‘We understand how good of a side Aston Villa were, they showed it today but we all know with our quality we will beat anyone. We did that within the last 20 minutes or so, I can not put it into words.

‘It means the whole lot – after I signed here people were saying to me “what do you truly want – to win the Champions League or the Premier League?” and for me it was at all times the Premier League. I’ve never won it before and I’m so blissful.’

Pep Guardiola branded his Manchester City stars “legends” for securing a fourth Premier League title in five years following a breathless end to the season against Aston Villa.

A decade on from Sergio Aguero sealing the crown in a jaw-dropping 3-2 final day win, a rocking Etihad Stadium witnessed similar drama just because the title seemed to be slipping from their grasp.

Matty Money and former Liverpool favourite Philippe Coutinho scored against stunned City, who knew the crown would head to Anfield if Jurgen Klopp’s Reds eventually found a option to beat well-drilled Wolves.

Liverpool ended up 3-1 victors but City by that time had launched a five-minute turnaround rendering that immaterial, with substitute Gündoğan scoring either side of Rodri’s strike in one other unforgettable 3-2 victory.

‘Within the last five years winning 4 Premier Leagues, these guys are legends already,’ a beaming Guardiola said after his side maintained their one-point advantage over Liverpool.

‘I’m sorry, people need to admit it. This group of players are absolutely everlasting on this club because what we achieve is so difficult to do.

‘Just Sir Alex Ferguson with United has done it years ago two or 3 times, now I realised again the magnitude of Sir Alex Ferguson and his United.’
