Man City wins Premier League title for fourth consecutive year as Arsenal finishes second: Highlights

Manchester City has put its stamp on history.

With a 3-1 win at home against West Ham on Sunday, the club has earned an unprecedented fourth consecutive English Premier League title. It was its sixth championship in the past seven seasons, a feat never accomplished before.

Arsenal, despite its best season since “The Invincibles” went undefeated in 2003–04, fell just two points short in the table. The Gunners (28-5-5) won 2-1 at home against Everton on Sunday.

Phil Foden, voted EPL Player of the Season earlier this week, notched the first two goals for Manchester City (28-7-3), at the 2nd and 18th minute, respectively.

“I believe in scoring a bit too early,” said Foden of his early strike. He later added, “The second settled us a little bit.”

West Ham’s Mohammed Kudus’ incredible bicycle kick off a corner in the 42nd minute gave hope for Arsenal fans, but it wasn’t enough.

Manchester City put the game — and the season — away on Rodri’s goal in the 59th minute.

The result gives Manchester City eight EPL titles, the second most in history behind Manchester United’s 13.

It was also Pep Guardiola’s 12th league championship in 15 seasons as manager. His six English top-flight titles rank second all time behind only Sir Alex Ferguson (13).
