The Citizens went into the game knowing a victory would see them clinch top spot.
Anything less than a draw, though, would open the door for Liverpool to pip them.
It was all going wrong for City. Goals from Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho meant the away side were leading 2-0 with 20 minutes remaining.
But City produced an incredible comeback as they scored three times in five minutes.
Goals from Ilkay Gundogan (2) and Rodri completed the turnaround and City held on to be crowned Premier League champions for a sixth time.
City have been parading around Manchester for their title celebrations on Monday evening.
Silva was not at his best and he came off in the 68th minute with the score 1-0 to Villa. Just 15 minutes later, City were leading 3-2.
Grealish thought he’d poke fun at the Portuguese international for his performance at the Etihad Stadium.
He said: “It’s been brilliant to win my first title. I want to thank everyone. But the main person I want to thank is Bernardo Silva for coming off in the 70th minute, because he was miles off it yesterday!”

Savage. Grealish’s comments had John Stones and Kyle Walker in stitches.
Fans on social media also enjoyed his comments and you can view some reaction below…
On a personal level, Grealish hasn’t had the season he would have wanted since signing for Man City in a £100m move from Villa last summer.
The Englishman played 38 times for the club in 2021/22, scoring just six times.
He found playing time hard to come by towards the end of the season and didn’t even come off the bench in the final day against his former club.
It goes without saying that Grealish is still an incredible talent, though. He will no doubt improve during his second campaign at the club.
