Man City crowned as Premier League champions

OFFICIAL: Man City crowned as Premier League champions after Man Utd's defeat to Leicester

May 11, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Citizens have finally been handed the title after the Red Devils failed in their bid to delay their coronation against Leicester on Tuesday night.

For a record sixth-time, the Premier League title has been decided at Old Trafford with Man City being crowned as champions following Leicester's win over Manchester United. On Tuesday night, the Foxes secured a 2-1 win over the Red Devils to consolidate their status as Champions League contenders for next season, ultimately putting to an end their host's slim aspirations of winning the competition.

Owning to the congested schedule handed to the 20-time English champions, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer resorted to fielding a rather weakened side against Brendan Rodgers' men, resting as many as nine players who featured in the starting lineup against Aston Villa on Sunday. Among the lot, only Scot McTominay and Mason Greenwood were given the nod to start with Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba, among others, all placed on the bench.

The effect of the decision was felt earlier in the proceeding, with young Luke Thomas smashing home the perfect volley to put Leicester in front. Less than five minutes later, Mason Greenwood continued his fine form by combining with Amad Traore to restore parity before the half-time team talks. In the 66th minute, Caglar Soyuncu fired the Foxes in front once again to end a six-game winless run at Old Trafford for the King Power outfit.

With the result, Manchester City have been confirmed as the new champions of the English Premier League, taking over the crown from Liverpool who now risk missing out on a Champions League place for next season. The Citizens have now won five league titles  with three coming under Pep Guardiola. They have now drawn level with Chelsea for the number of Premier league trophies while Manchester United remains atop the list with 13. 

The Red Devils' defeat on Tuesday night also meant that Leicester City's place in next season's Champions League is almost guaranteed.
