Manchester City celebrating their title win in the 2021/2022 Premier League season

PL WRAP UP - WEEK 38: Manchester City, 2021/2022 Premier League champions

Manchester City’s comeback 3-2 win over Aston Villa at the Etihad stadium was the last push to earn them the title of champions in this Premier League season. 

It seemed like Pep’s side were not going to secure their top spot after Aston Villa went ahead in the 37th minute when Cash found the back of the net. Manchester City were behind at half-time, and Aston Villa extended their lead in the 69th minute after former Liverpool player Coutinho managed to add one to the tally.

But Manchester City were not done yet as substitute Gundogan closed the gap after heading in a cross from teammate Sterling. Rodri then equalised in the 78th minute, and the final blow was served in the 81st minute after Gundogan tapped another goal in, securing their comeback in five and a half minutes.

Manchester City ended the season with 93 points, one ahead of Liverpool, to reign victorious. Aston Villa finish 14th with 45 points.

Liverpool managed to secure a 3-1 win over Wolves at Anfield, but it was not enough to earn them the title.

The Reds trailed behind in the third minute of the game when Neto found the back of the net to put Wolves ahead. Liverpool came back in the 24th minute after an equaliser from Mane to level the score at half time.

Golden boot winner Salah came off the bench to put Liverpool ahead in the 84th minute, with teammate Robertson following in-suit five minutes later to secure their win over Wolves.

Despite their valiant efforts to make a historical title comeback, the Reds were left with 92 points, one behind the champions. Wolves ended the season 10th with 51 points.

Chelsea also won their last game of the season against Watford after a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Havertz opened the scoreboard in the 11th minute after a cross from Kenedy, but their hopes of an easy win were halted in the last three minutes of the game after substitute Gosling equalised for the away side. Substitute Barkely recovered for his team and managed to pull it back for Chelsea in stoppage time, securing the win for Tuchel’s side.

Chelsea finish the season with 74 points, sitting comfortably in third place. Watford end their season with 23 points, leaving them 19th and relegated from the Premier League.

Spurs secured their top-four finish and a spot in the Champions League after a thrilling 5-0 win over Norwich at Carrow Road.

Spurs began their five-goal tally in the 16th minute after Kulusevski’s tap in, and teammate Kane doubled their lead in the 32nd minute after another assist from Bentancur.

After half time, Kulusevski completed his brace in the 64th minute after finding the top corner, and shared golden boot winner Son scored twice in six minutes to secure Spurs’ win.

The win secured Spurs’ fourth position where they sit with 71 points, and the loss for Norwich means they end bottom with 22 points and are relegated from the Premiere League.

Arsenal ran riot at the Emirates stadium after a 5-1 win over Everton, but it was not enough as they were left out of a top four finish.

Martinelli opened the scoreboard with the penalty in the 27th minute after a handball from Iwobi. Teammate Nketiah scored four minutes after, with Martinelli providing an assist this goal. Van de Beek pulled one back for the away side in first half stoppage time, and Arsenal were ahead by one at half time.

Two goals in three minutes from Soares and Gabriel saw Arsenal go three goals up, and the icing on the cake came from Odegaard in the last minutes of the game.

Arsenal finish their season in fifth position with 69 points, two behind Spurs. Everton finish 16th with 39 points, safe from relegation.

Out of the big six, Manchester United were the only team unable to secure a win in match week 38, as they were handed a 1-0 loss by Crystal Palace at Selhurst park.

Zaha’s first half goal was enough to keep Crystal Palace ahead for majority of the game, despite efforts from Manchester United to try and level the score. McTominay was close to finding the back of the net with 16 minutes to go, but Guaita managed to keep Ragnick’s side out.

Manchester United end their season in sixth place with 58 points, 11 behind Arsenal. Crystal Palace finish 12th with 48 points.

And that’s a wrap.
