Manchester City have WON the Premier League title after Arsenal were beaten 1-0 by Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal’s devastating defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday evening handed the title to Pep Guardiola’s side, who play Chelsea on Sunday with their top-flight crowns still firmly on their heads.

Mikel Arteta’s side are estimated to have held the lead for a staggering 93 per cent of the season, but City kept apace, with an emphatic 4-1 win over the Gunners at the Etihad in April, leaving the Citizens with one hand on the trophy.

Crucial to Guardiola’s title charge were the goals of Erling Haaland, who will finish the season as the highest ever scorer in the top-flight’s history in a remarkable debut campaign.

But impressive as the Norwegian’s goals have been, Guardiola’s decision to switch from a from a 4-3-3 to a less orthodox 3-2-4-1 kick-started the ruthless run of form that saw him reel in his protege.

Guardiola’s City have now won the league in five out of the last six seasons.
