From control to havoc: How Manchester City beat Liverpool to the Premier League title again

Former Manchester United captain and England defender, Rio Ferdinand tweeted that the English Premier League is “the best football league in the world” and we couldn’t agree more.

It went down to the wire this past Sunday as Liverpool and Manchester City fought it out till the last game of the league to decide the EPL title.

City went into their final game against Aston Vill with just a point above second-placed Liverpool. A win for the reds at Wolves and a loss or draw for City would mean that Liverpool would be champions.

Both sides started on the backfoot. Liverpool conceded within the third minute from a Pedro Neto goal. However, that lead only last for 21 minutes as Sadio Mane equalized in the 24th minute.

City on the other hand finished the first half trailing with a goal behind. That lead was then extended in the 69th minute by former Liverpool midfielder Coutinho. It looked written in the stars for the reds as a goal looked imminent at Anfield while things were falling apart at the Etihad stadium.

However, in a dramatic turn of events, City managed to score three goals in the space of five minutes to lead and eventually win the league. Two came from German machine İlkay Gündoğan in the 76th and 81st minutes and one from Rodri in the 78th minute.
