Manchester City clinches Premier League title after United's capitulation

Manchester City clinches Premier League title after United's capitulation

Rather than seeing if Manchester City won the English Premier League, Pep Guardiola was on a golf course.

"The only score I want to know is bogey or birdie", said Guardiola. "After what happened and how the people reacted, these guys are fantastic". Incredible. What they lived the other week was so unfair.

And even if United win their next two games, City can secure their third title since 2012 by beating Swansea next Monday. That will be achieved by United losing at Bournemouth on Wednesday or if Jose Mourinho's side draws with both West Brom and Bournemouth.

Guardiola's side extended their lead over second-placed Manchester United to 16 points thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling at Wembley. It means we can now focus exclusively on the breathtaking football, the power and vision of Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling's development, Leroy Sane's unstoppable surges down the left, Kyle Walker's dominance of the right flank and Guardiola's determination to win his way.

An incredible 18-match winning streak, running from August to New Year's Eve, saw City surge away from the opposition and take a grip on the table that never loosened.

After being beaten by archrival Manchester United a week earlier from two goals up when victory would have clinched the championship, then being knocked out of Europe by Liverpool, some suggested that City were beginning to flag.

The Premier League title is the 24th trophy of the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss' managerial career.

"I may be the only one who is already thinking about next season but I'd like to stay humble about the fact it's not a dynasty, it's just one title that we've won".

"Mo knows what this means and the way we play suits him", added Klopp.

All of Liverpool's prolific front three were on target as Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino struck either side of Salah's deft header to take their combined tally for the season to 82. You may win the Champions League in seven video games, one unsafe sport you might be out.

Arguably the performance that pleased the eye most all season, with City at their most fluid and exhilarating. "We are in the top four". "We have got five finals to play, after that we will see".

Crystal Palace and Huddersfield moved further clear of the drop zone with wins. Wins over West Ham and Southampton would give them 50, and have Pep's men holding yet another record.
