Manchester City wins Premier League after Watford stuns Man United

Manchester City has won the Premier League title as Manchester United’s shock 1-0 home defeat by West Bromwich Albion confirmed their fierce rivals as champions.

United, who won 3-2 against City before their game against West Brom, 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 fifth top-flight crown — their first under the Spaniard in his second campaign in charge, after dominating the title race, scoring 93 goals and losing just twice.

This Premier League title is the 24th trophy of the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss’ managerial career, after the 47-year-old has previously won league titles in Spain and Germany, as well as two Champions Leagues with FC Barcelona.

City also set numerous Premier League records in the journey to this title victory including 18 consecutive wins, and have beaten every other side in the division this season at least once.

Their match at Everton also saw them retain 82.13% possession, the highest recorded in the Premier League, and broke passing records, completing over 900 against Chelsea.

They have only failed to score in a league match once this season and lead the stats in terms of possession, touches, passes, shots and goals.

In Europe however, City were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday after their quarter-final defeat by Liverpool, and were beaten by League One side Wigan in the fifth round of the FA Cup in February, although they did win the Carabao Cup by beating Arsenal at Wembley.
