Manchester City beat Aston Villa on final day to claim 2021/22 Premier League title

Manchester City weathered a resolute Aston Villa to prevail 3-2 on the final day and claim the 2021/2022 Premier League title.

Liverpool defeated Wolves 3-1 but they needed City to drop points for them to emerge champions. And it almost looked like it.

By the 70th minute, Aston Villa were leading 2-0 against the run of play at Etihad, but Guardiola’s men kept piling the pressure.

Some 12 minutes after Villa scored their second, City had staged a remarkable comeback to lead 3-2.

Elsewhere at Anfield, Liverpool fought back from a goal down to win 3-1, thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson.

The Reds, who’ve won the Carabao and FA Cups this season, finish a point behind champions City, who have now picked up their fourth league title in five years.
