BREAKING: Manchester City are Premier League Champions
15 April 2018 Sports
Manchester City have been confirmed as the Premier League champions after Manchester United slumped to a surprise 1-0 defeat at home to West Brom.
City’s 3-1 victory over Tottenham on Saturday evening meant United had to avoid defeat against Albion to keep the title race alive. Jay Rodriguez’s goal at Old Trafford, though, means the trophy heads to the other side of Manchester for the third time in seven seasons.
Second-place United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola’s side with only five games left to play.
It is City’s third title in seven seasons and a first under the Spaniard in his second campaign in charge.
They have dominated this year’s title race, scoring 93 goals and losing just twice so far.
Confirmation of City’s title success comes as a fillip at the end of a difficult spell for City, during which they lost in the Manchester derby and suffered a Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool.
