Pep Guardiola to Golf During Potentially Title Clinching Man United Match

When I heard pundits and fans in November they said it's all done, it's impossible for City to drop points.

"Congratulations to Manchester City on their Premier League title win", read the message on United's Twitter account.

Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions for the 2017/18 season as Pep Guardiola's side were handed the crown following Manchester United's shock home defeat against West Brom on Sunday.

The decision was made at a meeting of the league's 20 teams yesterday, despite video technology being used at this summer's World Cup. Manchester City too was left to rue to a couple of decisions that cost them a place in the semi-finals of Europe's premier competition.

City, however, now sit on 87, and would reach 102 points if they were to win each of their remaining five games, thus becoming the first to ever crack 100 in the English top flight in the process.

The 34-year-old has barely featured for City this season, only playing seven games in the league.

"And you can not say they have had anything other than a spectacularly successful season, but I think Guardiola's third season will seal his legacy".

However, this time there was no second-half collapse as City should have ran out even more convincing winners. It's robust. The Premier League is so, so robust, that's the reason hopefully on Sunday if we win, it'll stay in our hearts for the remainder of our lives.

"The fact is that since November or December we were already champions".

Inter Milan's Champions League qualification hopes suffered a setback Saturday when it was held to a scoreless draw by Atalanta in their Serie A clash.

West Brom were 12 points adrift of safety, winless in the league since January prior to kickoff and under the watch of caretaker boss Darren Moore, but offered the hosts an early warning shot with a couple of chances. I'm sorry; it's much more important what these guys have done this season.

We think it's pretty nice but what who exactly will be wearing it next season? Real Madrid, many years ago, lose six games in a row and didn't win the league.

The opener then came from a move not usually associated with a Guardiola side - with a long ball from Kyle Walker launched into the path of Gabriel Jesus, who outpaced Davinson Sanchez before netting in the 22nd minute.

We look at five of the key players in City's title triumph.

It was always a matter of when rather than if City would be champions after they led the way for most of the season.
