Under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United were a dominant force in the Premier League.
Since the Scotsman’s retirement in 2013, the Red Devils have gone through a tense transitional period, which has included the sacking of two managers.
Jose Mourinho is currently the man in charge, but he was unable to help the team push Manchester City to the end.
Pep Guardiola’s men stormed to the summit, and ironically it was their arch rivals United who handed them the crown due to a 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.
After wrapping up the title with around a month to spare, City began breaking a handful of records.
On the final day of the season on Sunday, the blue half of Manchester left it late to defeat Southampton, with Gabriel Jesus scoring the one and only goal in the 94th minute.
The victory brought City’s points total up to 100, marking the first time that a Premier League club have reached triple figures in the division.
It must have been painful for United fans to watch their neighbours succeed this season, but some had kind words for City once the campaign came to a close on Sunday.
I'm very vocal about being red through and through…but well done City.
A delight to watch this season. 100 points, incredible.
Manchester No.1 and No.2 in the hardest division in the world.

#mufc no point being bitter congrats to @ManCity in achieving getting 100 points & 32 wins in the #PremierLeague & @MoSalah in winning the golden boot. We need to win the #FACup next week & improve our squad in the summer to get anywhere near City next season.

A 19 point difference between United and City is a sad state of affairs. A poor season from #MUFC big season needed next year

We need 6 world class players to come close catching City #mufc

A lot of United fans moaning on here lately, 81pts any other season would be great. City have just been amazing this year, 32 wins is phenomenal and I doubt we will see that again. Onwards and upwards. #MUFC #MNUWAT #PremierLeague
