Man City

Man City’s win on Sunday against West Ham sent them to the fourth premier League title consecutively. Manchester City secured an unparalleled fourth consecutive Premier League championship with a stellar 3-1 triumph over West Ham, fuelled by Phil Foden’s brace.

This historic achievement marks a milestone in English football, as no other team has clinched four successive titles in the top flight. Under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, City has forged a legacy of rewriting records, claiming six Premier League victories in the last seven seasons.

During four of those remarkable seasons, Manchester City has not only clinched consecutive titles but has also exceeded the 90-point mark, showcasing their dominance in the Premier League.

This season, City faced a formidable challenge from Arsenal, who were vying for their first title since the 2003/04 campaign.

Yet, City’s resilience and determination prevailed as they thwarted Arsenal’s aspirations and secured yet another league triumph under Pep Guardiola’s stewardship.

Last Month, Arsenal celebrated a hard-fought 0-0 draw at the Etihad Stadium, maintaining their slender one-point lead over City with nine games left in the season. However, Manchester City displayed unwavering determination in the crucial run-in.

They embarked on a relentless streak, winning all nine of their remaining league fixtures and netting an impressive total of 33 goals along the way.

This remarkable display of consistency and firepower propelled them to yet another Premier League title triumph, showcasing their resilience and championship pedigree.

Guardiola admitted that Manchester City felt the pressure during a tense 2-0 victory over Tottenham midweek, a result crucial in keeping the destiny of the title within their control.

Reflecting on a similar scenario two years prior, City required a remarkable late comeback from a 2-0 deficit to secure a dramatic 3-2 victory over Aston Villa on the final day of the season.

However, there was far less drama this time around as West Ham succumbed under the scorching Manchester sun in David Moyes’ final game in charge of the Hammers.

Phil Foden, recently honoured as the football writers’ player of the year for his exceptional goal-scoring prowess, wasted no time in ending any suspense by finding the net just 79 seconds into the match with a stunning strike into the top corner.

Foden doubled City’s lead before the 20-minute mark with a composed finish from Jeremy Doku’s cross, marking his 27th goal of the season.

Despite City’s dominance, they should have been further ahead by halftime, with Alphonse Areola denying Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland failing to convert from close range.
