Pep Guardiola and his star-studded team found themselves 2-0 down at the Etihad Stadium. However, as Liverpool were – at that stage – being held by Wolves they were always in the ascendancy.
Knowing that one goal could have swung the pendulum in favour of the challengers from Merseyside, though, Ilkay Gundogan took matters into his own hands. Indeed, having been summoned by Guardiola from the City subs bench, he scored twice late on to see the trophy stay in Manchester.
Rodri was also on target for City as they completed a turnaround to win their fourth title in five seasons on a simply high-octane afternoon at both ends of the table. It proved to be quite telling, too, as Liverpool went on to win their match against Wolves and see themselves pipped to the big one by a single point.
Liverpool won both domestic competitions this season and still have a Champions League showpiece against Real Madrid to come. However, while they might end the campaign with three trophies as United did in 1999, supporters have been quick to point out they can no longer go one better and get their hands on a quadruple.
