Man City clinch Premier League title with dramatic comeback as Liverpool win

[ad_1]

Manchester City have won the Premier League title thanks to a stunning comeback against Aston Villa. Pep Guardiola’s side retained their place at the summit of English football with a 3-2 victory over the Midlands outfit, while Liverpool also stuttered in their attempts to overcome the champions.

It means City have now won four of the last five Premier League seasons. But they did it the hard way against a Villa side led by Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

Goals by Matty Cash and another ex-Liverpool man, Philippe Coutinho, put Villa ahead at the Etihad Stadium. Meanwhile, Wolves had gone ahead against Liverpool through Pedro Neto.

Sadio Mane drew Liverpool level but the Merseysiders required a win and a City defeat to ensure they won the league. That the season went down to the final 15 minutes epitomised an incredible year of football.

City fought back and completed a remarkable turnaround. Substitute Ilkay Gundogan gave them hope, heading in at the far post. Rodri then slammed home an equaliser at the Etihad erupted.

And it was Gundogan – whose future has been speculated about in recent weeks – who scored the third, clinching the title for City. The German tapped home after wonderful work by Kevin de Bruyne to drive forward and put the ball across goal.

It was just as well, too, as Liverpool finally found a way past Wolves. Mohamed Salah – who had started as a substitute at Anfield ahead of the Champions League final – squeezed home in front of the Kop end.

Andy Robertson added a third for Liverpool to set up a nervy final few minutes for City.
