Manchester City have, in a comeback, lifted the Premier League (PL) 2021-2022 trophy after defeating stubborn Aston Villa 3-2 at Etihad Stadium in the final game of the PL season.
City have been in close rivalry with Liverpool for their fourth English Premier League title in five years and led the English topflight league’s table with a point difference to the last fixture.
With the game against Steven Gerrard’s side, a legend of the Reds, Liverpool had hoped a shocker will be pulled in the Etihad and sustained while Klopp and the Kop in Anfield will panelbeat Wolverhampton to leapfrog Pep Guardiola’s side to lift the PL trophy.
Aston Villa scored first in first-half against City and double the lead in the second half through a former Liverpool and Barcelona player, Philip Coutinho.
Shocking has the outcome may seem, to see the trophy slip through their fingers without a fight, a resonated Manchester City slotted in the first of the superb comeback win through Ilkay Gundogan, and Rodri doubled it 2 minutes later.
Surprisingly, with Aston Villa’s towering resilience to checkmate the high-powering attack of Manchester City, 3 minutes after Rodri’s, the Premier League Player of the season, Kevin De Bruyne assisted Ilkay Gundogan to seal the victory and clinch the Premier League trophy with 93 points.
