Manchester City wins the Premier League following Arsenal’s defeat at Forest


Manchester City have clinched the Premier League title for a fifth time in six seasons following Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at Forest on Saturday, May 20.

Super Eagles striker Taiwo Awoniyi’s goal in the first half was enough to give Nottingham Forest the victory and also prevent their relegation from the Premier League.

The Gunners started the season on a barnstorming pace, but things started to fall apart in early April when their draw at Anfield started a troubling run of three more games without a victory, allowing City to cut the formerly eight-point deficit.

Arsenal’s sucker punch landed last weekend when Brighton dominated Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, winning convincingly 3-0. On the same day, City defeated Everton with a similar score.

On Sunday, May 21, Manchester City will play Chelsea in their final home game of the year, where Pep Guardiola’s team will lift the trophy for the third straight year.

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.
