What a stellar afternoon it is in the history of English Premier League, as Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City wins their 4th Premier League in five seasons of stay. In all , Pep has granted the citizens 8 major trophies to add to their trophy cabinet.

Manchester City’s consistency is the difference in this seasons Premier League. Arch contenders Liverpool, have won more matches since the season commences, but teams like West Hamilton United and Leicester City, injured the Anfield fighters, which caused Liverpool to drop valuable points.

Guardiola’s City suffers the same fate, also losing to Spurs in the opening weekend, yet , never lost hope for long. Winning the next three games after the setback, scoring 11 goals with clean sheets. That tenacity proves to be a theme for the citizens.

Their next Premier League defeat arrives against Crystal Palace in October. City responded laudably by winning their next 12 games in the competition. When Spurs completes the double over them, they also dismantled their fierce rivals, Manchester United in the derby on their Etihad replay.

After the defeat at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid, City bounces back with mouth-watering performances. City scores five goals in each of their next two games to cement their dominance.
Ace midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne steals the occasion in these wins.

City is not about one player. Fifteen different players have scored twice or more for Guardiola’s side in the Premier League this season. Raheem Sterling is the Premier League player of the month for December. Gabriel Jesus scored six times in April, Riyad Mahrez has 24 goals in all competitions to his name, Kevin De Bruyne has 19, Rahim Sterlin 17, Phil Foden 14 and Gabriel Jesus with 13 goals.

In the final round, German international, Ilkay Gundogan, steals the occasion. Replicating the alpha and omega stain, by Zinedine Zidane in 2002 champions league final, against Bayern Leverkusen, scoring both opening and winning goals.
Gundogan pulls one goal back for City, which boosts them to attack with tenacity. Then in a few mins after, Rodri scores a long range stunner to equalise Coutinho’s goal. Not wasting much time, Gundogan finds the net again to complete the task for the day.

It is a day no City fan will ever forget and you can testify how the drama unfolds away from public view as our cameras show us the pitch invasion at the end of the final blow of the whistle.

Indeed City is a legend , Pep is a gladiator.
