Manchester City fans were on the edge of their seats as the final whistle blew at the Etihad Stadium. The excitement was not due to fear of a comeback by West Ham, but because they were eager to celebrate their team’s historic achievement. Manchester City secured their fourth consecutive Premier League title with a 3-1 victory.

As soon as the match ended, a sea of blue shirts flooded the field. Fans danced, posed for selfies, and ignored announcements asking them to return to their seats. The atmosphere was filled with flares and the smell of sulfur, adding to the celebratory mood.

This title is City’s fourth in a row and their sixth in seven seasons under manager Pep Guardiola. Guardiola has won 17 trophies since joining Manchester City in 2016. Next week, he could add an 18th if City wins the FA Cup final against Manchester United. Overall, Guardiola has 38 trophies as a coach, having previously led Barcelona and Bayern Munich to numerous victories.

Comparisons are being made about whether this Manchester City team is the greatest in English football history. No other English team has won four consecutive league titles, not even Liverpool in the 1970s and 80s or Manchester United in the 90s and 2000s. Last season, City also won the Champions League, completing their collection of major trophies.

Guardiola joined a wealthy Manchester City team in 2016, transforming them into a dominant force. While Arsenal challenged City this season, they fell short by two points. Arsenal may continue to be City’s main rival, especially with Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp stepping down and Manchester United facing changes.

City’s financial strength and young stars like Phil Foden and Erling Haaland make them formidable. However, Guardiola’s future and the outcome of 115 charges of alleged financial wrongdoing could impact City’s reign. City denies any wrongdoing, and Guardiola’s contract runs until the end of next season.
