Manchester City win Premier League for third successive season after Arsenal lose

Manchester City won the Premier League for the third straight year after fellow title contenders Arsenal fell against Nottingham Forest.

After being defeated 1-0 on Saturday, The Gunners are now four points behind City with just one game remaining after Saturday defeat.

Pep Guardiola’s team has won the league title in five of the last six seasons.

The FA Cup and Champions League finals are coming up next month, giving them the opportunity to win a treble.

Only Manchester United, in 1998–1999, had before accomplished that feat; on June 3, City will face bitter rivals, United, at Wembley before taking on Inter Milan in Istanbul, where they will be vying for their first Champions League victory.

Captain Ilkay Gundogan – who has scored four goals in the past two league games – said: “The Premier League is without doubt the most demanding and competitive league in the world; so that tells you everything about what an achievement this is.

“To have won this trophy three times in a row and five times in six years is incredible. That quality and consistency helps sum up what Manchester City stands for and ensures the club will continue to strive for success going forward.

“It has been a season I will never forget.”

City, champions for a ninth time in the club’s history, had trailed Arsenal by eight points on 7 April, although they had played one game fewer than Mikel Arteta’s leaders at that point.

It is only the fourth time that a team has been as many as eight points clear after at least 28 Premier League games and failed to win the title.

Only one team has ever had 69 points with 10 games remaining – as Arsenal did – and failed to win the title. That was Liverpool in 2018-19, when they finished on 97 points, one behind City.

But City have won 11 league games in a row. They have dropped just two points from a possible 42 – to overhaul Arsenal and clinch the title with three games remaining.
