He said: “We’re going to go for it. OK, guys?

“It’s impossible to think about the consequences if we don’t win. It’s normal. It’s normal. But you have to be positive until the end.

“We need one goal. Then we will have the momentum and we will do it. I know you feel the pressure in the danger. It’s normal.

“We would not be here if we hadn’t been the best. You would not be.

“I know we are going to win it, but you have to handle in here [the mind] in a positive way. Find the quality, guys! You have enough. Okay? Allez.”

Guardiola’s words served as inspiration as City completely changed the game in the final 15 minutes.

Villa was defeated 3-2 and the title returned to the Etihad thanks to a double from Ilkay Gundogan sandwiched between Rodri’s goal.

It is therefore no surprise that Guardiola received applause from the crowd for his team talk.

One said: “Pep motivation is genius. He is a true coach. Never shaken in his approach even when they are losing.”

Another added: “The way Pep talks to his players makes me a bit emotional. City are fortunate to have him as their manager.

“I have always admired Pep and his football ideology since his days at Barcelona.”

One wrote: “What a manager Guardiola is… motivated his team when the heads looked like falling. A legendary coach.”
