On Sunday, May 22, Manchester City won the English Premier League title after Pep Guardiola’s side beat Aston Villa 3-2 on the final day of the 2021-22 season.
This is the Man City’s fourth Premier League title in five years and comes on a day when their closest rivals for the title, Liverpool, won 3-1 against Wolves at home, giving City a solitary point margin over Liverpool.
Manchester City took a one-point lead into the final game, meaning Liverpool needed to beat Wolves and Pep Guardiola’s side had to slip for the Reds to have a chance at lifting the Premier League title.
They looked like blowing their opportunity when Pedro Neto put the Wolves ahead after three minutes at Anfield, but Sadio Mane quickly pulled Jurgen Klopp’s men level.
City still held the advantage heading into the second half, yet that quickly changed when ex-Reds star Phillipe Coutinho made it 2-0 for Villa, meaning his old club would be on the cusp of glory by taking the lead against Wolves.
However, the Manchester club then produced one of the most remarkable Premier League finales of all time, scoring three goals in the space of five crazy minutes and storming to their second consecutive title.
Guardiola’s decision to introduce Ilkay Gundogan proved a masterstroke, with the midfielder pulling a goal back for them in the 76th minute.
Rodri then slotted home a superb equalizer with a low effort from the edge of the area two minutes later, before Gundogan netted the all-important winner with nine minutes remaining to ensure City were champions again.
