Absolutely extraordinary scenes.

In one of the best days of Premier League action of all time, Manchester City were crowned champions thanks to a 3-2 win against Aston Villa.

Steven Gerrard’s Villa side did all they could, going 2-0 up against the champions, but an incredible City comeback saw them claim the Premier League title for the second season in a row.

Ilkay Gundogan scored a brace to secure all three points, with a fine finish from Rodri also helping Guardiola’s men over the line.

Over at Anfield, Liverpool did their job and beat Wolves thanks to a late winner from Mo Salah, but it wasn’t enough thanks to City’s remarkable comeback.

Liverpool never actually went top of the league, but it did feel as though it was going to be their title with 20 minutes to go in each game.

However, City’s relentless pressure on the Villa defence paid off, meaning heartbreak for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Liverpool seemed to be struggling to break Liverpool down, but after Salah’s goal, the pressure seemed to come off and Andy Robertson added to the score.

Fans in both ground were both nervously checking their phones throughout the entirety of the game, desperately hoping for their rivals to slip up.

In the end it was City who did enough, despite the best efforts of Gerrard and co.
