Just short of the club’s unforgettable ‘Aguero moment’, a six-minute revival from two goals down to win still goes down as one of the Premier League’s most remarkable finales.

Premier League: Manchester City are crowned 2021/22 Premier League CHAMPIONS after beating Aston Villa 3-2, Liverpool cement 2nd place, Burnley RELEGATED as Leeds United survive

Toiling through most of the match, and lacking inspiration, City had twice been stung by a well-organised Villa side, but somehow summoned up three quick goals to move onto 93 points – one ahead of runners-up Liverpool.

81′: Man City 3-2 Aston Villa – Gundogan

75′: Man City 0-2 Aston Villa – Rodri

79′ Rodri equalises for Manchester City with a great effort from yards out!

  • Norwich 0-5 Tottenham, Son scores a brace
  • Leicester 2-0 Southampton, Jamie Vardy scores a second goal
  • Norwich 0-4 Spurs, Heuing-Min Son scores the fourth goal
  • Burnley 1-2 Burnley, Maxwel Cornet pulls one back

67′ Guardiola turns to Gundogan. On for Silva.

  • Norwich 0-3 Tottenham, Dejan Kulusevski also scores a brace at Carrow Road
  • Burnley 0-2 Newcastle, Callum Wilson scores a brace
  • Arsenal 4-1 Everton, Gabriel Magalhaes adds a fourth for the Gunners

55′ Watkins with a great chance to make it 2-0 straight from Olsen’s goal kick but wastes it. Flag goes up for offside but he started that run in his own half. Sterling on for Mahrez.

  • Arsenal 3-1 Everton, Cedric Soares scores a third goal for the Gunners

54′ Sterling about to come on

49′ Gabriel Jesus flies in at the back post but can’t convert. Pep Guardiola is up and applauding, asking for the Man City fans to get the atmosphere going again.

  • Leicester 1-0 Southampton, In-form James Madisson scores the opening goal
  • Brighton 1-1 West Ham, Joel Veltman equalises the scoreline

45′ Departing captain Fernandinho is being replaced by Oleksandr Zinchenko.

HALF-TIME

  • Arsenal 2-1 Everton, Donny Van de Beek pulls one back for the Tofees
  • Brighton 0-1 West Ham, Michail Antonio puts the Hammers in front

35′ GOALLL! Aston Villa go 1-0 up. Matty Cash heads home.

  • Norwich 0-2 Spurs, Harry Kane doubles Tottenham’s advantage
  • Arsenal 2-0 Everton, Nketiah scores the second goal

30′ CHANCE! Gabriel Jesus runs clear after a loose touch from Villa, but he scuffs his shot into the ground and it trickles well wide. The moans and groans increase inside the Etihad.

29′ Jesus goes for goal from a tight angle, but Olsen stands tall to keep it out.

  • Arsenal 1-0 Everton, Gabriel Martinelli scores from the penalty spot

25′ The hosts counter-attack and Foden’s shot is deflected just wide of the post.

  • Burnley 0-1 Newcastle, Callum Wilson scores from the penalty spot for Newcastle

A quick City counter ends in Mahrez weaving his way to the left byline, and his low cutback is desperately cleared away by a sliding Digne at the back post, with De Bruyne lurking dangerously.

After Digne returns to his feet, City are back on the attack. Olsen is forced to punch away a De Bruyne corner, allowing the visitors to eventually get the ball clear.

  • Norwich 0-1 Spurs, Dejan Kulusevski with a big goal for Tottenham

City have won nine of their last 10 Premier League matches against Aston Villa, including the last six in a row, while Villa have lost 15 of their last 16 away league games against today’s opponents – losing each of the last 11 in a row since April 2007.

Villa’s first corner results in a short spell of pressure, but the ball then strikes Digne straight in the face from a Chambers drive, and the full-back is laid flat out on his back. The game is paused while he receives medical treatment.

  • Chelsea 1-0 Watford, Kai Havertz scores the opening goal for the Blues at Stamford Bridge

A long, straight ball by Fernandinho towards Jesus is just smothered by Olsen in the Villa goal. Seconds later, the Swedish goalkeeper gets away with clattering a clearance straight into the fast-closing Jesus.

Another run by Cancelo ends with the City full-back prodding a reverse ball for Foden harmlessly over the byline, and a promising attack comes to an end.

Cancelo bursts through the centre of Villa’s defensive third, but thumps a shot straight at Chambers on the edge of the box, and Villa get the ball at least partly clear. It has been a bright start from City, and title rivals Liverpool have gone behind at Anfield!

Fouled by Chambers, foden earns a free-kick on the left flank, near the touchline, and City have a chance to deliver the ball into the box. However, Fernandinho can’t make clean contact on the ball with a header from De Bruyne’s cross.

  • Pedro Neto scores at Anfield as Wolves lead 1-0 against Liverpool

A nervous start by Olsen sees the Villa debutant overhit a pass towards Cash straight out of play, much to the sudible delight of the home fans.

0′ We are underway at the Etihad
