  • 3 things we learned

Thank you so much for joining me on the epic last day of the Premier League season! It’s too bad that I can’t wait for the 2022-23 season to start in August…!? See you later.

Great scenes around Etihad as the players lift the trophy and the fans go crazy every time. Fernandinho is then given a special ceremony as it was the 37-year-old’s last game for Manchester City. What an incredible career he’s had and he’s been serenaded on the pitch by City fans as he stands there with his family.

But no moment compares to this. Ukrainian star Oleksandr Zinchenko is overcome with emotion as he draped the Ukrainian flag over the Premier League trophy before being hugged by his teammates. Which moment.


What a moment here on Etihad when the Oasis song takes over, then the Yaya/Kolo Toure song.

Now we are waiting for the newly minted champions to return to the field and lift the trophy. The fans have left the field, and now they applaud every time they show the best moments on the big screens again.

Trying to make sense of what we see…

Incredible scenes at the final whistle are here.


Manchester City are Premier League champions for the fourth time in the last five seasons and the sixth time.

Just when you think you’ve seen everything…

GOALLL! GALL! GALL! Manchester City go 3-2 ahead. Three goals in 5 minutes. What the hell is going on!? Gündoğan scores twice from the bench, with Rodri in between.

GALL! Aston Villa are 2-0 ahead. What’s on earth. Who is writing this script? Coutinho with a goal. Of course it was Coutinho. Etihad Stadium is absolutely stunned.

27 minutes left. My nerves are shattered. Damn it’s stressful.

Raheem Sterling replaced Riyad Mahrez.

City were close early in the second half when Jesus slipped through the back post but failed to convert. Rodri then fired a shot on goal.

Fernandinho withdrew from the field at half-time. Zinchenko was replaced at left-back, Cancelo moved to right-back, and Stone moved to center back. Not the last City shirt Fernandinho would like.

BREAK: Manchester City 0-1 Aston Villa. City have only won 1 of their last Premier League games when they were losing.

Watkins and Coutinho have several chances at half-time after the first goal. The city is on the defensive everywhere. Guardiola looks furious.

GOALLLL! Aston Villa beat Manchester City 1-0. A well-aimed cross from the left deals Matty Cash. Another dramatic turn on the last day of the season.

CLOSE! Phil Foden throws a few inches wide. Things get very tense when the news leaks out that Liverpool have equalised.

Mahrez dances into the box, but his ball is cleared into the back post as City began to mount the pressure. Few moans and moans from the City fans after a few passes.

The game went down a little after Lucas Digne fell due to a head injury. His own players, Calum Chambers, smashed the ball right in his face. Ouch. This slightly reduced the sharpness of the game.

The celebration among the home supporters is here as a filter for the news around Wolves going 1-0 up at Liverpool. Drama already.

KICK OFF: Great start here at the Etihad as City had a lot of ball but Villa looks dangerous at half time.


Here are my final thoughts before the start…

The teams are back. The pressure is rising. Now things are getting pretty serious. I just met Manchester City legend Sean Goater here in the press box and he told me it would actually help Manchester City if Aston Villa scored first as City would be forced to play into their regular game and come out and attack with everything they have. .

Here is Pep talking about today’s pressure. He looks as cool as a cucumber. How!?

Team news is out! Some big surprises as it looks like John Stones is starting from the right behind City and Foden, Mahrez and Jesus are starting the attack. Kyle Walker is quite suitable for the bench. Villa don’t have star goaltender Emiliano Martinez, so Robin Olsen is making his debut. This seems like a huge blow for Villa, who have opted for a pretty attacking lineup as Watkins, Coutinho, Buendia start with Jacob Ramsey starting in midfield.

By the way, watch this video below without getting excited. My word. Goosebumps.

The city team has arrived. Blue flares (which seem to be very easy to get these days!?) are plentiful on Etihad.

There is a very festive atmosphere here in Manchester. The vast majority of City fans seem to be expecting an easy home win today. On paper it should be, but today is the last day of the season. Who knows?

So so so. We are here. There are 90 minutes of the season left. Manchester City know that a home win over Aston Villa on the last day will secure the Premier League title for the fourth time in five seasons. But a draw or defeat leaves…
