MANCHESTER CITY are champions of England once again after neighbours Man United lost at home to Leicester.
Pep Guardiola’s dominant side have now lifted their third title in four years after blowing away the rest of the field.
City should have spent Saturday evening celebrating their title triumph but were forced to put the champagne on ice after losing 2-1 at home to Chelsea.
But it was just a matter of when before their champion status was confirmed with three matches to spare when Caglar Soyuncu headed home Leicester’s 66th-minute winner at Old Trafford.
The Sun reports that it caps a dominant decade for City who have won five titles in the last 10 years after being pipped to the post by Liverpool last season.
It caps a remarkable month for the club who booked their spot in their first ever Champions League final on May 29 after knocking out Paris Saint-Germain.
For Guardiola, it is his ninth league title in his managerial career having won three with Barcelona, three with Bayern and three with Man City.
Speaking of City’s success, the gaffer admitted this was the most difficult one to win.
He said: “This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other. This was the hardest one.
“We will always remember this season for the way that 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.”
