Manchester City crowned Premier League champions for fourth season in a row

Manchester City are champions of England again.

Pep Guardiola’s side have achieved an unprecedented fourth Premier League title in a row thanks to a 3-1 victory over West Ham on the final day of the season.

They went into the fixture knowing a win would seal the deal, regardless of what Arsenal did against Everton at the Emirates, with the Gunners sitting two points adrift at the top of the table.

Any nerves at the Etihad were quickly settled as Phil Foden fired City ahead in just the second minute in spectacular fashion. From 25 yards, the England man arrowed a pinpoint drive into the top corner past the despairing dive of Alphonse Areola.

Tomas Soucek handled as he scored what would have been a consolation for the Hammers, only for VAR to intervene. Elsewhere, Kai Havertz scored a late winner for Arsenal, but they must settle for second place.

City have closed out the season in typically ruthless fashion, claiming victory in each of their final nine games of the top-flight campaign.

Following a goalless draw at the Emirates at the end of march, City have been faultless, sweeping all before them to ultimately leapfrog the Gunners at the top of the table.

Arsenal themselves have barely put a foot wrong, but defeat by Aston Villa in north London last month ultimately proved fatal to their hopes of a first title since 2004.
