City crowned EPL Champions after Man. United lost at home

The result leaves Manchester City 16 points clear at the top with five games remaining.

It was a tribute to Ferguson's team-building genius that, just two seasons after the departure of the talismanic Eric Cantona, United were once again at the summit - this time thanks to legendary "Class of '92" graduates Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers.

City could also take the title if United beat West Brom and then lose to Bournemouth in midweek.

So City boss Guardiola won't be watching the match on television. "Premier League Champions 17/18", City posted on their official Twitter account.

City captain Vincent Kompany led the celebrations, tweeting: "Champions!" Our Time. Our City.

Gilberto Silva and Patrick Vieira's combative presence in midfield shielded a rearguard that, aside from the towering Sol Campbell, had three players in Ashley Cole, Lauren and Kolo Toure who were converted by Wenger into defenders as he put a premium on technical skill.

The Blues secured the title after Manchester United fell to a 1-0 defeat against West Brom.

"Real Madrid, years ago (in 2004), lost six games (from seven) and didn't win the league".

Arsenal have long since given up hope of making the top four, instead prioritising their chances of making the Champions League next season on winning the Europa League.

Manchester United struggled to cut through Albion's compact defence and when they did found an equal in former goalkeeper Ben Foster, who blocked from Romelu Lukaku at point-blank range and kept out Alexis Sanchez's follow-up with his legs.

"I don't know if I was the first or second or third but I congratulated them face to face when I had the chance", Mourinho said. "Probably because I won eight championships, I was not in the moon with the victory against them because that doesn't make me feel super happy".
