Minute by minute

Post Thank you for your amazing support all season long. YNWA
Post That's it from our live coverage from Anfield as Liverpool brought the curtain down on an incredible season
Post Rodgers: "It has been a wonderful campaign with a lot of growth and development. It has been incredible to see the supporters, to see the power of the club - the institution that is Liverpool. And we've made them dream, that's our job. The great thing about us is that we will improve, we will get better next season. We're a young group, we'll add more players and we'll be ready to fight again - now we've got the belief."
Post Brendan Rodgers: "First and foremost, congratulations to Manchester City. It has been an incredible campaign, 38 really competitive and tough games in the most competitive league in football. And they are the champions, so congratulations to them. My overriding feeling at the moment is one of sheer pride in the players. To finish the season winning 12 games out of 14 - we drew one and lost one - the players have shown an incredible level of consistency and quality in that period. Over the course of the season, to finish second behind Manchester City, we'd prefer to finish top, but it is a great marker of the progress we've made this season."
