Manchester City secured their status as Premier League champions for the third consecutive season, thanks to a defeat suffered by title rivals Arsenal at the hands of Nottingham Forest.
The Gunners, who had been at the top of the table for most of the campaign, find themselves four points behind City with just one game remaining.
Under the guidance of manager Pep Guardiola, Manchester City has now claimed the Premier League title in five of the last six seasons. Their recent triumph also puts them in the running for a historic Treble, as they prepare for the FA Cup and Champions League finals scheduled for next month.
The Treble has only been accomplished once before by Manchester United in the 1998-99 season.
City will be presented with the trophy after their match against Chelsea on Sunday, solidifying their position as champions for the ninth time in the club’s history.
Just over a month ago, they were trailing Arsenal by eight points on April 7th, although City had played one game less than Mikel Arteta’s team at that point.
The remarkable turnaround saw City win 11 consecutive league matches and drop only two points out of a possible 42, enabling them to overtake Arsenal and seal the title with three games remaining.
Their quest has been fuelled by the incredible goal-scoring record of Erling Haaland. The 22-year-old Norwegian phenomenon has netted an impressive 52 goals in 48 games across all competitions, including a record-breaking 36 goals in 33 Premier League appearances.
Haaland’s scoring prowess has made him the second player in English top-flight history to surpass the 50-goal mark in a single season, a feat not accomplished in 95 years. He shattered the Premier League record for goals in a season with his 35th strike in early March.
Amidst their triumphant season, Manchester City faced charges from the Premier League concerning more than 100 breaches of financial regulations following a four-year investigation.
