Pep Guardiola has joked he phoned Real Madrid for advice after his side pipped Liverpool to the Premier League title

Pep Guardiola wins fourth Premier League title with Manchester City

Manchester City are crowned Premier League champions, coming back from a two goal deficit to a stunning finish at the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola's men succeeded in hitting three past Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa despite the fierce challenge from the former Liverpool skipper and his side.

Liverpool, on the other hand beat Wolves 3-1 courtesy of goals from Sadio  Mane, Mo Salah and Andy Robertson that puts them a point adrift of the crowned champions.

Speaking after the game, Pep Guardiola from his joy of winning the top-flight title reflected on his Champions League nightmare at Madrid that holds resemblance to his side's victory against the Villans.

"I called Real Madrid and they gave me good advice!" he said on the turnaround. "No explanation in Madrid, no explanation today. It's momentum. Sometimes it's nice to live these kinds of situations. I had the feeling this will help us to be stronger next season.

"Maybe we need a little bit more time but every second that passes after this Premier league we realise that four Premier Leagues in five years in this country is probably the best achievement we have done in our careers. It is incredible.

"Jurgen Klopp said a few days ago about the winners: there are few winners but a lot of triers. I love this concept. I'm a good trier. I'm going to say that Liverpool are losers? What they have done in the Premier League in the last few years when there was a team that was one inch better than them but they are winners.

"Of course, in society there is just one winner and the rest are disasters. That is the wrong message for the new generation. You have to be a good trier and try every time and do it and not give up. Both teams, Liverpool and ourselves have done it in the last five years.

"What we did is that when the Premier League average was 82, 83 points average, now you need more than 90 in this leagues against these teams and managers and players, is quite remarkable. I said the same. How big is your rival your victory is higher and there are no doubts in this country about that."
