Manchester City’s another fantastic finish to the Premier League Season

Manchester City secured their sixth Premier League title in 11 seasons on Sunday, coming from behind to defeat Aston Villa 3-2 in the final game and avoid being knocked out by Liverpool. City knew that its victory on Sunday against Aston Villa at home would seal a Premier League title for the fourth time in the past five seasons. Manchester City won the Premier League title in the most dramatic of circumstances, beating Liverpool by one point following a 3-2 victory at Aston Villa under Steven Gerrard. Manchester City won the Premier League for a second consecutive time, with City pulling off a stunning comeback to defeat Aston Villa 3-2 on the final day to spoil Liverpool’s dreams. In a thrilling last-day Premier League campaign, Man City secured the title with a late three-goal comeback win over Aston Villa. Manchester City crushed Liverpool’s four-peat dreams.

Manchester City were 90 minutes from winning the Premier League. Still, they knew that anything short of a win against Aston Villa at home would leave the opportunity for Liverpool to become champions instead. If City cannot win against Aston Villa, Liverpool would steal the Premier League title from them by winning at home to a Wolves side who are not in the same form. Steven Gerrard takes it to the Etihad. If he could prevent a City victory, then Liverpool had the opportunity to end at the top of the Premier League,  provided that Liverpool managed to defeat the Wolves at the Kop. Liverpool was in touch with the title for precious few minutes at Anfield on Sunday, chasing down the winning goal against Wolves as Manchester City sat at 2-0 down to Aston Villa.

Manchester City won the Premier League by one point over Liverpool, with City coming off the back of an upset loss by Aston Villa. Still, Gundogans brace and Rodris’s goal helped them win the title, leaving Liverpool waiting an entire season. However, Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson were expected to lead Liverpool forward in the race to a convincing win in the last two efforts. However, it took the PL title with a stunning display in the second half. Simply put, an Etihad victory suffices for City; however, failing to do so would have paved the way for Liverpool to clinch the title and keep alive their hopes of achieving the unprecedented four-peat. Below the title-chasers, the Golden Boot race also came down to the wire, with local rivals Tottenham and Arsenal fighting for a place alongside Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea in the Champions League next season. Tottenham winning on the final day means they will be in the UCL next season, and H. Son shared the Golden Boot with Salah as they both scored 23 goals in the Premier League this season.
