Manchester City wins the Premier League after Arsenal’s defeat to Nottingham Forest
Manchester City have won the Premier League title for a fifth time in six seasons after Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, May 20.
A first-half strike from Super Eagles star, Taiwo Awoniyi was enough to secure the win at the City Ground, and it also helped Nottingham Forest survive relegation from the Premier League.
The Gunners set a barnstorming pace this season, but the wheels started to come off in early April when their draw at Anfield kick-started a worrying run of three further games without a win, opening the door for City to close what was recently an eight-point gap.
Arsenal’s sucker punch landed last weekend when Brighton came away from the Emirates Stadium with a resounding 3-0 victory, on the same day City beat Everton by the same scoreline.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will face Chelsea on Sunday, May 21, in their final home game of the season, where they will once again lift the trophy they have retained for the third season in succession.
City are now two victories away from completing a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble, a feat only achieved once in English football by Manchester United in 1998/99.
