MANCHESTER: Following a dramatic comeback win against Aston Villa, Manchester City won the 2021/22 Premier League- their fourth title success in the last five seasons.


City's 3-2 win over Aston Villa in the final game of the season saw them finish one point ahead of second-place Liverpool at the end of a competitive season in England.


This is Pep Guardiola's 11th major honour since becoming City manager in 2016, a period which has seen City's style of play revolutionised.

Villa took the lead on 37 minutes with their first shot of the match, Matty Cash heading Lucas Digne's cross past Ederson. Philippe Coutinho doubled Villa's advantage at the 69th minute.


However, Man City started a sensational comeback in the second half as Gundogan headed in at the far post from Raheem Sterling's cross to pull a goal back with 14 minutes remaining. It was 2-2 on 78 minutes, Rodri striking low into the bottom-left corner. The comeback was complete when Kevin De Bruyne drove into the box and crossed for Gundogan to tap in.
