That was a gripping end to the 2021/22 Premier League season. Manchester City win the title by one point from Liverpool. But, at one stage on Sunday, the scenario looked very different.

When Mo Salah put Liverpool ahead in the 84th minute, he could be forgiven for thinking that his goal would win the Premier League for Liverpool.
But, incredibly, Manchester City had already scored three goals in five minutes to lead 3-2 and secure the title that had for so much of the season appeared to be theirs for the taking. But all credit to Liverpool for running them so close.
