Ollie Watkins missed a glorious chance to make it 2-0, stabbing a shot wide, before Philippe Coutinho doubled Villa’s advantage on 69 minutes.

Gundogan headed in at the far post from Raheem Sterling’s cross to pull a goal back with 14 minutes remaining.

It was 2-2 on 78 minutes, Rodri striking low into the bottom-left corner.

The comeback was complete when Kevin De Bruyne drove into the box and crossed for Gundogan to tap in.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City end the season one point ahead of Liverpool while Villa finish 14th on 45 points.

Pep Guardiola wins his fourth Premier League in five years .

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said ,”The last game is always special, a lot of emotions. The moment we scored the goal it changed everything.

I told them it is normal, but you have to handle it. Oleks gave us a lot in the second half. We scored the goal and got the momentum and our fans did the rest.

Ilkay Gundogan is the best runner in second positions that we have. We arrive in the sides with Joao and Oleks. And we have people with the sense of tempo in the final third- but he is the best.

We are legends. When you win four titles in five years then it’s because these guys are so special. We will be remembered. We won with 100%, second one at Brighton, winning at home with our people is the best.

The moment we scored and equalised quickly we had a feeling that we had the chance to score the third.”
