As such, a slip-up for City in their clash against West Ham United and a win for the Gunners vs Everton would have seen Mikel Arteta's charges crowned the champions.

While the north Londoners secured a 2-1 win over the Toffees, City hammered West Ham 3-1 to all but end Arsenal's slim hopes of conquering the English top-flight.

Phile Foden was City's man of the moment, scoring a brace to help the Citizens make history.
