Manchester City won the Premier League title in dramatic fashion on Sunday, coming back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Aston Villa 3-2 with three goals in the final 15 minutes. Pep Guardiola’s side held off Liverpool’s title challenge by a point thanks to two goals from Ilkay Gundogan, who came off the bench. Rodri also scored. The champions produced a remarkable comeback at the Etihad Stadium, reminiscent of the first of City’s now six league titles in 11 seasons when Sergio Aguero scored a 93rd-minute Manchester United will be denied the title based on goal differential.
Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho, both former Liverpool players, scored goals to give the Reds the title. Jurgen Klopp’s side did their job by beating Wolves 3-1 at Anfield, but City’s heroics ensured Liverpool’s quest for an unprecedented quadruple was ended.
Gundogan began his comeback by heading in a cross from Raheem Sterling at the back post.
Rodri scored from the edge of the box, and Gundogan completed the comeback by tapping in Kevin De Bruyne’s cross at the back post.
Guardiola stated before the game that he did not want a repeat of Sergio Aguero’s famous late strike from a decade ago.
Calatan, on the other hand, was the happiest man in Manchester after winning his 10th league title in just 13 seasons as a coach.
At full-time, fans flocked to the pitch to celebrate, and the crossbar at the goal where City scored all of their goals was snapped under the weight of fans seated on it.
