Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho netted to hand Villa an unlikely lead.
At that point in time, the title looked liked it could’ve been Liverpool‘s, who only needed to score a goal to take the lead against Wolves and finish top.
But three goals in five minutes turned the game around for City and ensured the Prem trophy would be staying at the Etihad.
Ilkay Gundogan pulled the first goal back, followed by a well-placed Rodri side-footed effort.
And nine minutes from time, Kevin de Bruyne played an expert cross towards the back post and Gundogan was there to tap home.
The late turnaround rendered Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Wolves pointless as City won the title by one point.
And to celebrate their defence of the Prem, City’s players hit the town centre on an open-top bus.
Players celebrated by drinking beer and spraying champagne on the fans who had lined the streets of Manchester.

Manager Guardiola, and members of the City staff, lit up cigars to celebrate yet another successful season.
Boss Guardiola declared his players “legends” after their title win.
The Spaniard said: “The moment we found a goal it changed everything.
“We are playing in not normal circumstances but you have to handle it.
“Gundogan is the best inside runner we have.
“We were arriving down the sides and we needed a player with the sense of tempo in the box and he’s the best.
“We are legends. When you win the Premier League four times in five seasons it’s because these guys are so, so special.
“We will be remembered. The first title we won with lots of margin, then at Brighton, then winning at home without fans and now with people, it’s the best.
“The magnitude of your achievement is defined by the magnitude of your rival.
“I’ve never seen a team like Liverpool. I know it’s tough but a huge congratulations to them. They help us to be a better team.”
