All you need to know about trophy presented to Manchester City on Sunday

With only a point separating the two teams going into the final day, there was a Premier League Trophy at both Manchester City's match at Brighton & Hove Albion and at Anfield for Liverpool v Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The trophies are identical and include an engraved base detailing past Premier League Champions.

During the season, one of the two trophies stays with the PL Champions, while the other is used by the League.

With City leading the table going into Matchweek 38, the "Champions" Trophy was at Brighton's Amex Stadium while the other was at Anfield.

The trophies stand 3ft 5in (104cm) tall and 2ft (61cm) wide and weigh 4st (25.4kg) in total.

Of that weight, the base into which the names of the champions are engraved comprises 2.5st (15.9kg).

They were cast by Asprey London, the Crown Jewellers, with the main bodies made from solid sterling silver. The crowns are cast from 24-carat silver gilt.

The bases are made from Malacite, a semi-precious stone found in Africa, with the green colour of the opaque stone representing the field of play.

The design of the trophy is based on the theme of "The Three Lions of English Football".

Two of the lions are above the handles on either side. When the captain of the title-winning team raises the trophy, and its gold crown, above his head at the end of the season, he becomes the third lion.
