Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has labelled his team "legends" after retaining the Premier League title with a 3-2 victory at home to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Citizens were trailing 2-0 heading into the final quarter of an hour at the Etihad Stadium, but two goals from substitute Ilkay Gundogan either side of a strike from Rodri within a five-minute period helped them turned the game on its head to win their fourth Premier League title in five seasons.

Speaking to after lifting the Premier League trophy, Guardiola said: "We are legends. When you win four in five then it's because these guys are so special. We will be remembered.

"We won with 100 points, second one at Brighton, winning at home with our people is the best."

The Spaniard added: "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. [Oleksandr Zinchenko] gave us a lot in the second half. We scored the goal and got the momentum and our fans did the rest."

Guadiola has also praised the efforts of title rivals Liverpool, stating: "I've never seen a team like Liverpool in my life. I know it's tough, but they helped us become a better team season by season.

"We want to win. I have the feeling that the rivals are tough and they will be more tough next season.

"Today I have no energy to think about next season. We are champions again! We will defend our crown again and again."

City finished the 2021-22 season at the top of the table with 93 points, just one clear of second-place Liverpool, who won 3-1 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.
