Manchester City have successfully defended their Premier League title after coming from two goals down to beat Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium on final day of the campaign.
Second-placed Liverpool had been on the verge of becoming champions as they came from behind to lead against Wolves, eventually winning the encounter.
The Anfield clash saw the Reds clinch a needed 3-1 victory over a stubborn Wolves side, while they expected anything short of victory for title rivals Manchester City.
City were almost stunned by Steven Gerrard side as they trailed 2-0 by the 69th minute before scoring three goals in five minutes to seal a 3-2 comeback.
The Pep Guardiola side are winning the title for the sixth time in their history, after finishing one point ahead of Liverpool in this campaign.
After beating a supremely well-organised Villa, Guardiola broke down in tears at the final whistle.
At the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal thrashed Everton 5-1 but still failed to clinch a top four spot as rivals Tottenham Hotspur thrashed Norwich 5-0 to seal Champions League place.
At the bottom of the table, Burnley lost 2-1 to Newcastle United to fall into relegation as Leeds United defeated Brentford 2-1 to seal topflight football for next season.
In the other games played, Chelsea won 2-1, Manchester United lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace, Leicester defeated Southampton 4-1 and Brighton won 3-1 over West Ham.
