Manchester City Secures Historic Fourth Consecutive English Premier League Title

Under Pep Guardiola, City has turned the pages of history, since no team in the history of the English premier league has ever won four straight titles.

The previous seven seasons have seen six Premier League victories under the direction of the Catalan coach.

Additionally, City has scored more than 90 points in four of those years. They faced pressure this season to keep Arsenal from winning a first crown since 2003–04.

With nine games remaining, the Gunners lead City by one point after their 0-0 draw at the Etihad last month.

But in the final stretch, the champs remained unwavering, winning their last nine league games and tallying 33 goals.

Guardiola acknowledged After a tense 2-0 victory against Tottenham in midweek, City felt the pressure and maintained control over the title.

Two years earlier, they faced a similar situation and defeated Aston Villa 3-2 on the last day after an incredible comeback from a 2-0 deficit.

In the last game David Moyes managed the Hammers, West Ham melted under the sweltering Manchester sun with significantly less drama.

After his best-ever goal-scoring season, Foden was just named the Football Writers’ Player of the Year, putting an end to any suspense after just 79 seconds.

The England international arrowed a blistering drive into the top corner to ensure there was no nervous wait for the title party to get started.

In less than 20 minutes, Foden scored his 27th goal of the year, another brilliant left-footed finish from Jeremy Doku’s cross to extend City’s lead.

Alphonse Areola denied Kevin De Bruyne, while Erling Haaland failed to convert from close range, meaning City should have been out of sight before halftime.

The first half’s narrative took an unexpected turn when Mohammed Kudus’ spectacular overhead kick from a West Ham corner soared high past Stefan Ortega.

Despite having a forgettable day in front of goal, Haaland won his second Golden Boot in as many seasons in the Premier League.

The Norwegian spooned over another enticing cross from Doku, wasting a great opportunity to give the home team a two-goal lead again.

City swiftly restored order at the start of the second period and fittingly it was Rodri, himself a player of the year contender, who delivered the knockout blow to Arsenal’s title hopes.

Since March 2023, the Spaniard has never lost for either his country or his club.

The three Premier League games in which the 27-year-old was suspended were City’s only three losses.

Areola had the opportunity to score this time, but the Frenchman was unable to convert Rodri’s meek attempt.

From the start of play, City could easily win and extend an incredible 35-game winning streak across all competitions.

The lone setback during that run came from a quarterfinal Champions League loss to Real Madrid via penalty shootout, which kept Guardiola’s team from winning back-to-back trebles.

When Manchester United takes on the formidable task of defeating their local rivals in the FA Cup final the following Saturday, they might double that success.

City has shown themselves worthy of the title of greatest English football team ever by attaining an unprecedented level of league dominance.

Even though the team begged them to keep off the pitch, thousands of fans flooded onto the field at the end.
