Argentine star, Sergio Aguero has said Manchester City’s win against Liverpool in January was the reason his team won the EPL title yesterday.
Liverpool had the chance to go 10 points clear at the top of the table if they defeated their rivals at the Etihad Stadium but City won and closed the gap to only four points.
Klopp later dropped points to Leicester City, West Ham, Manchester United and Everton before winning his final 9 games to only finish second.
Aguero said, “The Premier League is complicated,”
“I’ve been here eight years and the truth is that every game is difficult. [This season] we knew that our only option was to win.
“I think the key was in January when we beat them and managed to get a few points closer, and after that it was a question of them drawing a few games.
“We knew that Liverpool were always there in the fight, but luckily we could just think about ourselves and we knew that we had to win today. That’s how it went and I’m happy with my fourth Premier League title and I hope it goes on like this.”
“Obviously our objective this year was also to fight for the Champions League but these things happen in football.
“We were out by such a small margin, by an elbow that was offside, but next season we will try to fight until the end.”
