Henderson: We gave it our all but Man City were better

Whilst rivals Manchester City have spent an accumulated £123.5million on full-backs, the combined cost of Robertson and TAA amounts to just £8million, the Scotsman a snip from Hull City, and Alexander-Arnold rising through the academy ranks to become a vital first-team member.

Mahrez, City's record signing who has endured a hard first season under at City, then made sure of the result and the final destination of the one of the most thrilling title races in recent memory with a thumping right-foot shot on 63 minutes.

Yet while a sixth Champions League/European Cup trophy would be nice - particularly after the disappointment against Real Madrid in last season's final in Kiev - a first Premier League title next season remains the focus of the drive forward.

"People will tell us it's 30 years or whatever (since Liverpool won the league) but other clubs have bigger problems, to be honest".

Alexander-Arnold was at it yet again as he registered another assist for Sadio Mane, who headed home from the right-back's cross into the box to complete a 2-0 win for Liverpool.

"They're an incredible team so they deserve it, congratulations to them".

"This team is not a finished article". As we know, the closer call came directly in the game between the top two at the Etihad in January.

City were actually better off last season, in terms of points and goal difference, but Liverpool have taken their game to new levels on the domestic front this time around, improving their points tally by 22 and goal difference by 21. "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".

"You've got to look at the things they can control", he said. "I will relax the mind, enjoy the beach and after then we get together for a camp and be ready for the final". "That's the plan from tomorrow on".

Liverpool plays Tottenham in the Champions League final on June 1. Jurgen Klopp has done stellar work at Anfield, but after the Champions League final he will go back to the drawing board to figure out just how he can unseat the Catalan.

They won it by one point, five goals better off than Liverpool, but the race was effectively decided by millimetres because of the two key goal-line technology situations.
