Manchester: Manchester City claimed the English Premier League title for the second time in three years after winning 2-0 at home to West Ham United on the final day of the season on Sunday.
Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany scored in each half to give City the title and make Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini the first non-European to steer a club to the English championship.
Liverpool finished two points below City in second place after coming from behind to win 2-1 at home to Newcastle United in their final game.
Tottenham Hotspur beat Aston Villa 3-0 to pip Manchester United to the last available Europa League qualifying spot, while Norwich City’s relegation was confirmed after a 2-0 loss at home to Arsenal.
…and what a fantastic one it was! Manchester City may be champions but can Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, or even Manchester United and Tottenham challenge them next term?
That’s one for August, now our attention turns towards the Championship play-offs, as well as next week’s FA Cup final.
There’s also a World Cup next month so make sure you keep with us for more live coverage in the next few weeks.

‘We Are The Champions’ was played loudly over the PA system, with the crowd almost in unison singing along.
Kompany keeps us waiting, but after waving a few more players on to the podium, the Manchester City captain then lifts the Premier League trophy to some impressive pyro as he is quickly mobbed by team-mates.
Manchester City are the new Premier League champions!
