After Arsenal lost 0-1 away to Nottingham Forest, Manchester City was crowned Premier League champion, which brought Guardiola’s team closer to completing the extraordinary triple crown.
Manchester City is now only two finals away from becoming the first English team to win the triple crown since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 1999: the FA Cup final against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium on June 3, followed by the Champions League final against Inter Milan in Istanbul on June 10.
Arsenal’s defeat means that they can’t catch up with Manchester City in the Premier League competition, and Arteta’s team is four points behind with only one game left.
Manchester City’s next game is against Chelsea at Etihad Stadium.
The blue moon is invincible
Manchester City has won the Premier League in five of the past six seasons. This year’s victory is the ninth top league title in their history and the seventh since their Abu Dhabi boss took over the club in 2008.
Guardiola’s team got off to a good start this season, thanks to Harland’s unprecedented goal in summer, but when the Premier League entered the winter break in FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in November, Manchester City had to finish second after 14 games.
Meanwhile, Manchester City was accused by the Premier League of violating financial rules in February. The possibility of indefinite sanctions still exists, which may include fines, points deduction or demotion. Manchester City continues to deny the allegations.
The Premier League returned on December 26th after the World Cup, and Manchester City proved their dominance. In addition to beating Arsenal twice, Manchester City won 11 consecutive victories, which helped them win the league title for the third time in a row.
Guardiola continues to write myths.
Harland scored a record of 36 goals in a single season in the Premier League and won the title of FWA Man of the Year.
Since 2008, Manchester City has also won two FA Cup titles and five Carling Cup titles.
