Man City goalscorer Gundogan: At 2-0 down our title chances were very small; Liverpool pushed us to the limit

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan was eager to pay tribute to runners up Liverpool after being crowned Premier League champions today.

Gundogan struck as City's 3-2 win saw off Liverpool, whom defeated Wolves at Anfield.

The German said: "After going 2-0 down, the chances were just very small. We have to do the simple things again in the best way. Scoring two goals, and having 10 mins to score a third gave us a boost.

"It was a positive one, especially after being 2-0 down. It was about getting that goal and we knew the momentum was on that side. We knew we had to score three in a couple of minutes and we did. We're all fans, and these are the days you look back to, and unbelievable night.

"I know it's tough to say, but if Liverpool wouldn't be there and play the way they play, very successful, this league wouldn't be that attractive. Even though they finish just 1pt behind us they play an incredible season. They push us to the limit, it's a sad day for them but we need to appreciate what they've done and especially my former coach We look forward to competing with them next season.

"Fourth in five years, it's a huge moment, incredible achievement, we have to do it that way. It's about the togetherness within the team, the fans in the stadium. That's what we appreciate the most."
