Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions on Sunday afternoon after defeating Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens were 2-0 down with 20 minutes remaining and it was looking increasingly likely that Liverpool would pip them to the title.
But Pep Guardiola’s side scored three goals in four minutes turned the game on its head.
City celebrated their sixth Premier League title on Monday evening as their players and staff paraded around the city.
Jack Grealish was worse for wear for large periods. He was calling out his own teammates left, right and centre.
And, when tearing into Riyad Mahrez, he also had a random shot at Newcastle forward, Miguel Almiron.
Grealish and Bernardo Silva were discussing the ‘secrets’ behind City’s turn around against Villa on Sunday.

The Englishman said that one of Guardiola’s best decisions was taking off Mahrez, before comparing him to Almiron.
He said: “Riyad [Mahrez]: take him off as soon as possible… he played like [Miguel] Almiron.”

Ouch. We’re not quite sure why Grealish has randomly decided to mock Almiron but there we are.
We’re interested to see whether the Newcastle man decides to reply to Grealish’s comment.
View some reaction from fans to Grealish’s Almiron slander below…
Grealish has had a tough first season at City, scoring just six times in 38 games.
He admitted after City’s win against Villa that he didn’t think he’d find it as difficult as he has done.
He said, per the Mirror: “Honestly it’s unbelievable. After the third goal went in I ran on the pitch then I ran down the tunnel just crying my eyes out. As a kid all you want to do is play in the Premier League, then you want to win it.
“We know with our quality we can beat anyone, which we did in the last 20 minutes or so. (It means) everything. When I signed friends and family asked me ‘what do you actually want to win?’ and for me I’ve always wanted the Premier League.
“It (playing for City) is more difficult than I thought, but I’ve enjoyed every minute. I stepped out of my comfort zone, new changing room, new surroundings. It has been difficult, but this today makes up for it.”
Premier League recap: Can you get 20/20 on this quiz about the 2021/22 season?
