Manchester City won the Premier League for the third time in a row. The Citizens’ golden hat-trick was decided by Arsel’s defeat at Nottingham on Saturday. The newly crowned champions confirmed their triumph with a 1-0 win over Chelsea, after which the championship celebrations were in full swing. “We feel unstoppable and there is no end to us at the moment either. We have even bigger games ahead of us, ”said Jack Grealish that the English champions want to complete the treble.
An exciting fight for the title ended somewhat ingloriously. Manchester City secured their 7th Premier League title with a rather unexpected 0-1 defeat to Arsel at Nottingham Forest. The squad of the “citizens” watched the decisive match on television together and immediately began to rejoice at the success. However, the real celebration broke out only after Sunday’s victory at the Etihad Stadium.
“All we have to do is congratulate Manchester City,” said Mikel Arteta, slightly disappointed. His team spent 248 days at the top of the Premier League, a record for a team that did not lift a league trophy at the end of the year.
“The season as such was no doubt a success, but now I am full of emotions because we lost the battle that lasted ten and a half months. I’m sorry. I am responsible for the fact that we did not bring the season to a happy ending, ”Pep Guardiola’s former assistant criticized himself.
It was the Arsel captain who showed that his pupil still had a lot to learn.
In April, the Gunners were still leading by eight points. However, City have punished Arsel for numerous misses with a 12-win streak and are celebrating their fifth title in Guardiola’s seven-year term.
“Everyone expects a lot from us, and we work hard for these moments every day. It requires incredible efforts and great sacrifices. You keep giving your hundred percent over and over again. For eleven whole months, ”Kevin De Bruyne showed how much his fifth title means to him.
An appetizer for a stormy celebration was the match with Chelsea. In it, Guardiola sent a significantly altered starting eleven. However, this did not significantly affect the performance of the game. After a beautiful combition, Julián Alvarez put the hosts ahead and City already secured the lead.
At Etihad Stadium, fans celebrated the title for the third time in a row. Previously, only Manchester United under the leadership of Alex Ferguson in England maged to do this. This is Guardiola’s third hat-trick. He had previously accomplished the same feat in La Liga with Barcelo and in the Bundesliga with Bayern.
“It’s an amazing feeling to win three titles in a row and five overall in the last six years. This is a historic success, ”commented the domince of City to Berrdo Silva.
The Citizens will want to equal their city rival in yet another unique feat of English football. The Red Devils are the only ones to win the treble so far.
City need two wins to equal the memorable record of the 1998/99 season. In the FA Cup fil with United and then in the Champions League fil with Inter.
“If Guardiola succeeds, he will be very happy and it will be clear to everyone that he is the best coach in the world. I want to win these two trophies not only for myself, but also for him, ”Calvin Phillips expressed his mood in the City salon.
The fil at Wembley will take place on 3 June. The battle for the “eared bowl” will take place in a week in Istanbul.
