We all thought we must have seen it all when Michael Thomas last gasp winner secured the title for Arsenal back in 1989; however scenes at the Etihad Stadium have simply gazumped that as two goals in injury time saw Manchester City take the points with a 3-2 win that sees them land their first Premier League title, in what will be arguably the first of many for the Citizens.
It was simply a dramatic afternoon and even before the 4th official put his board up to show 5 minutes of injury time it appeared they had handed their great rivals a 20th League title, as City appeared to have run out of huff and puff after 90mins of being camped pretty much in Queens Park Rangers’ half. Manchester United thought they had won it as the seconds were running out at the Stadium of Light and the players were all on the pitch waiting, until news filtered through from the Etihad of Sergio Aguero’s last gasp strike.
Roberto Mancini, the players and the fans were clearly emotional at the final whistle and rightly so after a gruelling 38 games that has seen them lift the trophy on what has proved to be goal difference. Sir Alex Ferguson was very gracious at the end of United’s game against Sunderland and wanted to offer his congratulations to their great rivals on their title success. Mancini felt that the best team in England had deservedly won the Premier League this year and believes that there will be one hell of a party in the Blue side of Manchester tonight.
