When the 2-0 against Villa seemed grim, Ilkay Gündoğan started the comeback after 76 minutes. Rodri leveled two minutes later and Gündoğan put City ahead in the 81st. For a moment, despite losing, City looked set to retain the title, with Liverpool drawing 1-1 with Wolverhampton, and the news that Manchester City became champion shocked everyone.
