Man City are the Premier League champions as Arsenal lose to Nottingham Forest

204

Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions following Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat away to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, moving Pep Guardiola’s side one step closer to completing a remarkable Treble.

City are now just two finals away from becoming the first English side since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 1999 to complete the Treble — the first comes on the FA Cup final against United at Wembley on June 3, followed by the Champions League final against Inter Milan in Istanbul on June 10.

Arsenal’s result means they cannot catch City in the race for the Premier League, with Mikel Arteta’s side remaining four points behind with just one game to play.

City’s next play on Sunday when they take on Chelsea at the Etihad.

The club have now won the Premier League in five of the past six seasons.

This year’s triumph is their ninth top-flight in their history, and their seventh since their Abu Dhabi owners City Football Group took over the club in 2008.

Pep Guardiola’s side began the season in fine form, buoyed by the unprecedented scoring of summer arrival, Erling Haaland, but City had to settle for second place after 14 games when the Premier League entered its winter break in November for the World Cup in Qatar.

Meanwhile, City were charged by the Premier League in February over breaking financial rules across nine seasons, with the possibility of open-ended sanctions remaining, which could include fines, points deductions or relegation.

City continue to deny the charges.
The Premier League returned on December 26 following the World Cup, and City proved their dominance.

With two wins over Arsenal, City embarked on a still-ongoing 11-game winning-streak that helped them to a third-consecutive league title

Haaland has netted a single season-record 36 goals in the Premier League and been crowned men’s FWA Footballer of the Year.

City have also won two FA Cup titles and five League Cup trophies since 2008.
