Manchester City take the EPL championship

Manchester United defeat in the thirty fourth round against the last team of the EPL West Bromwich brought their eternal rivals the expected championship.

The Red Devils’ loss to the Throstles cannot be regarded as the main factor of the Citizens victory in the championship. Josep Guardiola’s side has done a great job on its way to the title on Saturday, defeating Tottenham at Wembley, 1:3. Nevertheless, this doesn’t negate the symbolism of  the fact that Jose Mourinho’s team with its defeat at Old Trafford prematurely arranged gold medals for the antagonistic neighbors. Whereas defeating them a round before that at Etihad Stadium in a match full of goals, 2:3.

The head coach of the Red Devils Jose Mourinho congratulated Guardiola in his style after the lost match:

“As for the fact that Man City have secured the championship because of our loss, I have won titles and I would be mad if someone said that I won the title because of a loss of another team, because I got the most points. It’s not fair to say that Man City won the title because Man Utd did not win today”.

The purchase of Ederson, called to replace the unreliable in terms of the English championship Claudio Bravo, was the first step to success for the Sky Blues. After that there were point reinforcements of the defense line in persons of Kyle Walker and Aymeric Laporte. Serious changes in the squad allowed Pep Guardiola to create a side with long reserve bench. Raheem Sterling who didn’t appear in the squad because of Leroy Sane’s progress and David Silva’s shape, brought more than 20 points to the Citizens’ asset thanks to goals on the last minutes of the match. Kevin de Bruyne became a conductor of Manchester City attacks. This allowed the attacking line in the persons of the Belgian, Sane, Aguero, Silva, Sterling and Jesus to score in total seventy two goals. For the past year, the halfback also managed to get into FIFA team of the year.

Manchester City deservedly became first in the championship, having secured the title five rounds before the end of the tournament. Now, the Citizens’ Catalan manager has gaining a bigger amount of points setting a new EPL record in priority. Therefore, golf games with his son have to be rescheduled.
