Manchester City Wins English Premier League Title After Manchester United Stumbles

Adjust Comment Print

The Blues travel to in-form Burnley on Thursday, live on Sky Sports Premier League, where victory will close the gap on fourth-placed Tottenham to five points, and three days later they play Southampton in the FA Cup semi-finals.

On April 7, City played United and leading 2-0 at halftime had looked on course to claim the title. They started to do it with such an emphatic win over Spurs, but can now take it further by eroding so many records.

Soon after United's defeat on Sunday, the City website tweeted: "Our Time".

The Argentina worldwide may still be prone to some freakish decisions, but Otamendi has made 2,665 successful passes in the Premier League this season, at least 300 more than any other player, showing how the champions play the ball out from the back. "He's a big part of that and hopefully these can be his first trophies of many here at City".

Chelsea's defence of their Premier League crown hasn't gone too well and they now sit fifth, with very little hope of qualifying for the Champions League next season. What a great feeling! "So happy to be able to share another trophy with our unbelievable fans!" tweeted City's captain Vincent Kompany.

The Premier League's top scorer Mo Salah is the only Liverpool player in the 11.

The team, which is deployed in a 4-3-3 formation, also includes five players from the Manchester City squad that have clinched the title with five games left to play. Thoroughly deserved and won with a style of football that is truly joyous to watch. "None of us really expect it to happen [on Sunday] but it was great that it did and I know the whole team have been celebrating".

"We were masters in complication, everything was complicated", Mourinho told Sky Sports. "Now, the trick is making sure we kick on again next season and come back even stronger". There was no fluidity.

He added: "We must focus on the future, finish the season with five wins".

It reflected City's specialness, just as the records of this season should.

"I trust in my work". It is unbelievable to see how he influenced Man City in the Premier League like he did in Munich with Bayern.

"If there's kids in the room, cover their ears or send them out", Kompany said, as he toasted City's third league title in the last six years - the club's first sustained period of success since the late 1960s, nearly five decades ago.
