Ollie Watkins missed a glorious chance to make it 2-0, stabbing a shot wide, before Philippe Coutinho doubled Villa’s advantage on 69 minutes.

Gundogan headed in at the far post from Raheem Sterling’s cross to pull a goal back with 14 minutes remaining.

It was 2-2 on 78 minutes, Rodri striking low into the bottom-left corner.

The comeback was complete when Kevin De Bruyne drove into the box and crossed for Gundogan to tap in.

City end the season one point ahead of Liverpool while Villa finish 14th on 45 points.
