Manchester City win the premier League titleMay 23, 2022
Manchester City won the Premier League title by a point from rivals Liverpool on the final day of the campaign after Pep Guardiola’s side survived a huge scare today.
City had to fight back from 2-0 down in the second half, but three goals in the space of five minutes — including two from German substitute Ilkay Gundogan set off the party, with fans pouring onto the field at the Etihad Stadium at the final whistle.
City have now won four of the last five Premier League titles and their victory ends Liverpool’s hopes of a unique quadruple of trophies.
Liverpool, who face Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Paris next week, had also found it hard to get their business done at Anfield against Wolverhampton Wanderers but late goals from Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson earned them a 3-1 win.
Juergen Klopp’s side never went top of the ‘live table’ during the afternoon of drama but until City’s revival the destiny of the title was hanging tantalisingly in the balance.
