Manchester City, Premier League champions after United’s defeat

Manchester City won the seventh Premier League in its history on Tuesday, the third in the last four years, without needing to dress short after Manchester United’s defeat (1-2) against Leicester City in a match belonging to matchday 36.

Pep Guardiola’s team had hovered around the title for more than two weeks, but his recent loss to Chelsea – with whom he will fight in the Champions League final – delayed his alirion. However, this Tuesday and from home, they have won the domestic championship.

City adds 80 points to United’s 70 with three games remaining, a figure more than enough to celebrate its seventh English League, the fifth in the last decade of the ‘sky blues’ and the third since Pep Guardiola took over the team. This is his ninth league as a manager and the tenth title since joining the Etihad.

The title, the second of the year after the League Cup, came after the stumble of the ‘red devils’, who fell on Tuesday at Old Trafford in a game full of alternatives. Luke Thomas advanced the visitors with a shot to the very squad against which De Gea could do nothing, after ten minutes of the game in a great collective action. The locals answered at the quarter of an hour with a cross shot from Mason Greenwood, but 20 minutes to go, a header from Caglar Soyuncu gave the victory to those of Brendan Rodgers, who will remain third, but four points behind their victim on Tuesday.
