Manchester City have been confirmed as Premier League champions as neighbours United lost at home to West Brom on a dramatic weekend in the Premier League.
Given how unlikely it was that West Brom, who had only won three games all season, could pull off a victory at Old Trafford, they produced a wonderful display to beat the reds and hand City their third Premier League title and Pep Guardiola’s first in England.
The blues had restored their sixteen point lead over United after winning 3-1 at Spurs on Saturday, an West Brom’s win means the blues now cannot be caught. It is a title that has been well deserved after the blues opened up a commanding lead before Christmas and, despite two league defeats, never looked like surrendering the title.
The moment will be a special one, particularly for Raheem Sterling. The City man has received criticism all season, despite the improvement in his play and also has to constantly endure the boos whenever he returns to Anfield. His next game against Liverpool will be as a Premier League winner.
And blues past and present joined in the celebrations as the blues were crowned. Paul Dickov, who scored the dramatic last minute equaliser at Wembley in 1998 tweeted

Benjamin Mendy , who has really been the voice of theblues on Twitter during his injury tweeted:

City legend Francis Lee took a cheeky poke at the Old Trafford by tweeting:

While West Brom also joined the fun

And what must be said is a big thank you to West Brom for beating United and confirming the blues as champions.
Enjoy the moment, but what was your favourite moment of the season?
