Came back from 0-2 down, to beat Aston Villa 3-2

SOCCER

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

Two goals from substitute Ilkay Gundogan helped them come from 2-0 down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 yesterday.

City finished a point ahead of Liverpool - who claimed a 3-1 victory over Wolves.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he couldn't fault his players:

At the other end of the table, Burnley suffered relegation after a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle, with Leeds retaining their status thanks to a 2-1 win over Brentford.

Tottenham claimed the final Champions League spot, finishing fourth at Arsenal's expense after a 5-0 win over Norwich.
