Manchester City are Premier League champions after Manchester United lost to West Bromwich Albion.
It is the team’s first league title since 2014.
The result leaves Manchester City 16 points clear at the top with five games remaining.
It is also City’s first win under former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola, who may have missed the moment after saying on Saturday that he had a round of golf booked with his son.

City’s captain Vincent Kompany told Sky Sports: “You can’t describe the feeling. It’s amazing. It’s such an achievement and I’m proud of the team.
“I had a feeling when I woke up this morning but it’s a different experience when you’re waiting for a team to lose.
“But it feels just as good because you can’t take it for granted.
“I’ve never been able to retain the title so I want to see if this team has got it in them to carry on and be even more successful.”
