Manchester City FC just snatched another last-day win, 2-0, over West Ham United at home to become the English Premier League Champions just as they did two years back.
Although their previous Championship title was decided only on the last day on a goal difference advantage, this year’s title was not the case, after Liverpool could only managed a 3-3 draw last weekend against an exigent Crystal Palace that has threatened most big teams at home.
While City needed just a point to start the celebration, Nasri placed his side ahead with a screamer at the 39 minute with a 25-yard strike.
As if to say that wasn’t enough and to evade any nervy ending like in 2012, it was City’s skipper, Kompany who sealed the victory just four minutes into the second half to set the fans on ecstasy.
After 38 playing days, City ended at top with 86 points just two ahead of runners-up Liverpool, but with a resounding +65 goal difference with the best attacking strikers of the season like Yaya Toure.
Either by faith or luck, City had the best chances of winning the season after their neighbours, Manchester United lost their form and head with David Moyes.
No luck, but hope
Although many people would have been happy if Liverpool grabbed the title after waiting for too long, at least Liverpool should be proud of their overall achievement looking at what the team spent on the transfer market and the results obtained at the end.
With a local coach, Brendan Roger, and a young experimental team, Liverpool should be the team to watch out for come next season.
With 84 points and a goal difference of +51 and two players scoring above the twenty goal mark for the season with prolific forward, Luis Suarez netting 31, highest scorer of the season, Liverpool downgraded Chelsea to the third position.
Jose Mourinho who ruled out his side several times winning this season could not upset the bookmakers’ bets with his return to the Premier League, but might be planning already for next year.
Overall, it has been an fascinating season from start to end, although Norwich now join Fulham and Cardiff City to the championship they put up a brilliant fight back and could be back so soon.
