Manchester City clinched the Premier League on Sunday thanks to a gutsy performance from cellar dwellers West Brom. The worst team in the league got away with all 3 points as they traveled to Old Trafford and beat Manchester United 1-0. Jay Rodriguez latched onto a stray header from Nemanja Matic following a West Brom corner.
Manchester City has won 3 titles in 7 years, with only a quartet of players present for all 3, Yaya Toure, Vincent Kompany, Sergio Aguero, and David Silva. Manchester City beat Tottenham Hotspurs earlier in the weekend, and most were anticipating the celebrations to begin next weekend, but Manchester United failed to show up after they beat Manchester City last weekend, coming back from a 2 goal deficit to win 3-2.
With 5 matches still to play, City can still break records this season. They have a chance to break the 100 points barrier for the first time ever in Premier League History and the beat the current record of 95 set by Chelsea 13 years ago. They also have the chance to take the league goal scoring record of 103, also set by Chelsea. Pep’s men will look to set the record for the widest ever Premier League winning margin of 18 points, which was accomplished by Manchester United 18 years ago.
