So Liverpool finish second in the English Premier League table for the 2013/2014 season. Manchester City win the crown much to the delight of their fans by securing a 2-0 victory at home against Westham United.
Liverpool came back from an own-goal down to beat Newcastle United 2-1 at Anfield.
As one of the commentators said, it is evidence of the progress Liverpool have made this season that the title was not decided until the final day.
A Premier League trophy and set of medals were on hand at Anfield in case Liverpool managed to win their match while Man City lost theirs.
Liverpool will have learned a lot from this season. And while the tremendous progress is reason to celebrate, there is plenty of work to do and especially in the rather shaky defense which has let them down despite a highly prolific attack.
Chelsea also came from behind to finish their season with a 2-1 win away at Cardiff and end up third in the Premier League table.
