  1. Farewell

    Manchester City are champions

    Right, that is it for this live text as Manchester City stream back to the dressing room and the post-match interviews are about to begin.

    Head to our main live here for all the reaction to City retaining the Premier League title.

    And Phil McNulty's report of City's victory over Brighton is building here.

    Thanks for reading. What a belting season.

    And still the Europa League and Champions League finals to come.

    But for now, farewell.

  2. "Champions again - what an incredible effort"

    Alan Shearer

    Match of the Day pundit

    Well done Manchester City. Champions again, and what an incredible effort to retain their title.

    But well done to Liverpool too. What a great season they have had and, with the Champions League final to come, it is not over yet.

    Watch how the final day unfolded on Match of the Day at 22:30 BST on BBC One and the BBC Sport website.

  3. Man City enjoy the celebrations

    Manchester City's players, management and backroom staff celebrate with their fans gathered jubilantly at one end of the The Amex Stadium.

    The race is run and the best team always wins the Premier League - and that honour once more goes to Manchester City.

    Truly astonishing to think that Liverpool amassed 97 points and still did not win the title.

    FT: Brighton 1-4 Man City

    The DJ at the Amex is playing Jimmy Eat World so they are the true champion today.

    FT: Brighton 1-4 Man City

    After that nervy start and Glenn Murray's opener, that was about as ruthless and comfortable a win as City could've managed.

    Brighton scoring might be the best thing that happened to them today. They were visibly mad at going a goal down and scored with their first attack after it.

    That just spurred them on to a supreme attacking display and Brighton had no answer.

    An impressive way to win a title at the end of a thrilling season.

    And just the small matter of a record 14 straight victories to end a season to beat a brilliant Liverpool side.

  6. Post update

    FT: Brighton 1-4 Man City


    Former Man City midfielder Yaya Toure is pitchside trying to do an interview for Sky Sports.

    The City players spot him, sprint over and mob the Ivorian.

  7. Post update

    FT: Brighton 1-4 Man City

    Pep Guardiola seeks out Sergio Aguero and embraces him. A kiss on the cheek. Perhaps a tear in the eye of the Spaniard too.

  8. Post update

    FT: Brighton 1-4 Man City

    Manchester City are Premier League champions for 2018-19.

    Man City's players stream off the bench to join their team-mates on the pitch.

    Broad smiles from Pep Guardiola. Applause. A punch of the air.

    City's players and staff stride over to salute the travelling fans.

    And that is that. Referee Michael Oliver blows his whistle for full-time.

    Manchester City become the first side in 10 years to retain the Premier League title!

  11. Post update

    Brighton 1-4 Man City

    Brighton are finally allowed to hold the ball for a while but can't fashion anything as an errant pass goes through to Ederson.

    The City keeper holds on to it until a Brighton attacker finally trots toward him.

  12. Post update

    Brighton 1-4 Man City

    Anthony Knockaert gets in down the right and beats the first man with an exquisite bit of skill.

    He tries it again but Bernardo Silva stops him in his tracks.

    Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola and Chris Hughton embrace and exchange words on the touchline.

  13. Post update

    Brighton 1-4 Man City

    Two minutes of added time to come.

    Two minutes until Manchester City are confirmed as Premier League champions.

  14. Post update

    Brighton 1-4 Man City

    City get in down the right and Riyad Mahrez slides in an unmarked Sergio Aguero!

    But no, the striker's effort is a bit tame and blocked.

  15. Post update

    Brighton 1-4 Man City

    A gleeful Pep Guardiola bangs his thigh with a closed fist in delight and beams as he turns to assistant Mikel Arteta.

    He looked like a nervous wreck earlier. How four goals make a difference.

    City make their final substitution as Danilo comes on for Kyle Walker.

  17. 'Aguero will want another goal'

    Brighton 1-4 Man City

    Michael Brown

    Former Manchester City and Spurs midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

    If I was Sergio Aguero I would ask my teammates if 'you could stop passing it around in midfield and get it forward, I want to win the golden boot'. Strikers are like that.


    Brighton 1-4 Man City

    Time for Man City to make the emotional substitutions.

    Captain Vincent Kompany hands the armband to Sergio Aguero, embraces all of his team-mates and leaves the field for Nicolas Otamendi.

    That wonder goal against Leicester ensured his side could win the title here today.

    A warm hug with Pep Guardiola before he takes his place on the bench.

    Kompany's contract is up at the end of this season - is this his last City game? The signs are he'll be back for at least another year though.

    Not that it really matters now but Liverpool's Sadio Mane has scored again.

    City look very much like they want five here.
