Manchester City won their third Premier League title in four years after Leicester City defeated Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Pep Guardiola’s side are now 10 points ahead of second-placed United with just 3 games to go and that means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can only accumulate a maximum of 9 points from their remaining games.

It is the seventh time City have won the first division league in English football and the fifth in nine years.

“This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other,” said Guardiola.

“This was the hardest one. We will always remember this season for the way we won. I am so proud to be the manager here and of this group of players.

“They are so special. To come through this season, with all the restrictions and difficulties we’ve faced – and show the consistency we have is remarkable. It is relentless.

“Every single day, they are there, fighting for success, trying always to be better. They have been so, so resilient.

“I have been in Spain, I have been in Germany and I can say this is the toughest league, I would say by far. So it means a lot to everyone.”



Guardiola has now won eight domestic trophies since arriving in Manchester in 2016.

Man City had the chance to win the title at the Etihad Stadium themselves on Saturday, but suffered a shocking 2-1 defeat against Chelsea, which meant United were still numerically in the hunt for the title.

However, Leicester made sure to make United pay as they fielded a second-string side as they had nothing really to play for having secured qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League and also having the Europa League final to deal with in two weeks’ time.

Solskjaer’s side has already earned 12 points more than last season when they finished in 3rd and were given the tedious task of playing 4 games in 7 days as the Liverpool match was rescheduled due to Man United fan protests against the owners (Glazers) at Old Trafford.



It is City’s second trophy in a little over two weeks after they beat Tottenham to claim the Carabao Cup for a record fourth consecutive time and are also in their first-ever UEFA Champions League final after beating Paris Saint-Germain comfortably to set up a clash against Thomas Tuchel’s resurgent Chelsea.

Since being taken over by the Abu Dhabi Group (Etihad) in September 2008, City have won 12 trophies and this is the third time they have clinched a league and League Cup double.

Manchester City have been the best team in England since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson and United fans will be hoping to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bring back the glory days to the Red Devils soon.

City can end the season with 3 major trophies but Chelsea stands in their way. Chelsea themselves can end up with a double as they get ready to face Leicester in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

Congratulations to Manchester City on a truly spectacular season and there is no doubt they deserved it.
