How Pep Guardiola's tactics made Manchester City Premier League champions

Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling celebrates with Gabriel Jesus after scoring their third goal in last night’s match at Wembley

But, as he did in the sapping derby defeat to Manchester United last weekend, the England global passed up a pair of glorious chances.

While there has always been an inevitability about Manchester City's fifth top-tier league title in English football, even manager Pep Guardiola probably never envisaged the ease with which it would ultimately be achieved.

A 1-0 loss to West Brom on Sunday confirmed City as Premier League champions, a week after United had managed to stave off the inevitable by beating City at the Eithad.

Manchester City's 3-1 win against Spurs on Saturday has left Guardiola's men needing just one more victory to seal the Premier League title.

As for United, despite knowing that the title race was all but over, it was a truly insipid performance, managing just four shots on target, with only one truly testing the Albion 'keeper Ben Foster.

"My feeling is that United will win a lot of points because they are in a good shape and have top players. They deserve all my respect". "I have three days off and tomorrow, I have golf".

By completing the job after 33 games, City have emulated the achievement of United, who secured the crown with the same number of matches to spare in 2001. "You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months".

This was not the result, or Kevin De Bruyne's sensational victor, but the way in which City strangled Chelsea - the Premier League champions - in their own back yard.

There was the possibility that they could suffer a hangover after moving 11 points clear at the top of the table and breaking the record for successive victories.

Tottenham are fourth in the standings on 67 points and are unbeaten in their last 14 league games.

Swansea moved five points ahead of Southampton after drawing with Everton 1-1.

"We are able to win two games".

"It's brilliant and we're super happy but there is still so much work to be done before the full potential is unlocked for the whole team".

It means the 24-year-old is the league's most accurate goalkeeper by a comfortable distance.

Ederson did not come cheap at a reported 35 million pounds, but the results have been mightily impressive with the Brazilian being beaten only 25 times so far.
