Manchester City staged a stunning late comeback with three goals in five minutes to beat Aston Villa 3-2 and win the English Premier League at Etihad Stadium this morning.

Pep Guardiola's side needed victory to secure their fourth title in five seasons but were facing the prospect of ending the season empty-handed as goals either side of the interval from Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho put Villa 2-0 ahead and in control.

City turned the game on its head in at atmosphere bordering on hysteria when Ilkay Gundogan, on as a substitute for Bernardo Silva, gave them hope and scored a goal in the 76th minute, and Etihad Stadium was a wall of noise when Rodri scored another two minutes later.

The title-winning recovery was complete with nine minutes left as Gundogan once again arrived at the far post to put City in front.

City boss, Pep Guardiola was overcome with emotion and broke down in tears at the final whistle.

After a 3-1 win over Wolves, Liverpool finishes the season in second spot while Chelsea and Tottenham are third and fourth respectively.

In other matches today, Chelsea beat Watford 2-1 and Tottenham beat Norwich 5 nil.

The top 4 teams of the season have now qualified for the UEFA Champions League.
