Manchester City fans celebrated as their team clinched the English Premier League title for the fourth consecutive season. Man City managed to edge out Arsenal by just two points after a fierce battle over the past few months.

This marks the first time in Premier League history that a team has won the title four years in a row. This achievement places City among an elite group of the most successful teams in Europe, those that have maintained their titles in consecutive seasons in major leagues.

Man City is now approaching Real Madrid's record in La Liga, where they secured the title five times in a row. However, City is still a long way from Bayern Munich's record of 11 consecutive Bundesliga titles from 2013 to 2023. Juventus follows Bayern with nine straight titles in Serie A, then Lyon with seven in France, Real Madrid with five in Spain, and Manchester City tied with Paris Saint-Germain with four each.

Entering the final match at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City led Arsenal by two points and knew that a win would secure the championship. The celebration started early as Phil Foden scored the first goal just two minutes into the match, and he doubled the lead 16 minutes later. Although Mohammed Kudus managed to narrow the gap, Rodri sealed the victory by scoring the third goal in the 59th minute.

It is noteworthy that Manchester City will compete in the FA Cup final against their local rivals, Manchester United, on Saturday, May 25th, at Wembley Stadium. This highly anticipated match sees Pep Guardiola's squad striving to retain the FA Cup title for the Citizens. They are determined to overcome the formidable challenge posed by Manchester United. Fans are eagerly awaiting this clash between the two Manchester giants.
