Manchester City won the league without even having to play. Manchester United lost 2-1 at home to Leicester, all but guaranteeing the league for Pep Guardiola.
The players quickly took to social media to celebrate their outstanding achievement. They have won the league title with three matches to spare.
Despite this, Guardiola says that the league remains the priority.
“At the start of every season, the Premier League is the most important title for us,” he said.
“This is the one where you have to be there every three days, playing all your rivals home and away.
“Only by being the very best, week in week out, can you win this competition. It is a huge success.” He said to the club’s media.
“It is so important to say a huge thank to all our fans,” he added.
“In our toughest moments, we couldn’t hear the crowd get behind us as usual, but we know they are with us everywhere we go and that has lifted us.
“I promise them we sense their love, we appreciate it and we could not have done what we have done without it.
“I hope we can all celebrate together one day not too far away.
“It has been such a hard year for so many people. This one is really for our fans and for Colin Bell and all his family.” Guardiola concluded.
They will receive the Premier League trophy in their final home match against Everton next week Sunday (23 May 2021).
