Man City again provide title drama as Pep Guardiola rectifies errors from his bench
The Independent says swear you’ll never see anything like this again. But honestly, when Manchester City have a league title to win and lose on the last day, who knows what can happen?
They had been here before, of course. This was the fourth time they led a title race going into the final day in recent memory, the third at the Etihad, and one of those was just about the most extraordinary moment English football has ever witnessed. And just in case anyone needed a helpful reminder of it, the Etihad’s jumbotron replayed the ‘93:20’ moment shortly before the start of the second half, when Aston Villa were still just the one goal up.
You wondered if that lifted any of the increasing number of tortured expressions worn in the stands or if it was simply an invite to relive the deep anxiety of that day, rather than its release. The point of Sergio Aguero’s goal, commemorated for posterity outside this ground only last week, was that it was unique. A total one-off. You’ll never see anything like this again, et cetera.
