a day earlier, widening the difference between leaders Liverpool and second-placed City. Up to 23 points with 7 stages left.
While Riverball is looking for additional victories to achieve more records that it has already achieved, Manchester City spoiled the Reds celebrations and its fans, and overcame it 4-0 to raise its score to 66 points in second place, 20 points behind the champion
