Manchester City fell to Chelsea on Saturday and missed out on the opportunity to clinch the 2020-21 Premier League title.
That slip-up merely delayed the inevitable.
Second-place Manchester United lost at home to Leicester City 2-1 on Monday and remain 10 points behind their Manchester rivals with three games left to play. Thus, City have been confirmed champions and return to the English top-flight mountaintop after Liverpool won the title last June.
This is City’s fifth Premier League reign and their third title in four years under manager Pep Guardiola.
