For 24 chaotic minutes, Liverpool was in the lead as they led Wolves at home and Man City was trailing Brighton & Hove Albion on the road.
In a blink of an eye, order was restored.
Man City turned it around and won 4-1 to secure its second straight Premier League title on the final day of the season, concluding an epic battle with the Reds on 14 straight wins to close out the year. They came back from a seven-point deficit earlier in the winter, climbing the table with a stunning second-half showing.
The excitement was palpable as the club lifted the trophy on the Amex field after the win over Brighton. They received their winners medals and celebrated the win amid a shower of confetti. Holding the trophy high was captain Vincent Kompany whose absolute howitzer last time out topped Leicester City and was a critical moment in the title chase.
The manager then got to lift the silverware, as Pep Guardiola won his eighth league title in the last 11 years, a stunning return for one of the best managers to ever play the game.
