Manchester City dragged their supporters through a gamut of emotions before capturing the Premier League title with a stirring 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.
On one of the most intense final days in Premier League history, Kevin De Bruyne had the presence of mind to slide the ball across for Ilkay Gundogan to score the 81st-minute goal that would eventually secure City’s breathless comeback victory. Five minutes earlier, City were two goals down to Steven Gerrard’s side and facing the prospect of surrendering the title in one of the most embarrassing ways imaginable.
The result meant Liverpool’s nervy 3-1 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers couldn’t trouble Pep Guardiola’s side in first place.
"Pep Guardiola can't cope, that shot there of him crying says it all" 😭
