Manchester City produce stunning comeback to win English Premier League title on dramatic final day

The host knew a victory on the final day of the season would guarantee the title and, despite a 2-0 loss, he scored three goals in five-and-a-half seconds to send the Etihad Stadium raving.

Fans, many of whom had their heads in their hands for much of the game, ran onto the pitch full time to celebrate winning a title race like no other.

As the season drew to a close, City manager Pep Guardiola said “the hardest serve in tennis is the one you have to serve to be champions”.

It was an analogy that couldn’t have been more apt on a rollercoaster afternoon in Manchester.

Goals from Matty Cash and former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho seemed to have stolen the title from City, but Guardiola has assembled a very special team.

While many teams may have withered under the pressure, City kept pushing and got their reward – with two goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Rodri securing a fourth league title in five years.

It’s a feat made all the more impressive by the quality of Liverpool, who have fought tooth and nail with City throughout the season.

The victory comes ten years after Sergio Aguero opened the floodgates to a decade of success at Manchester City, scoring a last-minute goal on the final day of the season to lift his side’s league title.

And, minus a goal in the dying seconds, that title victory was almost as spectacular with fans witnessing the full spectrum of emotion.
