Watch: The moment Manchester City found out they had won the Premier League

The scenes were captured at full time of the Arsenal defeat


Footage of the moment Manchester City were confirmed as champions has circulated on social media on Saturday evening.

Manchester City clinched their fifth Premier League title in six seasons without even kicking a ball this weekend as long-time challengers Arsenal lost 1-0 away to Nottingham Forest courtesy of a goal from Taiyo Awoniyi.

It means that the Cityzens, who still have two games in hand on Mikel Arteta’s side, have an unassailable four-point lead ahead of the last game of the season next weekend, and could stretch that to a mammoth ten points should they win against Chelsea and Brighton in the next five days.

Leading the Premier League for so long, Arsenal came undone following a run of woeful form which has seen them draw three and lose three of their last eight games.

It meant that their lead at the top evaporated rapidly, and with Manchester City not having dropped a point since February, they have won the title with games to spare.

Footage of the exact moment they did so was shared by the club, with the players counting down the final seconds of the Nottingham Forest goal before being sent into delirious celebrations and Jack Grealish being at the centre of proceedings with his phone out recording the moment.

Of course, Manchester City’s season is far from finished, with four games standing between themselves and a historic treble.

Facing Inter Milan in the final of the Champions League on 3rd June, they will also contest the FA Cup final against Manchester United as they look to win their first European trophy, and become the first English side since the Red Devils in 1999 to lift a treble.
