With three goals in five minutes, City defeated Aston Villa from a 2-0 deficit to win the Premier League title.

It caused wild celebrations among players and fans, none more so than the former Oasis star, who needed an ambulance and missed the dying moments due to City defender Dias’ father.

Noel Gallagher needed stitches in his face after being accidently headbutted by Ruben Dias’ father during Manchester City’s stunning comeback to win the Premier League title on Sunday.

The artist and City fan said he was “soaked in blood” seconds after Pep Guardiola’s team rallied from a 2-0 deficit against Aston Villa to triumph 3-2 at the Etihad in the season’s last game.

“Let me tell you what happened to me yesterday,” Gallagher told talkSPORT.

“As the third goal goes in, there is absolute bedlam in the stadium.

“Where we sit, Ruben Dias’ family are a couple of boxes up. I’m jumping around like an idiot, passing my son around like the Premier League trophy, everyone’s lifting him up.

“I turn around, Ruben Dias’ dad runs straight into me, headbutts me, I’m on the floor, covered in blood.

“I don’t see the last two minutes, I’ve got to get taken down by St John’s Ambulance to get stitched up.

“I’ve got stitches in my top lip, two black eyes. As I’m going down the corridor, Pep is running up crying and we hug each other.

“He says, ‘What’s up with your face?’ And I said, ‘Go and be with your players!’

“If you saw me today, I look like I’ve just arrived home from the eighties at Elland Road, I look like I’ve had my head smashed in. It’s unbelievable.

“Lots of City fans are asking me what happened and I’m just saying, ‘You’ll never guess’.

“There’s not a mark on him [Dias’ dad]. He’s a big bear of a man. He almost knocked my teeth out.

“I’ve got rehearsals today, but the good thing about that is I’ve got three Liverpool fans in my band!”

Gallagher was on tour when Sergio Aguero scored a stunning winner to win the title ten years ago, but he thinks Sunday was just as dramatic.

City’s sixth Premier League title makes them the second most successful team since the league’s start in 1992 and now only behind Man United!
