Manchester City Stun Aston Villa With Late Comeback (3-2) to Clinch 4th Premier League Title in 5 Years

Drama on the final day of the English Premier League! Just when it looked like Aston Villa was about to shock Manchester City with a final-day upset — which would’ve given Liverpool the title — City struck back with three goals in five minutes. Rodri (78’) and Ilkay Gundogn (76’, 81’) scored late in the contest to swing the scoreline from an 0-2 deficit to a 3-2 victory. Gundogan came on as a second-half substitute to save the day. The dramatic finish gave City their fourth EPL title in the last five seasons as they edged Liverpool by just one point in the table.
