Manchester City lifted the Premier League trophy amid jubilant scenes despite Huddersfield gaining a vital point in their battle to avoid relegation with a goalless draw at Etihad Stadium.
Sunday’s fixture was a dead rubber from a City perspective, but they finally got their hands on the Premier League trophy after the game.
In truth, City had a firm grip on the title by Christmas and were officially confirmed champions after Manchester United lost to West Brom.
No one could get near the blue half of Manchester this year as City brushed aside the competition with consummate ease.
This is the third time City have won the league, after winning their first title in 2011-12 season. That season was much closer, with a last-minute Sergio Ageuro goal handing City the title on goal difference.
With two games left City could reach 100 points, and here’s how City fans reacted on Twitter…

Congratulations to City, from a Man Utd fan. You have played the best football, raised the bar and deserve it this season. I hope next year can be more competitive and not done by Christmas
