English Premier League (EPL): Manchester City has recently been crowned EPL champions for the third time in four seasons after Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat to Leicester City.
Pep Guardiola’s men have now won three titles in four seasons, regaining their crown at the first time of asking following Liverpool’s 2019-20 success.
United’s defeat means City are 10 points clear with both sides having three games left to play.
City have already won the League Cup this season and can secure a treble if they beat Chelsea in the Champions League final on May 29.
This is Manchester City’s fourth Premier League title.
Earlier, Fulham were relegated after a 2-0 loss at home to Burnley today that assured the Clarets of their top-flight status.
London club Fulham will now join already-demoted West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United in the second-tier Championship next season. Fulham had to avoid defeat at Craven Cottage to maintain their slim hopes of beating the drop. But first-half goals from Burnley’s Ashley Westwood and Chris Wood put paid to their chances of staying up.
Fulham’s defeat also meant all three relegation places were decided with at least three games to go, ensuring there would be no last-day drama in the battle to beat the drop.
