'Team B' run-in, guard of honor and wild celebrations: How Man City marked a historic third successive Premier League title

May 21, 2023 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
With two games to spare, the Citizens had their coronation inside the Etihad Stadium after securing a win over Chelsea.

Man City made history on Sunday as they clinched their third successive Premier League title, capping off a remarkable season with an memorable 1-0 victory over Chelsea. The title celebrations were nothing short of spectacular, with the club's "Team B" players getting a rare opportunity to shine, their opponents displaying sportsmanship by providing a guard of honor, and wild celebrations erupting throughout the stadium.

24 hours ago, Arsenal's shock defeat to Nottingham Forest confirmed City's status as the runaway league winners and, as a result, Pep Guardiola took the opportunity to rotate their squad. It was a chance for the less-frequently-seen stars to showcase their skills, and they certainly did not disappoint, with the usual players in the starting line-up assuming seats on the bench.

Ahead of kick-off, Chelsea added to the grandeur of the occasion, displaying exceptional sportsmanship by forming a guard of honor for Man City as they made their way onto the pitch. The gesture received thunderous applause from the crowd and further highlighted the mutual admiration and healthy competition between both clubs.

Shortly after, the match kicked off with a sense of anticipation and excitement. Chelsea were hardly a threat for the City fringe players who proved their mettle and demonstrated their hunger to perform at the highest level. In the absence of Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez proved to be a force to reckon with, scoring twice - with one disallowed by VAR - and condemning Chelsea to their third defeat in their last five league outings.

Following the final whistle, the stadium erupted in jubilation as Manchester City players and staff came together to celebrate their historic achievement. The crowd witnessed an emotional moment as captain Ilkay Gundogan lifted the Premier League trophy high above his head, signaling the end of a remarkable campaign for the Sky Blues. Along with their city rivals Manchester United, they are now the second club to win the league in three successive seasons.

The families of the players and staff also came onto the field and joined in the celebration. Meanwhile, in the streets of Manchester, the city was painted blue as fans poured out in droves to celebrate the triumphant season. Fireworks lit up the sky, and chants echoed through the night as supporters reveled in the success of their beloved team.  

As Man City's celebrations continue, the focus now turns to their upcoming Champions League final clash against Inter Milan and the FA Cup final with Manchester United. The Sky Blues will be aiming to secure a historic treble, further cementing their status as one of the dominant forces in European football.
