The 2012/14 Premier League season has ended with Manchester City on top of the ladder with 86 points and more than 100 goals scored.

Heading into the final round of the season it was a tight race between Manchester City and Liverpool. The title was in the hands of Liverpool but after a controversial match against Chelsea the door was opened for Manuel Pellegrini's men.

With two matches remaining Manchester City had to gain a minimum of four points in order to win the title. Much of their success is due to the magnificent performances of key players such as Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure. 

Many people are arguing that Liverpool played better football (than Manchester City) throughout the season and that they should have won the title without the despicable tactics of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho at Anfield in Chelsea's 2-0 victory over The Reds.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez scored a whopping 31 goals from 30 games due to an eight match ban at the beginning of the season. Both Suarez and Sturridge largely contributed to the success of Liverpool this season scoring a combined 52 goals (more than half of Liverpool's goal tally) and with the assistance of Steven Gerrard having 13 assists many teams found it a difficult task to defend against Liverpool's attack.

Manchester City also have shown brilliant talent throughout the season. With David Silva and Yaya Toure both having 9 assists Manchester City's strike force would have found it difficulty to not score goals. Their two highest goalscorers are Yaya Toure (20) and Sergio Aguero (17) with a combined tally of 37 goals.

So the answer remains to be seen. Do Manchester City deserve to win the title after only being on top of the league for 15 days. Or have Liverpool been hard done by? Or should Chelsea have finished on top of the league?
