EPL: Drama as Man City win title on final day, Arsenal miss out on top-four, Burnely relegated

Manchester City beat Liverpool to the Premier League title thanks to goals from Gundogan and Rodri in the first five minutes. Thrilling final-day drama as Manchester City win the title, Arsenal fall out on the Champions League top-four, and Burnley are relegated. Man United

Liverpool's hopes of an unprecedented quadruple were dashed on the last day of the Premier League season when Manchester City snatched the title from their grasp.

Two goals down, Manchester City rallied from behind to beat Aston Villa 3-2, and Liverpool came from behind to beat Wolverhampton 2-1 at Anfield.

Manchester City defeated Aston Villa 3-2 in the Premier League.

City came into Sunday's final game at Etihad Stadium having won 14 of their first 18 home games of the season.

Pep Guardiola and his players were aware that a draw or a loss could mark the end of their title hopes.

As expected, Aston Villa took a two-goal lead over Manchester City before clawing their way back to victory and winning the Premier League title.

Villa had taken a shaky two-goal lead through Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho in the 37th and 69th minutes, respectively, but the Cityzens reversed the tables.

In the first five minutes of the game, City scored three goals in a row through Ikay Gundogan and Rodri to cement their status as champions for the years 2021-2022.

There was also a 5-1 thrashing of Everton at the Emirates, but the result was meaningless since Tottenham Hotspur thrashed already-relegated Norwich City 5-0.

As a result of Burnely's 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United, the club will be playing in the Championship for the foreseeable future.
