Jubilation, relief and ecstasy. Those were the emotions running through the veins of just about everyone at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon as Manchester City sealed a dramatic win over QPR to win their maiden Premier League title.
Trailing with just three minutes remaining of stoppage time remaining, Eden Dzeko’s header pulled Roberto Mancini’s men level to give City a shred of belief that they could salvage their hopes of finishing top.
And nothing could compare to the late drama as Sergio Aguero fired the hosts into the lead and ensured City would secure their first top-flight title in 44 years – ousting Manchester rivals United in the process.
