Man City crowned 2021/22 Premier League champions after pipping Liverpool on dramatic final day
UAE-owned Man City have been crowned 2021/22 Premier League champions after a dramatic final day to the Premier League season.
City, who knew a victory would secure them the title, were down by two goals to Aston Villa with just 15 minutes remaining, but turned the game around with three goals in five minutes to win 3-2 in thrilling scenes to rival the famous 2012 Premier League title victory.
Liverpool were 3-1 winners against Wolves, but fell short by just a point after a stunning 38-game duel, ending their Quadruple hopes.
City have now won four Premier League titles and eight major trophies under Pep Guardiola since his arrival in the summer of 2016.
“The moment we found a goal it changed everything. We are playing in not normal circumstances but you have to handle it,” said a jubilant Pep Guardiola.
“We are legends. When you win the Premier League four times in five seasons it’s because these guys are so, so special. We will be remembered. The first title we won with lots of margin, then at Brighton, then winning at home without fans and now with people, it’s the best,” the ecstatic manager added.
