Three goals in five minutes late, in the game turned the match – and the title, race – on its head as substitute Ilkay Gundogan scored two, either, side of Rodri’s strike. Liverpool’s late, win over Wolves meant that only victory would have, been enough for City.
With Villa rocking now, the, ball fell to Rodri on the edge of the box and he, passed the ball into net from distance to draw level. Suddenly, it was one, goal required to render events at Anfield redundant and the momentum felt irresistible, once more.
De Bruyne found space in the right, channel and his low cross found that man, Gundogan at the far post to send the supporters at the Etihad, Stadium into ecstasy. It was an inspired final substitution by Guardiola with Jack Grealish left o,n the bench.
It changed the game. It change,d the title race.
Mohamed Salah and Andy Roberts,on’s late goals for Liverpool meant that, was still no margin for error but City were not going to make, the same mistake, shutting down the game, sensibly for the remaining moments as the relief began to pour down from the stands.
The supporters followed, rushing, the pitch upon the final whistle. Another, unforgettable afternoon for the supporters of a club that only, seems to do dramatic.
