Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions for 2020-21, after winning the Carabao Cup and making it to the Champions League final.
The Blues have now tasted English top-flight glory on three occasions in the last four years, with big spending at the Etihad Stadium delivering the desired results.
City’s third title in four years was confirmed on Tuesday when second-placed Manchester United fell 2-1 at home against Leicester City.
It completed a great turnaround for City, who were 11th in November after a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham but secured the crown with three matches to spare.
Pep Guardiola has described Manchester City’s Premier League title triumph during the coronavirus pandemic as the “hardest one”.
“This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other,” Guardiola said. “This was the hardest one.
“We will always remember this season for the way that we won. I am so proud to be the manager here and of this group of players.
“They are so special. To come through this season – with all the restrictions and difficulties we’ve faced – and show the consistency we have is remarkable.
“It is relentless. Every single day, they are there, fighting for success, trying always to be better. They have been so, so resilient.”
