Manchester City Crowned EPL Champions

For the third time in four seasons, Manchester City have clinched the English Premier League (EPL) title.

The club – who were sitting pretty at the top of the table with 80 points – were crowned champions following Manchester United’s 2-1 loss to Leicester City on Tuesday night, 11 May.

As a result, City have now won three EPL titles under Pep Guardiola – his team last won the championship during the 2018/2019 season.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Guardiola praised the Citizens and the backroom staff for their hard work on and off the pitch.

The 50-year-old Spaniard said: “This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other. 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.”

He also heartily thanked the club’s fans: “In our toughest moments, we couldn’t hear the crowd get behind us as usual, but we know they are with us everywhere we go and that has lifted us.”
