Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat against Nottingham Forest has solidified Manchester City’s unassailable lead in the Premier League, leaving them with three matches remaining. This victory marks the fifth time in six seasons that City has secured the prestigious league title, adding to Pep Guardiola’s impressive reign of 12 major honors at the club. The team now stands on the verge of potentially winning their 13th major trophy as they prepare to face Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley on June 3. Moreover, they have also secured a spot in the UEFA Champions League final against Inter on June 10, their second appearance in the last three seasons in this elite European competition.
Throughout the current season, City has displayed exceptional form, winning 27 out of their 35 matches and scoring an impressive total of 92 goals, accumulating 85 points in the process. This remarkable performance has firmly established them as one of the most dominant forces in English football. In fact, they join an exclusive group of only five clubs in history to have achieved the remarkable feat of securing three consecutive top-flight titles, a list that includes Huddersfield Town, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United.
Looking ahead, City will enter the 2023/24 campaign with an enticing opportunity to make history by becoming the first team to win the English top-flight title for four consecutive years. This recent success is particularly significant for the club, as it bridges a considerable 119-year gap between their first major trophy win in the 1904 FA Cup and their most recent triumph. Although this duration stands as the second longest gap between wins in English football, City’s achievement demonstrates their ability to reach new heights and maintain a dominant presence on the national stage.
