How social media reacted to Manchester City’s Premier League title win
City clinched the title after United’s shock loss.
Manchester City were confirmed as Premier League champions on Sunday after neighbours Manchester United lost to West Brom.
Pep Guardiola’s side put themselves on the brink of title glory with Saturday’s 3-1 victory at Tottenham, and United’s failure to take points off the bottom side left City beyond mathematical reach.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at the best reaction to City’s emphatic title win.
